A day in the Studio:
We spent the day in the studio working with lots of different lighting setups, including soft boxes, a beauty dish, grids and different backdrops.

We had to figure out how bright one light would be to another by using the power output of the bulb, and the setting we had the flash on, such as 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2.

Multiplying fractions is not our strong point, but we got it figured out by the end of the day.

We also tried a bunch of different setups just so that we could compare between them and learn from doing, rather than only talking about it, but never seeing the results.

We used the lights with the diffusers, but we also used reflectors and other light modifiers to direct the studio lights and change the outcome to what we wanted. With the studio, there are always a lot of different options for getting the light the way you want it because you are in complete control of the light- but the key is to do whatever is fastest so you can get the most done in the least amount of time.

We also had a little fun – not everything we do is work. This is us trying to be the “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” monkeys.
