Setup a “a single light stand” … in the hotel? …One particular Light Photography

24 – Now why doing it on the floor when hotels are usually known for their comfortable king-sized double beds? Because this time, we wanted the photographs to look like studio photos. For our one light photography we manufactured a black floor by covering the floor with the black covers of my two collapsible reflectors. This gave us nearly 4 square meters of black ground. Sounds too small? Well, then let’s use the American way of saying it Nearly 45 square feet of black floor – sounds much better ­čÖé As you might guess, in order to light such a spacious “arena” one speedlight… is plenty – an easy one light photography setup.

    hi there´╗┐ ­čÖé is there a speedlight used “on camera” here? or its only the one behind the model?

  12. blucinemafilms

    Very informative and cool use of on camera´╗┐ flash.

  13. asphaltoll

    I expect the infrared´╗┐ beam to pass through the umbrella (only in the reverse direction of the flash light) in order for the flash on the camera to control the “stage” flash

  14. ChaosConRad

    was your´╗┐ on camera flash firing? or was it just controlling the 580 ?

    Oh. And I´╗┐ miss your silk jacket.

    Thank you thank you. The note about having two drops is important and so not planned well because I am often so focused on the foreground details and don’t really know how´╗┐ to create a background trail into the dark. A model does not have to be spot centered every time–what a concept.

    Great tip! I’m going to´╗┐ try this one out fairly soon as it would really suit a gothic setting as well. ­čÖé Thanks Michael.

  23. FreePhotographyTips

    sure, but what would be a specific question you would like to have answered in the vid? Can you post the question somewhere on my blog SmokingStrobes? Then I am quite sure I’ll pick it´╗┐ up in a video
