One Light Classic Studio Portraits On Location
Last year I ran this tutorial on one light portraits and showed you how easy it was to take some really great studio portraits with only one light and a large umbrella. The umbrella I used at the time was a large umbrella prototype I was working on the development with Westcott. Folks have been emailing and calling asking when that umbrella was going to be available. Well, I've got more good news for you. Westcott's 84" parabolic umbrella is shipping right now. You can pick it up over at B&H right here.
I have to admit, I like this very large umbrella. I use it for diffusing the sun outdoors and shooting with it in the studio as shown in today's tutorial. Sure, other larger umbrellas will work. I just prefer the 84" monster. The video discusses all aspects of using a large umbrella when shooting classic studio portraits. Why not hit the PLAY button below and enjoy the show.
Hey gang, that's it for me today. I hope for all those that have been waiting you take advantage of the LumaPix for MAC now available.
I still have lots on my plate before we leave for NYC early tomorrow morning. I suspect the post will go up after we get settled into our hotel in the afternoon. I know the posting schedule has been crazy lately, but so has been my life ;~) Like they say, too much to do and too little time.
Have a great rest of the day and I'll see you from the Big Apple tomorrow.
See ya' then everybody, David
