How Was The Shot Made?


Lighting can be a tough concept to understand.  One of the best ways to test your knowledge, and learn how to light, is to study images created by other photographers and see their lighting methods.  Try to guess how this was lit and what type of lens was used.

After enough guesses, we will reveal how the shot was lit in detail, and who guessed correctly.  Guess where the lights were placed, how many lights were used, and what modifiers were used.  Also, what lens type was used (fisheye, wide, tele, standard length… etc.)   Please post your best guess in the comments below.  Good luck!
