The inspiration for the shot came from The Rolling Stones ‘Beggars Banquet’. - Paul Harries
How it was shot:
The main shot is lit with a Bowens 500 pro with a one metre strip soft box on a high stand. A Bowens head and umbrella is positioned on the floor bottom right to add fill.
The back left has a Beauty dish with a honey comb grid to add key backlight. The final light is a head on its lowest power to add lumination to the fire place.
My only cheat was adding the flames to the candles in post-production.
