We had fun with the flash and smoke as you can see.
I’ve been working with LUTs for a while now in Lightroom. I always archive my shots in a standard colour form as 16 bit tiffs but here you can see some jpeg outpt with slightly altered looks.
I love the way that the smoke adds depth to the shot. I was lucky with the sunlight for the shots of Kate. I used a Scatterflash on all the ‘lit’ shots in this blog post.
The workshops went really well and the format was spot on. I’m thinking of running some more workshops at this north Belgian location in 2021 so if you are interested please comment below and I’ll ask Piet to be in touch when he arranges the next sessions. Please comment or ask me questions below and I’ll reply in person.
I used a really simple lighting rig for these shots. Nothing too pricy and kit that is easy to use. I taught how to balance ambient light with flash, retaining shadow and highlight detail yet keeping the pictures punchy. If you like this style then connect with me here and I’ll keep you in the loop of upcoming workshops and tours.
