JBL - I actually like the pose... but that's just me. With the background being as white as it is, you could strip it out entirely and replace it with pure white without any trouble. I'm not sure that would make the shot any better, but why not?
Flash Photography: Harder than I thought(31 posts) (9 voices)
Willis I guess your girlfriend gives you that "look" quite often and that's why your use to it :^)
*DON'T make me turn that computer off on you Willis! I said I need your help NOW!* or how about
*NUH UH!!! YOU DID NOT spend all night at that Deep Eddy Cabaret with all your dumb forum buddies AGAIN!!! WILLIS!!!*
Ha! The second one :)
Hey JBL? What's it cost to rent a studio + strobes (if you don't mind telling us)?
The cheapest rate is usually hourly with a two or three hour minimum. Well depending on the studio. Most give you access to basic set ups with the standard rate. Though I think jbl might of been using a school's studio? Then he probably just signed up and had an hour or so to "study".
*Don't you let that fool Niko into my house Willis. I'm not going to tell you again. He's a bad influence on you*
:^) Tell your girl I'm sure she's really a wonderful person Willis.
Yeah, I'm not familiar at all with flash photography, but maybe Joe McNally can help with that? He has a book called Hotshoe Diaries, maybe it'll be of help with you?
Granted, he owns like 12 SB600s among other things, but there may be insights that you can use. :D
Yes I have access to some studio like places at my school, but nothing with strobes, only regular cinema lighting, a nice black bg, a white one and a green screen area.. which is awesome. The lighting is obviously constant and pretty yellow.. far from ideal for photography. The thing is.. if I rent flashes and go there... even if I stay 12 hours (because it's free.. anyway I doubt that I can have more than 4 hours in a row at school) The rent of the lighting would cost more unless I chose to go with single flash + tripod + umbrella.. a kit that I could buy rather cheap... but to get that awesome lighting setup (that I misused) it would cost more than renting the studio itself..
By renting the studio I give my money to a nice guy with a small business rather than the biggest camera store in town. Also, it comes with nice windows, nice view, a corner for make up, a washroom, microwave, refrigerator, wifi, tripods, stool, cubes, etc.. there's even a plant that I could use as gobo like in that video lol..
Soooo, considering that I do not own any of these 1000$ flashes, huge softboxes and all the stuff, it's better for me to rent the studio. The place I go costs 30$/hour.
