The Expendables 3 Promo Posters Feature Pointless Studio Lights that Do Nothing

Okay, it’s probably safe to say that ONLY photography nerds and photo websites will notice this, but for those of us who fit into those two categories the posters below sit somewhere between amusing and annoying.

You see, the Expendables 3 promo posters revealed recently feature studio lights in the frame because, well, they give the photos a certain ‘star studded’ feel. The problem is, the lights are frequently pointless and sometimes look like they’re lighting up something that is actually in shadow.

These issues were first pointed out by the folks at Fstoppers, and like them, we’re cool with putting lights in the frame if there’s a certain look you’re going for — in fact we like the work in general and think the shots turned out well. But some of the lights do look a bit pointless don’t you think?
