PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

I've been meaning to get some photography lighting tips video blogs together and finally got my first one done and dusted, I had singer/song writer Tasita D'Mor booked in for an album cover photo-shoot and thought it would be a great shoot to video. I specialize in modern contemporary portraits and photograph a lots of singers, artists, athletes etc. As well as the album cover Tasita wanted some more photos to boost her portfolio so as you'll see in the video we use a range of photographic and lighting techniques and show with lighting and camera setting diagrams as well as before and after photo's on how we created the final professional images.

  I often use Old Leigh as a location for my photo shoots but used a quirky little bar in Southend on sea  called 'the Old Hat' for this one which worked out well for the style of images I was looking for, I'm always looking for that little something to add to my photography and hope the video blogs will help add something to others  as well..

I first set the camera to the ambient light then light the subject (Tasita D'Mor) with a grided beauty dish to stop the light from spilling and killing of all the ambient lighting.. Then a bit of cloning and adjustment layers in photoshop to finish. I hope to be adding some photoshop tutorial video in the next month or so, so if creative portrait photography is you thing then watch this space..
