Alastair, the hubster, celebrated a special birthday today and his main gift was some Bose noise cancelling headphones.
It gave me the idea to shoot him with bright lights but dark shadows, to create a high contrast black and white shot using the headphones as a prop.
I used my Manfrotto Lykos LED BiColour
Light, which I could angle as needed and choose a light shade between daylight and tungsten. This light ensured there was no glare and allowed me to control exactly how much light was used.
It was a very quick shoot, but a fun keepsake for his birthday treat.
