photography studio experience + behind the scenes photo

Newer Older

Yesterday I got lucky and had the chance use a photography studio used by my sisters college, we had a few hours to take some photo's of a new dress she had made.

I had never been in this studio before and was clueless on how to operate four softboxes and no idea of what settings to use on my camera.

So I pretty much just jumped in and started trying some settings. I set my Canon to full manual, connected the slave softbox and took a few test shots, I found a shutter speed of around 1/125 and F16 worked best allowing me to hand hold and keep the light under control. I love the noise of all the flashes and the light they produced was insane. It was a fun and great learning experience, now I really want a studio of my own!

    Thanks everyone for the great comments =]

    @mr.analog ahh glad to hear the fustration didn't put you off tho, was your photo time for detention in the studio?

    @Clarissa yeah it was a steep learning curve =] It is a difficult dress to photograph as its really long and she wanted the trail in every photo

    @Patti awesome, would be really useful to take a class - let me know how it goes. Any info or tips would be great! =D

    thanks again everyone, I have to admit the perspective was my sister idea -> she even brought step ladders along so I could get directly above
