Technique Tuesday: “I’ve Seen The Light”
Hey gang, I’m pretty stoked about this tutorial today. It’s the first one I’ve put together completely with my Canon 5D Mark II. Here is why I’m fired up. The entire tutorial gives the viewer and exact “camera eye” view of the shot. You see what I see in the camera as I look for the light and compose the image.
There were just a few hic-cups during the shoot; noisy kids coming out of the elevator where I was doing the demo, my reference to a triangular shadow on the camera side of the face when I meant triangular patch of light, and the hotel guard coming by on his Segue just as I was doing the wrap up – notice my quick glance to the left as I smile my way to the end of the video.
Here is the back-story on this episode -
In this episode of Technique Tuesday I want to walk you through a short lesson in how to find the direction of light in a natural light situation -- say for example, outdoors. I think this is one of the hardest things for photographers to learn. You would think it would be a given but, I can remember years ago when my instructors were trying to teach me how to do it and, I didn't find it that easy. I'm just covering the tip of the iceberg today but I hope it gives you some insights on how to improve your natural light photography. Anyway, hit the PLAY button below and enjoy the show.
This was my first try but I have to say, I love the possibilities – more to come for sure – enjoy!
That’s it for me today – more book writing on my plate and then we head back to Cincy bright and early tomorrow. I’ll see everybody then for another episode of Analysis Of A Wedding – Part 6 – “Shooting the Room.”
See ya’ then. -David
