Re: Lighting a Fashion Show Runway

Totally agree with SterlingFX, it depends on the show. A high end Fashion Week type event will have perfect lighting and it is easy to shoot.

I recently was with a local designer who used the back room of a restaurant with heavy tungsten 'romantic' lighting. She asked me to shoot as the second shooter. I basically used as much ambient as I dared and bounced off the ceiling.

The paid shooter was using a pair of ABs in umbrellas, maybe 36". He had one over his head in one corner, the other at the opposite end of the room in the other corner. I saw his work and it was well lit.

Here are a pair of photos showing his setup:
