The Lighthouse

Sitting on top of my bucketlist for as long as I can remember... The Awesome lighthouse 'Het Paard van Marken'. More a sunrise location but sunset will do just fine for now...

Into the Night
Same 650 Watt tungsten spot used behind our actor here: only my position has changed. For this shot, I'm on top of a 6 foot platform with the camera on a tripod roughly at eye level.

It's on a tripod so I could shoot the same scene exactly with and without Joe, who is in the shot holding up an SB900 on a pole with a snoot attached, to splash a tiny bit of light on Caspar's face.

I didn't want the shadows this cast on the building, or to see the light and Joe in the shot, and so I painted in the shot without Joe to erase the stray light from the flash, and the flash itself, the pole and Joe from the shot.

These sort of shots really need a lot of help to make them happen. Iain arranged the platform, Joe held the light, and Brian was watching the hot-light: don't ever leave these big tungsten lights unattended.

Bright Lights, Big City VII
Taken in Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The awesome city of Rotterdam at night. Love the mixture of the different lights! The foggy conditions add something special to an otherwise dark black sky. In front is the ‘Floating Forest and in the back the famous ‘Kop van Zuid’ and the Erasmus Bridge. I kind of get a Gotham feel for these images because of the lights, the fog and the illumination from the bridge on the right reminding me of the Bat-signal…

Bright Lights, Big City I

The awesome city of Rotterdam at night. Love the mixture of the different lights! The foggy conditions add something special to an otherwise dark black sky. I was standing with my tripod on the concrete blocks that temporarily divide the two driving lanes during the construction of the road.

From a recent head-shot session with Stacey Lynn Crowe
https://www.facebook.com/stacey.l.crowe

No retouching allowed on acting headshots, so the development of these images is limited to contrast, tone curve and toning - all done within Adobe Lightroom CC, based on the Nikon Portrait profile.

Lighting is a simple small beauty dish with diffusion overhead and a white foam-core board as a reflector below.

Originally published as part of an Adobe Spark page, this image still makes me smile. Totally impromptu etc - and luck was on my side to get the moment...

Lasers: very useful for lighting very precise bits of your product! Not that you'd use this as a catlogue image - just for fun.
