I put together a shoot with a Boxer as a personal project a couple of weeks back. I wanted to shoot quite close and really bring out the expression in the face aswell details in the gloves and fitness gear. I used two lighting setups. Aim as always is to keep things simple. Two setups's used, a beauty dish with no diffuser for a bit more contrast and a silver reflector to bring in some fill light into the shadows and a three light setup. Beauty dish for fill and two side soft boxes as key lights.
Apart from accessories, only other thing we added was some water sprayed on as fake sweat to help pull of the shot.
Here are the before and afters:
I also took advantage of the hoodie to shoot a dramatic looking portrait shot without sticking to the theme of boxing.
