Portrait with Profoto A1 and SoftBounce and Fujifilm X-T3 – Get The Shot

The search for aesthetics lies in the complex simplification of what we see, or what we want to hide. That’s what I want to share with you in these Get The Shot series. How to simplify your lighting setups, work differently, and allow you to create without asking yourself too many questions. This portrait below was shot with the Profoto A1 and SoftBounce diffuser, with my Fujifilm X-T3 and the AirTTL-F remote.

Gear Used

Approach & Result

As part of the approach, it’s pretty simple. I wanted to make an intimate portrait of my model of the day, and the place being a room in the basement, little lit by the light of day (rain and gray sky), and neon type cellar, I thought of the option of Profoto A1 and softbounce to put all this to my advantage.

You do not need complicated material to create, you have to start with an idea, a desire, and for the rest, there is Fujifilm and Profoto (wish on Visa / Mastercard desired). No tripod, my material in a small leather wallet, a series of images created simply.
