Studio Lighting Classes
Last night I took a class from Bill Murphy, Digital Photography Lighting Basics Workshops. He had a mixed group, some folks who had lots of experience and some who were getting started. Bill has a nice instructional style, and while others were concentrating on the lighting, I was also picking up posing tips.
Here we able to slow down the shutter, and since the majority of the light was coming from the strobe allow the hair to fly out while stopping her motion. I was using back button focus, so the camera didn’t go crazy trying to find focus.
I was testing out some gear yesterday, but not in this shot. This is my reliable Nikon 24-70.
I agree with Thom Hogan, being willing to take classes leads to better photography more than just buying new gear. Of course buying new gear can lead you to new capabilities.
