Here’s a nifty full figure portrait lighting setup provided by photographer Johan Marklund.

– “I’m have many assignments that has to be done quick with little or no time for planning in advance and sometimes even less time for the actual shot. In my bag I always carry 2-3 small flashguns and a radio transmitter. These often has a tendency to boost creativity instead of getting locked in to the correctness that big machines can create due to there physical dimension (where to place and the hell of replacing).

This shot with musical artist Martin Stenmarck is one of those shots. We had some minutes and the hotell was not to keen upon having their lobby turned into a studio. Small flash on tripod from an angle to the right of me and another small flash behind Martin from behind to put some shine on his bike and some rime on him did the job easy and good. Exisiting bulb light for the background.”
