Hi everyone! My name is Krisnha. My pic “Milk & Cookies” was the lead photo on the December 13, 2015 Reader Photos Roundup. Eric asked me if i want to talked about the picture and a little bit about me for Photography Bay, and without hesitation I said yes.
Let me start a little bit about me. I am from Bali, Indonesia. I used to live in the US but recently I moved back to my country. Photography started as a hobby for me and it grew to a stress reliever, and now I’m a full-time photographer.
I like to experiment on things. I see new technique and I try to copy it with a twist. I see a poster of film I like, I try to emulate it at home. I like using artificial light and a heavy strobist believer (hahaha).
And now about that picture “Milk & Cookies.” [Read more…]
When paired with the WR-R10, the SB-5000 can trigger up to 98 feet away. The SB-5000 can control up to six groups or 18 speedlights. The SB-5000 also has an internal cooling system that prevents overheating from consecutive firings.
Controls have also been streamlined and refined, with the addition of an “i” button for access to frequently used settings. The flash head can tilt down to -7° or up to 90° and will rotate 180° to the left or right.
The Nikon SB-5000 will be available in March for $599.95. You can pre-order it now here at B&H Photo.
In this video from Broncolor featuring Karl Taylor and Urs Recher, we learn how to combine two different kinds of lights in dance photography to capture motion blur and frozen detail. While they are using high-end Broncolor HMI lights with Broncolor Siros flashes, these concepts of working with flash and ambient light can work on any budget.
The key, of course, is setting your camera to rear curtain sync, so that the flash fires at the very end of the exposure, which gives you the detailed subject with the motion blur trailing.
What makes a great backlight even better? How about some fog or haze? But what if there is no fog or haze at your location?
Fog and haze machines are awesome for creating rays of light in your images but they are not very portable. And that’s part of the motive behind Knoxville-based photographers Joe and Kathleen Atkins’ desire to put haze in a can. [Read more…]
In this video, Karl Taylor and Urs Recher walk us through shooting a glass with a design engraved on it. They mix soft and hard light to illuminate the glass and the engraving separately.
In this video, Tony and Chelsea Northrup cover some great tips for shooting outdoors in mid-day and making lighting work for you by using shade, fill flash and diffusers in a variety of situations.
Photographers Dallas Nagata White and Ed White hiked to a lava flow in Kalapana, Hawaii to capture some images with lava and the night sky in one image. When they arrived on location, it began to rain and they decided to try shooting with some speedlights instead.
After capturing some fantastic images of the group they hiked with as well as some “here’s me in front of lava photos” of themselves, Ed told Dallas they need one more and dipped her for the kiss shot.
In these videos, Joe McNally walks through the basics of TTL flash, including lighting ratios and high-speed sync. He’s specifically talking about Profoto’s Air TTL system; however, these principles apply to smaller speedlights from Canon, Nikon and other manufacturers. [Read more…]
