AlienBees ABR 800 Ring Flash

Starting to get used to the ring flash. It’s really fun to use and gives interesting lighting. I love the halo effect. The trick is to stop the lens down as you move toward the subject and open it up as you move away. This is because you are shooting in manual and the flash source moves with you changing the exposure. It’s not that hard to get used to and it becomes quite intuitive. Very little Photoshop  post -processing. I’m finding as my lighting gets more refined the Photoshop required is minimal.

Back to the studio

Emily

Now that I’ve secured studio space I’ll be getting back to work on my fashion portfolio. I’ll update the blog with some of the technical information as I go.

I’ll be using the Canon 5D Mark 2 for all of the images. I do quite a bit of Photoshop post -processing  so I will incorporate this in the blogs.

I’ve mentioned this before, but just about everything I do in Photoshop can be learned at Lynda .com.

As far as lighting goes I’ll be staying with one strobe (and use a reflector when necessary). The studio has a boom stand so I’ll be able to get some interesting light effects.

So the light will be a single White Lightning 1600X . I’ll  use a translucent white shoot-through umbrella for the beauty shots and  a Photogenic 60″ Eclipse Plus Umbrella for most of the fashion shots.
