I don't photograph people very often. Once a year, I break out the studio lights to capture some portraits of the youth baseball players that I coach. This year, I'm managing an team of 11 year old players.
The set up for these pictures was relatively quick and easy. The backdrop was a collapsible green screen--it pops open into a 4x6' panel. I used one strobe (Einstein) inside of a Buff softbox. I used a couple of my Nikon speedlights to illuminate the background. I asked a parent to hold a piece of white foam board on the shadow side of the player to provide a bit of fill. The entire photo shoot (10 players) only took about 90 minutes.
This was the first time I tried using the green screen. It sure made extracting the players an easy task...it took me less than 15 seconds to select and extract a player from the frame!
Here are some of my favorites. Please note that I did not design the poster template. I purchased the template (including the fonts) and then customized it for this shoot.
