In my quest to branch out a bit from just doing live music photos and events, I’m currently doing a course in studio lighting at the Australian Centre for Photography.
It’s being taught by the awesome Josef Geranio, and covers all aspects of lighting a shot – daylight, tungsten, studio flash, off-camera strobe, torchlight, gels, gobos, softboxes, cycs, snoots, and all the other paraphernalia that goes with creating images. I’m about halfway through, and learning a lot.
This was my first assignment from a couple of weeks back, an exercise in using daylight in different ways. I employed the services of my friend Krista, who kindly agreed to dig out her wedding dress (yep) and run around Fox Studios with a bubble blower for me.
