A techniques page illustrating the lighting set-up for a full length hair shoot. To accompany that there is also a short 'behind the scenes' video documenting some of the elements and people involved on the day.
A brief discussion on the rise of the HDR technique and how in one form or another its been around since the dawn of photography. Also an explanation on exactly how I achieve the look and feel of a HDR image without overdoing it
A technique page highlighting some of the problems you may face when having to shoot with fluorescent lights, especially if you mix them with flash. Also mentioned is the image as it was originally inspired.
An explanation of the importance of working together as a team in photo shoots and the importance of knowing who the best person is for any given role in any given situation.
A technique page that briefly talks about shooting around water and some points on the best way to capture fast moving objects like falling water droplets.
A brief piece on the key differences between 'objective' and 'subjective' lighting and how the areas of illumination on different surfaces can help to 'sculpt' a more dramatic representation of our subjects.
A technique page showing a very quick and easy way to take dramatically lit photos using as few as one light. A shot commonly used in still-life pictures where a very similar photo utilises anywhere up to six lights.
A piece on constructing an image, and how we as photographers make decisions on how to display the scene in front of us, whether it is a conscious one or not.
A technique page illustrating how to set up a shallow depth of field shot in a controlled environment. This technique shows how shooting through highlighted objects very close to the lens can create very dramatic and intentional bokeh.
The preface for what I aim to achieve over the coming pages and a brief insight into what I see happening in today's photography as we traverse the digital era of the throw-away image.
