Lesson 104, Blue Grass Musician

Here are two EGOs up on books - a slight underlit portrait of our hat wearing musician, George Downing, folkie extraordinaire of Silver Plume, Colorado.

The trick here is to light the background (hintergrund) with one of the two EGOs while at the same time "broad" lighting our "talent".

Again, as with the earlier portraits, we use both the light and a reflector card as close as possible to the subject and avoid any source light from the EGO reaching the camera lens to avoid flare.
