Does anyone have a technique on achiving the old hollywood glamour lighting. How many lights and there placements? And, any other tips that would be useful.

Thanks
Henry

Okay just kidding......on the first image I used a 30x40 soft box camera left about 70degrees or so...and not really high {Fill} on the Main...I used a 10degree spot grid...about 45degrees camera right and a couple of feet above the models head...I pointed the main directly at the face...making it brighter than the rest of the image....Fill was metered 2 stops below main...


second Image...I used a Softbox for main camera right 45 degrees and high
a 48 brolly box for fill camera just camera left and just above models head..
Hair light barn doored camera left and behind model high and pointing down...
hope this helps!!

You may wanna check out this book...

Hollywood Portraits

It's a pretty cool book that examines old Hollywood photos and posits how they were most likely lit. I've got it and I've really enjoyed it.

I think both your images catch the flavor of the old Hollywood style, but from all of the diagrams I've seen of shots made by the likes of Hurrell would have used hot lights and no soft box. That tended to make them have sharper shadows that those you get with a softbox. I tend to like the softer look myself. What do you think?

if you look at the hurrel site, and click on the shots of his studio, you can see the lighting setups.

i would advise the best way to try to recreate old hollywood is to use similar tools, e.g., fresnel hot lights, simple backdrops, gobos, and to have the models hair, makeup, and styling similar to the era and to pose them in ways that also mimic glamour of the time.

There was a long thread on this same subject last year, and it has some additional information not yet included on this current thread. See:
