Hollywood Lights Workshop

This is going to be a very brief description since it’s way past my bed time considering that I will be going to Sweden tomorrow and need all the sleep I can get right now, but I wanted to make this post before I leave since it’s long overdue. I had a chance to participate in my first ever photography workshop a few weeks ago and I’ve been slowly working on the images from that workshop in-between all the other photo editing I’ve had to do. I still have a bunch of images waiting to be done from the workshop, but some of my favorites are below. It was pretty darn awesome to work in a “real” studio (as opposed to my guestroom conversion studio in my house) with real models under the guidance of somebody who definitely know what he is doing. Interestingly, the whole lighting set-up part was not the main thing I learned at the workshop. Instead, it was posing and working with models in general that was the most valuable lesson I learned that day.

These are the four images I’ve had a chance to complete so far, starting with my absolute favorite:

(85mm, ISO 100, f/4.5, 1/125 sec + three monolight set-up)

Hollywood Lights 2

(85mm, ISO 400, f/3.5, 1/100 sec + three fluorescent continuous light set-up)

Hollywood Lights 3

(85mm, ISO 400, f/3.5, 1/125 sec + three fluorescent continuous light and a reflector set-up)

Hollywood Lights 4

And finally an image that was not part of the workshop, but that I snapped at the very end after asking the model to just kind of goof off.

(85mm, ISO 100, f/5, 1/125 sec + three monolight set-up)
