In the training, directed by Madonna and David Nicholson, posing and lighting was a major part of the afternoon session. Madonna suggested we carry a couple of black pieces of cloth to serve as a backdrop and to wrap around the mother. Lighting was one light with an umbrella. A reflector was used when more fill light was needed. The light stand they used was a a stand that collapsed when picked up and legs snapped back when the stand was placed in position. They used a bracket that held the Pocket Wizard and the Speedlight.
Practice, practice, practice, thinking about a monolight instead of my Speedlight- so I can see the light BEFORE I press the shutter.
