After doing a critique for Gary’s YouTube channel a few weeks ago, we decided to record one for mine, which I will post publicly next week.
This video will help you learn essential techniques with basic equipment to create and control artificial light, so that you don’t have to worry about the weather or the time of day.
Soft boxes, parabolic modifiers and umbrella shootout! Which modifier for perfect portrait lighting?
Over the last 20 or so years, I have acquired about 20 different softboxes, but I have never actually sat down and tested them out in the studio, one at at a time, to determine the quality of light produced by each modifier when shooting portraits.
Watch as I unbox my new Billingham 445 (https://amzn.to/32igLwq) camera bag and move out of my old Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 2.0 (https://amzn.to/2QrsweN) messenger bag.
Part of making a refined image in the studio is lighting your subject to preserve details in their hair or operate them from the background. In today’s video, I will teach you everything you need to know about hair lights. Including which modifiers to use, where and how to mount them plus how bright your lights should be.
