We wanted to create a medieval fantasy look, and to achieve this was actually quite fun. We used clothing around the house and a few different props to bring the characters to life.
A 26 inch beauty dish to the left of the camera, about a foot away from the subjects face on a 45 degree angle. Parallel at half power.
We grabbed knitted clothing, leather belts, faux fur from winter jackets and my sword from lord of the rings to create the scene.
I was really pleased with the results.
