Giant Diffusion Wall

Earlier this month I headed over to our FAVORITE dentist’s office to do some holiday team photos for them.  We’ve been going to Hilton Dental for quite a while and just LOVE how well they take care of us! 

Their office has this really cool translucent wall of glass bricks separating two of the work stations.  So I decided to put it to use.  For the first shot, I placed two SB-800 strobes with blue gels behind the wall to give me a friendly blue glow to contrast with their red Santa hats.  Then I took the gels off the flashes and increased the power so they would give me a giant wall of soft diffused light as my main light source for the shot with Dr. Hilton in the dentist’s chair.  I photographed everything using the Nikon D3 and 24-70mm f2.8 with an SB-900 on-camera in Commander Mode.  The two SB-800s were triggered with my trusty RadioPoppers. 

Even though I always carry plenty of umbrellas, soft boxes, and other light modifiers…sometimes it’s better to work with what you have in the environment around you!
