I had a quick shoot in New York City last week with the young star from the UK. He debuted his album in America just a few days ago. This setup was pretty simple. The backdrop is real and not a drop-in. Only had a total of 15 minutes or so for a 3 setups, but I am used to moving fast Believe it or not, the shot above does not have a lot of post production on it at all.
I ended up using 4 flashes and a single reflector for fill light. Shot this with my Phase One 645DF+ IQ140 camera. See the lighting diagram below.
