Amybeth is a good friend of AerialPixls and when she needed a new headshot image at the last minute! We popped up the LED lighting that was in the video bag and popped up a 6ft gray backdrop behind.
I am a big fan of Rotolights who make LED lighting. We use the RL48 interview kit on a lot of our video work but as you can see from the BTS image above they can be used effectively for a headshot portrait as well. The only downside is that they are not the most powerful light in the world, but can easily be used at ISO800 to great effect. The rim light was provided by a more powerful but inexpensive LED unit I bought from Amazon.
