Mornin’ everybody – here’s a few quick things to start your week off:
- A quick tutorial on getting soft, beautiful portrait lighting using continuous lights
The video above shows a super-simple way to use continuous lighting to create really soft, beautiful light, and I show two variations, including adding a second light for more of a beauty-headshot look. It’s a clip from a KelbyOne online class I did on using Westcott continuous lighting and their soft boxes. To watch the full online class, follow this link.
2. A couple of shots from Yesterday’s Buc’s vs Saints Game
Above: I was happy to see two of my shots made the Sports Photos of the Day picks for the wire service I shoot for. The Bucs lost a game they shouldn’t have lost (again), but the Saints played a great game. One thing: is it really supposed to be 82° outside for a mid-December game? Even in Florida, that is…well…super hot. When does “football weather” arrive?
3. I’m interviewed by an Italian photography Website
Luckily, the interview is in English — if you’ve got a sec, here’s the link.
That’s it for this morning (and isn’t that enough?). Hope you all have a great Monday, and hope you’ll pop by again tomorrow. :)
Scott, do you have to add the descriptive comment to each photo you send to the service? I assume you have to email a bunch at half and the end, how do you remember it all?
I Peter. Yes, I have to fully caption each photo, and as soon as I’ve captioned 8 or so at halftime, I upload them to the wire. At the end of the game, I do it again with the 2nd half photos. Hope that helps.
Did you shoot with the 400 f2.8 or with the day game did you shoot with the 200-400 f4.0? Both examples deserve the accolades you received.
