I’ve been shooting so much lately that I’ve barely had time to write up my shoots on the blog. I’ll be posting up a selection of images from the four recent Bristol workshops throughout the week.
Dappled sunlight on a blue wall gave us a great start to the shoot. The sunlight was going through a young tree and a glass canopy.
I love to keep things simple. A patch of sun reflected from an office window was all I needed for this minimalist shot. I've never seen the same reflection in the same place twice so I keep an eye out for this kind of light on clear sky days.
Simple 2 point lighting created with a Speedlight on a stand as a key light and the sun as a back light. Even though I shoot using the same locations on a weekly basis I always like to vary the shots. That way, it is easy to build a big repertoire of shots that work.
A change of viewpoint adds a tension to the picture. Charlene's eyes are bang in the center of the shot and I held the camera over my head to capture this frame.
Water features like this are great for pictures. When the sun is out it can be hard to get the shot you want. I like to shoot moving water on fairly slow shutter speeds but at minimum ISO and aperture I was still at 1/125th second.
The location for this high key shot is a dark grey dingy space. The lighting is all natural and the kick light makes the shot.
I love shooting graffiti and I used my 2 point 'key and kick' lighting system here for this shot. 2 Speedlights on stands were controlled by an ST-E2 (or an SU-800 for the Nikon shooters).
I’ve selected these shots to show a variation on a theme seen in earlier posts. Please feel free to comment in the usual way.
