How to Capture Dramatic Senior Sports Portraits with Only One Light

Talented sports photographer and Westcott Top Pro Matt Hernandez takes viewers behind the scenes of a dramatic senior portrait photo shoot at sunset with the Zeppelin Deep Parabolic softbox and the Zeppelin Mounting Arm.

Matt choose to shoot this high school football player at dusk, allowing him to capture a beautiful sky in the background of these portraits. Shooting later in the day also allows photographers to create more dramatic lighting.

By utilizing the Zeppelin’s controlled light output, Matt is able to precisely illuminate his subject without spilling light onto the field. To learn more about the Zeppelin Deep Parabolic, please visit
