Gustavo like millions of other children loves to play Rock Band on his Wii. Seeing how much he loves to jam on the virtual guitar I thought it would be fun to capture some of the essence of jammin on the guitar this week. Something which has a bit of a Fender Stratocaster advertisement feel.
Above is the outcome of the attempt. It is a very simple shot, using only one speedlight into a gridded 24" softbox. But it gave me the light I was after, soft, yet a bit hard thanks to boosting blacks in post processing.
This was not my original plan. At first I wanted to get a stage lighting affect, but just couldn't get it to come off the way I wanted. This was plan B, and with the angle, I'm actually quite happy with it.
What do you think?
