Adventures in Lighting

16 Feb

So today I dragged a couple bags of stuff over to McMaster Lighting studio. In my mind I saw all kinds of amazing photos playing out in my mind. It didn’t take long at all to realize I was out of my league. Being the resourceful girl that I am, I recruited my friend. He en-turn enlisted Gordon Humphries, who single-handedly set up an amazing display for me.

I photographed at a couple different settings and photographed a couple things.

Overall…the lighting studio was way over my head. I need a major crash course in it.

I enjoy incorporating light into all my photos, particularly rich sunlight.

But as far as commercial lighting goes…I have a lot to learn. I really love these pictures:

Old Hollywood lighting is my favorite! Butterfly lighting I believe its called.

I also adore party shots/ nightlife shots:

And then there is the matter of food photography, which I adore!

I hope to learn how to create these shots. I just need the chance/time to learn!
