I had a wedding reception to photograph friday night so I only did studio stuff for the charity shoot on friday.
In fact I only took pictures of 3 people.
That is in stark contrast to the 10 sessions I did yesterday (saturday) and I’ll be recapping later today.
As you can tell I experimented even more with the background lighting.
I tried mixing colors… and worked harder to make sure the light didn’t bleed onto the subject.
I was using speedlights an SB-900 on each side of the background and since they don’t recharge super fast if I shot fast enough I could get several different lighting situations.
One with both background lights going off… one with one, one with the other and then one with neither. I thought that was pretty fun.
It was also matching tones to what they were wearing… or letting the model pick their own colors.
Jumping pictures or wide width shots were hard on a small little background… but we made it work.
I also played more on the white seamless, but I need to work a bit harder on the lighting.
And I also need to use the Black seamless one of these days.
This girl is a BYU swimmer and has wanted to model some… glad to help out. She was lots of fun and did well.
And this was her roommate along for the ride… who obviously gets pictures too!
