how many times have you walked on to a scene dark and overcast and wished you could make your subject jump off the background.
What an amazing rooftop fashion shoot this was with the brand new Profoto A2. Make no mistake, this small light has some serious punch.
Light and story. These are the two most important factors in making great portraits. Not your camera, and although I get asked a lot, it’s not the focal length.
Like many photographers, I’m always trying to find new ways to take my images to the next level.
Often, when photographers think of “flash photography” or alternate light sources, they think dramatic, but sometimes, all we need is some lighting to fill and even out the skin.
When I started on my journey into the world of photography, I didn’t know what to expect or where to start. All I knew is that I wanted to create amazing images and create incredible art.
There are many ways to take your portraits to another level. However, I have created a simple workflow that has helped me create the BANGERS that have turned a hobby into a full-blown career.
Why is it important to understand and test your gear? Well, because Murphy’s Law is the source of all pain when it comes to run & gun photo shoots. What do I mean by this? Simply, what can go wrong, will go wrong.
At ShutterFest 2021 in September, I had time to do something I usually don’t…and that’s shoot :) Union Station is packed with unique locations, so we grabbed Lauren Austin, one of our models in the Rent-A-Human model program and got to work.
Working with quick changing light sources (like the sun) can be tricky, but Profoto's OCF Softbox 3' Octa Saved the day.
