Michael Grecco on Sun, Bounced Sun and Flash

Michael Grecco, working in LA for California Sunbounce, plays with a combo of strobe and bounced sun. It's neat to see how Grecco is shading his model from the sun, then overpowering the sun with a striplight and then reflecting some sun back into the shadow side for separation. A little commercialish, but worth a few minutes to watch.

If you are looking for much more inspiration and BTS check out Grecco's excellent lighting book, Lighting and the Dramatic Portrait.
