Jay P. Morgan: Mixing HMI and LED Lights

Recently, Jay P. Morgan and The Slanted Lens crew produced a vintage train station shoot at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, California. Since they were shooting both stills and video, they needed to use continuous lights and Jay P. decided to use a mix of HMI and NorthStar™ Lite LED (both daylight-balanced).     For this The Slanted Lens piece, we shot out at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, California. They generously gave us access to their steam train and World War II passenger cars. We used this setting to look at the process of...

Jay P. Morgan: Shooting Chrome on Location

Recently, We were out on location in downtown Los Angeles shooting for Pilot Freight Services. We shot a composite image that required us to shoot chrome on location. The shot was for a print ad that Pilot would run in consumer magazines. We blocked off a lane on Hope Street in Los Angeles that looks into the downtown area so that we could shoot our truck in the right position to match the comp. The image consisted of four parts that needed to be shot separately, including a chrome mirror on the Pilot Freight truck. Shooting chrome is a reflection...

Jay P. Morgan: The Basics of a One Light Setup

In this Slanted Lens video, Jay P. Morgan demonstrates the basic principles and techniques for lighting dynamic indoor portraits. But rather than shooting stills, Jay P. shot video with the Canon 1DC and pulled high resolution still frames for the footage afterward. This meant, of course, that he needed to use continuous soft  lighting, as opposed to strobes. And to give that lighting an elegant look, he oped for Photoflex modifers, naturally.             To learn more about the equipment used in this shoot, check out the links below:   SilverDome® nxt: medium FirstStudio 3...

Jay P. Morgan: Creating Bokeh

For this lesson, photographer Jay P. Morgan was in New York City shooting in Times Square. He wanted to explore shooting bokeh with all the intense lighting of Times Square. The term "bokeh" is Japanese and means "blur" or "haze". Here, Morgan takes a look at different lenses and aperture settings to see how they create this cinematic look. Different lenses create different patterns and you'll see how a 200mm lens compares to that of a 50mm lens.   Bokeh Tests Before heading out to Times Square, Morgan first did some bokeh tests indoors with Christmas lights. With Christmas...

Jay P. Morgan: Warrior Princess at Vasquez Rocks

  Recently, we had a couple of shoots out at Vasquez Rocks, just outside of Los Angeles. The final shoot was of our model, Gabrielle Tuite, dressed as a warrior princess. We suspended her on a rig so that she could position her feet in a variety of ways that would not be possible otherwise. We also used an air canon to create a layer of smoke behind Gabrielle. (We had to use an air canon rather than a Rosco smoker because Vasquez Rocks does not allow smoke machines. It's a bit of an outdated rule because the new...

Jay P. Morgan: Balancing Strobes with a Setting Sun

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but every one of us who buys a book spends a few seconds looking at the title and the cover. Not only that, publishers know that readers also flip the book over and look at the picture of the author. That’s why authors and publishers view the author photo as a marketing opportunity. The author photo is just another opportunity to tell a story. An author who provides a simple portrait is telling a story, but it’s probably something like, “There is a...

Jay P. Morgan: Using Continuous Light and Strobes Together

Pro Showcase photographer Jay P. Morgan demonstrates how to mix different light sources for a stylized effect.     In this post, you'll see how I used strobes and a continuous light source together on set to create an interesting portrait.  I wanted to take some wonderful images of Rebecca Grant on a small set that represented a back stage make-up area.  To accomplish this, I used a combination of continuous lights and strobes.  I wanted to create a shaft of light in the image for dramatic effect.  A shaft of light cannot be seen...
