    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.

    Hard Light

    Hard light—by which I mean a nondiffused, specular, direct light—is thought of as a big no-no by a lot of shooters. But to me, it’s one of the coolest and best types of light, one that makes your work pop and stand out from the crowd.

    For the most part, whenever I hear shooters talk about how to light people, around 95 percent of the conversations are about how to create soft, diffused light. Everyone wants the biggest softbox, they want the deepest octa or they want a set of continuous light to get that pretty, diffused window-light look.

    Creative Color

    Color balance can be a thorn in any photographer’s side. When you are first learning about light, there are so many variables in regards to the shape and exposure of a light source. Having to learn about the color of a light source can be overwhelming.

    Learning about color balance is necessary for any wedding photographer because we often encounter venues with ambient lighting that differs from the color of our flash. This is referred to as “corrective color balancing,” a topic that deserves an article in itself. Today I am going to show you how to use creative color balancing to make amazing and one-of-a-kind portraits for your clients.
