    Business Headshots, confined space to shoot in

    This will be my only my second job for business Headshots. New challenge. I must shoot 5 hi-profile executives. They are giving me a very confined space. A small office conference room 11'x25' approximately. But there is a conference table in the middle that cannot be moved out of the way. I'm exploring the possibilities of what I can do and what to avoid. ?


    I have a medium and a large softboxes and several umbrellas. Two strobes and two speedlights. But i could also rent equipment. They want one of the backdrops to be white, But I only have about a foot or two from the subject to the background. I'm worry about shadow and the white not going fully white if unable to put a light behind subject. Also no much clearance to set hair kicker lights above subject.


    Any advice and recommendations ?

    Beauty dish is an ultimate space saver. Did this for a local business with a beauty dish and a narrow roll of white paper in my daughter's bedroom, no other lighting. With a little more room I would have wanted a larger background and some light on it.

    Put the subject near the corner, soft box fill on subject. Underexpose a speedlight at a shallow angle on one wall facing the other in the corner for fill.

    Good example here... read pt.1 and pt.2
