So hey, it's been a while!
See? exactly what I have been thinking... except the glamourous part is not really that glamourous everyday but I do have my moments....
So back to the post..
Natural light vs Continuos light vs Strobes -When possible, it is great to be able to shoot in natural light. At my place I have a lonely window but sometimes I get to shoot on fancy locations, like the sample bellow thanks to Fitness Star Magazine.
Look at all those windows! I was giddy.
In the meantime I use continuous light mainly when I shoot. The kinda of light for video. It's soft enough and I can cheat a bit.
My awesome continuos lighting equipment from e-bay ($130) and my huge outdoor bulbs from the hardware store. The secret is to manually set your white balance in your camera. I have it at 2900K. Love the results. Of course you can get the ones that are all ready calibrated to 5500k for daylight. But I have a tendency to knock things over and those things are more expensive. I broke 4 bulbs before I gave up and looked for a cheaper alternative.
I like the options of moving them around and highlighting - and the flare- I am loving the flare.
Strobes - I use them more for pin up photography where I need more of a fashion look and a clean background with low ISO.
There you go- some nerdy photography talk for photographers and some recent samples for clients... SO BEHIND IN POSTING- Now I will make the time damn it. Weekly posts, even if it eats away on my pinterest time.... by the way follow me there http://pinterest.com/marlenjames/
