Jay P. Morgan: A Breakdown on LitePanel Reflectors

In this LiteBlog post, Jay P. Morgan reviews the basics of reflectors and demonstrates their effects on location.  This is a basic look at how reflectors work and the practical applications for each of the reflective fabrics.  For the beginning photographer, using a reflector is an easy way to start to modify light and learn where to place the light source in relationship to your subject.  Using reflectors and becoming good at placing them will teach you how to place strobes.  Good light placement is the same for both strobes and reflectors, but easier to see...

Jeff Stevensen: HDR - The Web’s Loudness War?

[Abandoned Tinsel Factory, Windsor Locks, Connecticut] Surely you’ve seen HDR photographs by now. HDR is an acronym for High Dynamic Range imaging. It’s a post-production technique in which one combines several different exposures of a subject into one final photo; the final photo has more detail in extreme highlights and extreme shadows than a conventional, single exposure can capture. HDR can be a lot of fun and initially exciting. Unfortunately, the most common “look” people are using with HDR is somewhere between surreal and cartoonish. Colors are screamingly over-saturated; dark “contrast clouds”...

Jay P. Morgan: Window Light Portraits for Stills and Video

    In this tutorial, we'll look at how to use window light as an effective light source to create portraits. Window light is a natural light source that can create beautiful light for portraits for both video and stills.  It's a constant and immediately available light source that is defined by the size of the window and the proximity of the subject to the window.  Large windows give softer light with brighter backgrounds and smaller windows give harder light with darker backgrounds.  The same principle applies to soft boxes.  Large boxes create soft...

Sooska: Bloody Princess

The following blog post (which we've attempted to translate into English via the help of Google Translate) from Romanian photographer Sooska takes a look into a recent photo shoot in which he used a newly acquired Photoflex TritonFlash.   But first, here's the video he produced for this shoot What causes things to happen?  Is it all random?  Personally, I don't think that things happen just by chance. Recently a friend of mine told me about a unique setting -- a house left neglected, but still in fairlystable condition -- and invited...

Ian Spanier: Shooting Truckers from ‘Shipping Wars’

Although I often shoot in the studio, more often I am on the road. In today's world of tighter budgets and increasing airline baggage fees, traveling with heavy portable battery packs and heads is less possible. And often, when traveling to remote locations, picking up rental equipment is just not going to happen. Solutions to problems like this are the key to survival in this ever-crowded industry. So when Photoflex released the TritonFlash portable strobes, I was very intrigued. I got a chance to test them on a personal project and definitely liked them. I was eager to get...

Dan Bailey: The Alaskan Studio

Yesterday we had more snow and single digit temperatures here in Anchorage, Alaska. And with calm winds during the past few days, all the snow that fell last week was still stuck to the all the trees. Basically, it’s winter wonderland up here in Alaska right now, especially since we’re about the only place in the country with any snow. Perfect conditions for outdoor photography! Of course, the lighting conditions of reduced winter sunlight and overcast skies aren’t exactly ideal for outside portraits, so I decided to bring along the TritonFlash™ to throw...

Blair Bunting: A Rugby Shoot in the Wee Hours

Using the TritonFlash™ I'm a commercial photographer who specializes in shooting portraits and cars, and I've been a huge fan of Photoflex® lighting modifiers for years. The rugged, textured images I am known for are due in large part to the quality of light that I get with the Photoflex® OctoDome® series, primarily the medium and small. For this shoot, I was eager to try out my first real experience with Photoflex® electronics in the TritonFlash™. I had read the specs and descriptions of what the product could do and I was...

Craig Pulsifer: The Barley Station

At first glance, I wasn’t sure if the guy in the tattered Harley jacket would flip me the bird or laugh like St. Nick. His sunken eyes shone bright with mischief beneath a hedge of jet-black eyebrows, themselves contrasted by a great silver mane of hair and beard that ringed his face. I was soon to discover the many faces of 63-year old Larry Barker. Advance Reconnaissance The gig was a combination product/portrait for the Barley Station Brewpub featuring a pint of their most popular pilsner, outtakes of which I hoped might also fit my portfolio. The...
