I normally shoot with that big ball of light in the sky as my light source. I search out glorious natural light when I am on a shoot and I am deathly afraid of off camera lighting. I even bought a book on lighting to get over my fear of the unknown, but I haven’t even looked at it. I think I bought it over 6 month ago. When the opportunity came up to shoot with some local photographers and play with lights and off camera flash I couldn’t help but be a little nervous. But, there is no better time than the present, right? So, I joined them, and I am so glad that I did. Gorgeous models, a cool loft space and meeting new people who share my passion for the camera. I learned that I have A LOT to learn, but it was fun to play. I am feeling a little more confident about using lights, I guess it is time to clear the dust off my lighting book and play some more.
Here a few of the shots.
