It’s time to update my self portrait. It looks like the beard is going to stay awhile, so here goes.
This portrait was shot with a three-light setup. The main light was a 24″x36″ softbox positioned camera left . There was a large white reflector just outside of the frame camera right. I also had two small reflector umbrellas on either side as hair/kicker lights. I used a radio remote to trigger the camera, the camera was on a 2-second delay self timer so I had time to press the trigger, drop it and then the camera would fire.
And just to prove that this was a true self-portrait and nobody else was taking the photo, check out this actual setup shot:
