How This Was Lit: Thomas Ingersoll Shows Us His 3 Light Beauty Setup

Welcome to the first post in this series! I'll be sharing a true BTS look at how certain photos were lit! Let's start with this shot by Thomas Ingersoll because he is LIT AF (sorry not sorry).

Thomas writes:

This was a 3 light set up, Key light was a Profoto D2 in a Profoto 3 foot octo camera left, rim light was a Profoto B1X in a Large Profoto deep white umbrella with diffusion on camera left, and fill was a Profoto B1X in a 6x6' scrim directly behind me.
