I could not have asked for a better morning for my Outdoor Lighting Workshop last Saturday at sunrise. We all met at the beach at 5AM, hauled all this gear to the shoot location, set it up and lit it up.
I demonstrated several lighting setups, using different gear and various techniques.
For the shot below, I used a single strobe with a 56″ Octabox, gelled with a 1/2 CTS (Color Temperature Straw) Notice how warm Madeline’s skin is? That’s what a colored gel will do.
For this epic shot of Charles, I used strobes. A 60″ octabox for the key light (camera right) and a stripbox for a rear accent light (camera left)
I also busted out some speedlights. The shot below was lit with a single Canon 600EX-RT shooting through a 46″ umbrella.
I also demonstrated non-flash lighting techniques. I used a 4×6 gold reflector for the shot below.
This shot was not lit at all. No flash. No reflector. Just natural light.
Thanks to all the models for waking up so early and being so fierce….and fun. From left to right: Sydney, Dana, Madeline, Charles, Sandra, Leigh Anne.
Thanks to everyone that attended. Next week’s blog post will showcase some of THEIR images from the workshop. Come back and check it out.
