Back to the studio


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.

This image was captured with the Talking Heads on the iMac. I shot into a Photogenic Eclipse 60″ Umbrella with a White Lightning 1600X strobe off to the left. I used a reflector on the right side. I like the way the hair turned out. Lots of post-processing in CS4 on this one.
