My son wanted to have sporty portrait. I had read Scott Kelby’s “Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It” (Amazon) earlier and remembered that it has a setup (chapter 6) that could be used as a starting point for this. I don’t have all the gear that was used in the original setup so I used speedlights instead of studio strobes etc. I also ended adding background texture in photoshop which is a photo of galvanized steel plate colorized green. Another example that you should also remember to photograph interesting looking textures. You never know when you will need those.
