Yeah, yeah, I know, the idea behind having a blog is that you go out there and write stuff. Well I’m finally back. I’ve been spending a lot of time on a new lighting technique using new lights and a new camera.
I’m not an equipment freak, so contrary to the opinion of some of those close to me, I am not constantly out there buying the latest and greatest in new equipment. However, in this digital age, there are some kinds of photography that I really wanted to take to another level and my new camera has allowed me to do that. The new lighting is really fun. I have been interested in doing the old “Hollywood” lighting for a long time. These new lights really allow me let my clients “shine” – pun intended. It is so fun creating these dramatic looks yet they have a beautiful soft quality about them that I have always been fascinated with. Here are a couple examples that I hope you enjoy as much as I do. I plan on experimenting with these lights and two people in the image next.
