    How I got the shot

    Every month we will explore the cover shot in-depth to dissect how we got the shot.

    It gives me an opportunity to showcase the behind-the-scenes like never before. There are so many images we look at that make us wonder about the “how.” How did they make that shot? Sometimes it’s the smallest of details that can spark our imagination. I hope that by sharing the details of the shoot, we can spark some new ideas and creativity for you as an artist.

    With your flash in the camera’s hot shoe, you’re locked into flat, one-dimensional lighting. This is because when it’s fired, the beam of light from your speedlight travels along exactly the same axis as the camera’s lens, mirror and sensor.
