When you go to an Irish pub, whether it’s on St. Patrick’s Day or not, you always hope that you’ll hear an old-timer with an Irish brogue telling a sensational story about buried treasure, leprechauns, luck and some mischief. Then you order your Guinness or Harp and sit back, you can just close your eyes for a minute and let him take you along wherever the story goes.
Suddenly, the aroma of delectable corned beef fills the room and you’re back to reality in the pub, ordering a flavorful sandwich that's stacked high with beef, cheese and just a hint of coarse mustard. This is truly Irish pub heaven.
We wanted to make the shot look like a pub, so we didn’t need a lot of light. We had a large soft source from the right as our main light and a point source from the right as well, to give the image just a touch of sunlight, like from a window. Then, we had another point light source from the back left, as if there was another window on the other side of the pub. We also used a soft light source from above to fill in some contrast.
