You never know how things go, right? My friend Deb at Corey Glass in Hastings has been doing my framing for 15 years. She’s always got a good sense of color and dimension when it comes to hanging something on the wall, probably because she’s a really good painter. She has done of couple of paintings of Lauren, her stepdaughter, over the years that are really beautiful, so I mentioned to her that hey, you know, if Lauren’s around, maybe she could come and pose for the workshops? Lucky us. The scene on the dilapidated sofa is created by one Ranger battery unit, literally placed up high on a bridge outside the building, and being driven by a skyport radio trigger. It has a half CTO on it, hence the warm feel. Lauren looks up towards the light, and we were done.
For Bethany, we did an exercise in controlling exposure inside and outside with EV at the camera, and TTL control of SB900 units. Never left the camera for this. Just placed the lights, and we were able to wrangle the scene by simply plus-ing and minus-ing the amounts of flash relative to the ambient light level.
So much for the window. Down at the loading dock, Phil, who’s got one of the great faces of all time, came in and posed up against a garage door. We simply blasted one light at him from about 60 or so feet away. Came through plastic draping, and had nice, natural fall off. Then we flipped it up and had Phil menacing Kyra. One light in the doorway…more tk…..
