I mentioned briefly that I received some studio lighting equipment from the US about two weeks ago. I finally got to try the equipment. It was my first time using such lighting and I definitely have a lot to learn.
I bribed Ben to be my guinea pig for this first test. It also gives me the opportunity to share them with him mum
Then I edited the photos lightly in Lightroom, Photoshop and Silver efex.
I am quite happy with the results and I cannot wait to try portraits with two lighting sources.
These shots were taken with the D300, Nikon 50mm f/1.4, photoflex QL light in medium silverdome equipped with a 500watt starlite lamp, and, white reflector.
I am unplugging for tonight to study some photo lighting theory!
