If it looks like Lindsay and her crew are having a great time, it’s because they were! Her assistants Tiffany and Jeff were thorough, accommodating and they worked their butts off. Even the heat of the Nashville summer didn’t slow them down, neither did direct sun. Jeff just picked up a diffuser and a couple Lastolite reflectors and followed Lindsay outside. The whole class was able to take some beautiful images using no additional lights at all, just diffusing and reflecting the light that was there.
This is our actual shooting location, nothing to write home about for sure.
The view from behind the model, harnessing the light with a reflector and directing back at her from a higher angle than you would typically see demonstrated. How does it look? You be the judge on the next couple images.
As you can see this is behind our store in an area that really isn’t very attractive. But, with the right lighting (after modification) and a beautiful model, you would never know it. Here are a few that I did some quick work on, there were lots more and I’m sure the class came away with even better images.
Imagenomic and a slight alteration in Lightroom that I learned from Lindsay!
Here is one that I shot in B&W inside my Nikon D700. I like the results right out of the camera, and just tweaked it a little to make it look the way I envisioned it when I was shooting.
This was an extremely productive class, and one of my personal favorites for learning additional lighting techniques! I would generally take out additional lights like the Quadra or some other unit. But, this was super effective and the results were stunning! Thanks again to Lindsay, her staff and Sigma for a great day of learning!
