Business in Action | Manufacturing photography
With the goal of illustrating the focused stare of a machine operator in a manufacturing plant, this photo was made possible with a three-light setup using gelled Speedlight flash units.
A red gelled Speedlight was focused on the machinery and was angled straight down to avoid washing light on to the worker. The main light comes from a Speedlight zoomed to 200mm, which tightly focused the lighting on the face of the workers. The third Speedlight strobe was gelled blue to illuminate the background in an effort to separate the worker from the area behind him.
Artistically applied colored lights helps corporate photographers create images that might otherwise be monotone or dull. Graphic designers and corporate marketers have ample space to drop text and headlines to create advertisements, brochures, sales sheets or other marketing and sales collateral.
