Jazzing Up a Boring Computer Portrait

SuperDave Tejada is back, this time showing you how to pump up a typical, boring person-at-computer shoot using a couple of SB's. Dave is shooting corporate here, which means that (a) he can direct people all he wants, and (b) he makes lots more money than you do.

Stuff to watch for:

1. He gets good contrast and fill from two opposing light sources - left and right.
2. He has the hard-vs-soft thing going, too. Hard camera left vs soft camera right.
3. He also uses a warm-vs-cool scheme, working a CTO against a CTB for good internal separation.

You can see the final pic here.

p.s. For the viewers in the UK, "fanny" means something different over here.
