This is something we have been wanting to do for quite some time now.... Shoot an entire wedding in black and white. We shot this entire film in Monochrome within the camera. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect couple to let us capture their wedding in black and white. This is just a short teaser of whats to come.
we are one week closer to the launch of SMAPP and as our update of the week we wanted to share a tutorial on interview lighting.
there are so many different ways you can light an interview and while story is always important, interviews more than anything else often come with the constraints of time, space, and gear. traveling for A Game of Honor we had to be able to light an interview with whatever we could fit into one 70lb suitcase (which inspired a whole separate tutorial on what's in that suitcase). if you've done your share of interviews, you'll be all too familiar with showing up and having a room that would be a tight fit just to hold all of your gear, let alone setup and interview in it. with almost every interview we feel like we could use one more stinger, one more light, an extra five minutes to tweak the setup, or an extra 5' feet to reposition the talent and camera. however, through working within these constraints we can learn to do much more with much less. half the tricks we know about lighting have all come from having to figure something out while on set, and having to do so quickly. the more we understand light, how it works and how we can work with it, the more we can make the most of whatever time, gear, and space we might find ourselves in.
we hope you enjoy our first lighting tutorial on basic interview lighting. our next lighting tutorial we will be sharing shortly will show how we light the same scene three different ways to create different moods.
If you thought mirrorless cameras were simply for travel and party snapshots, think again. We’re going to show you how to get truly professional results with this new class of cameras. The surprise (that is no surprise) is that great photographs are created with great light and great cameras, especially mirrorless!
Join host Joe Brady during this studio portrait shoot as he shares an essential group of techniques and lighting styles you can use to create your own beautiful portraits.
What you will learn:
In this free webinar, we’ll cover high key, low key, posing, camera and light position in 1, 2 and 3-light setups for maximum beauty with minimum gear.
Taking your flash off your camera is the first step in making “pictures” become “portraits”. PocketWizard radio triggers are the invisible, dependable link between your camera and your flashes, and featured in this webinar as a key tool for those who want to be a professional photographer.
Controlling light is a skill you can use to distinguish your photography from that of others vying for the same business. A little knowledge about light goes a long, long way, and using a Sekonic light meter gives you a creative edge.
From start to finish, you will learn how to control and choose light for your subject to create beauty, drama, shape and dimension.
Join Joe Brady as he shows you how to change how you shoot with mirrorless – from “taking” photos to “making” portraits.
