Sheer light

2015_SS_Nash_135-Edit Can't go wrong with large windows, sheer, 4x8 white bounce cards, and Lauren on set! Also, with my favorite grip, Michelle, and MUA Stephanie! 2015_SS_Nash_179-Edit I was a bit too far back for this shot and captured a large clip of the white bounce reflector. It was an accident, but I liked it in there. It mimicked the other angels in the image and seem to set well right where it was. 2015_SS_Nash_104-Edit-Edit copy This is the second shoot I have had with Lauren. It's similar to the first, but this time we shot for more than 5 min. 🙂 There is a video of the first shoot here. I haven't played with sheer in a very long time. I decided to give it a try again for the sheer fun of it. Yes, I just did that. 2015_SS_Nash_165-Edit We only shot in this single corner with me only moving in two different positions. So, the more difficult part was on Lauren getting into different poses that I could tweak. 2015_SS_Nash_194-Edit2 Someday will we do a third shoot and will be ready to capture something totally different. Maybe go with low-key additive lighting? Possibly a little chiaroscuro? I say yes!   As always, here is the lighting setup.

Let the light in!

2015_IMG_1509-Edit copy2 I'm busy today doing too many things, but wanted to put this here. This is the most straight-forward lighting setup there can be. Step 1-  get out your camera Step 2- point it at the subject Step 3- take some pictures Step 4- add a color gradient or two in post to heighten interest Step 5- post on your blog Step 6- Now, go fix the washer...wait...that's what *I* have to do right now. Later! 😀
