Continuous 3 Light Setup and the Flying Cape Effect

On this video professional photographer Jay P. Morgan from the Slanted Lens, takes a look at lighting for a superhero shot using a simple set, smoke and cookaloris or cookie to create a glow behind the subject.

Morgan also examines 3 different types of Rosco smokes and looks how each one acts differently (more dense, longer lasting etc.). Finally Morgan demonstrates how to perform a simple but pretty nifty trick with a cape in video.
