The end of the year draws near and I have so much I want get finished (including 6 or 7 blog entries). Nina was in the studio a few weeks ago for a “Light Blaster” shoot as I had a few more ideas to test out.
This shoot posed a whole new range of problems….. Miss Alabaster saw a photo of me taken with a smart-phone that had one of those retro style camera apps, e.g “Hipstermatic”, “Retro-camera” etc. And wanted to do a shoot where her styling fitted to an 80’s look and the final images looked like they were faded old photos.
Last Friday was “Friday night shoot” time again. This time it was a starter course for first time studio users starting from the ground up covering all the basics including trigger, sync speed and different light formers.
This weeks Monday night shoot was again something totally different to the last few weeks. This week 2 models from Manigoo Models in Mannheim were out and about with me and Philip. Originally we were going to head up to Turmburg for a few sunset photos but light and weather conditions just weren’t in our favour. So we headed into a small underpass near the studio and had some fun with a strobist style shoot.
Here are a few things I have noticed about using the Light Blaster over the last week of playing around with it. If you have any other recommendation/ideas please let me know.
Light Blaster turns your system flash into a portable slide projector allowing you to project slide images onto or behind your subject. In consideration of the vast amount of existing slides, the potential of Light Blaster is infinite.
The Light blaster is a portable adapter that allows you project 35mm slides using your system flash. A few years ago I remember seeing something similar and thought it was a fun idea (more about that latter). Recently I saw it in the catalogue from Enjoy Your Camera and had to try it out.
This was my first real shoot with the light blaster, I have tested it a bit over the last week but wait to blog any thing until I had really put it through good test.
I have shot together a few times with Carola this year, and a few months ago she suggested that Alessandro wanted to do something different.
The holidays are over and its time to get back to shooting. This week I was in the studio with new comer model Hailie and
Hee Tatt Ooi joined as guest photographer. Originally I want to shoot out in the trees but the weather didn’t let us, luckily i have a few hundred ideas back up in the back of my brain.
Last time Björn S was in the studio I had to rush of due to a minor emergence so it was time to apologise and finish off our shoot. Like the last few shoot we started off out doors to catch the last rays of sunlight then moved into the studio.
My fellow photographer this week was Stefanie K who I have wanted to shoot with for a while so I was very happy that it worked out and we got to finally shoot together.
