Headshots with Chicago Model Kenneth Hill

Chicago Model Kenneth Kill is an amazing talent. He is one of the best posing models I have ever worked with and he can practically style himself on every shoot. I enjoyed working with him so much that I called him back twice!

I basically used every technique I commonly use in studio during the shoots so I’ll go over each set-up in this post.

Broncolor Siros 800S and Profoto D1 Flash

Broncolor Siros 800 S v Profoto D1 500 AIR Review

The first time I showed my old assistant my Profoto D1 Air 500 Monolights he remarked how sexy they were…. that’s all he kept saying… “these lights are so f&*king sexy!” I can only imagine his sophomoric reaction if he got his hands on the more attractive Broncolor Siros, which comes in multiple flavors from the battery powered 400ws and 800ws Siros L to the 400ws and 800ws Siros S.

I found window light nirvana with a Elinchrom Rotalux 74-Inches Octabox Light Bank on a Gravity Backdrop

Elinchrom vs Profoto: Why I Own 4 Octaboxes

If you were expecting a side-by-side head-to-head comparison of these modifiers, this review is not for you. Over the course of 10 or so years I have owned 6 different octaboxes made by Profoto, Elinchrom and Photoflex. I will discuss below why I changed horses midstream to arrive at where I am today and how I felt about using each modifier.
