How Lens Focal Length Shapes the Face & Controls Perspective: A Lighting Tutorial! By Jay P. Morgan

The lens or Focal length of the lens you choose has a profound impact on the image. It effects the perspective, background, and features of the subject. Everyone should understand what the different focal lengths do to the human face and how they change the background. Why do you choose a 135 mm lens to shoot a head shot of a beautiful woman but use a 24mm to shoot a clown? Keeping the head the same size in the frame and changing the focal length of the lens, I shot a series of images that demonstrate how focal length effects the...

Lighting Breakdown! OctoDomes Ping Pong and Fire at the Beach

We had the opportunity to shoot promotional materials of Cui Baoqun, a national Chinese champion ping-pong player, for a television show called King Pong. He is incredible to watch play and a very nice guy. We shot at a Malibu beach location and applied, to this shoot, some of the information that we learned about Octodomes in our last lesson. We needed both Video for the promo reel and some stills for the advertising pieces. The one thing you can be certain about on location is wind, and wind we got! It was terrible at first, and we could not...

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...

High-Key Portraiture. A brief overview.

This blog describes the main elements that comprise high-key portraiture. We’ll cover low-key lighting in a future blog. The terms High-Key and Low-Key have been used (and misused) by photographers for decades. The differences between the two styles are obvious when they are placed side-by-side, as in the two shots below of jazz pianist Preston Brahm. The photo on the left has many of traditional elements that bring the shot into the category of high-key. We describe those at length below. The low-key photo on the right is the opposite of high key in many respects: Dark background,...
