Natalie was nice enough to help me today by letting me make photos of her. My model couldn’t make it and I really wanted to play with the new lighting toys… I mean tools… that I got in Thursday. 🙂
The silver thingy in the first photos background is one of those toys… err tools. It’s a shiny silver 7 foot parabolic umbrella… And it produces very sweet light. 🙂 I also got a soft silver one as well, that’s what I used to light Natalie from the front, but I didn’t take it with us outside.
Once I shot a few photos like that we headed downtown. I wanted to shoot her in the street against the wall across from The Forum, but there was some construction going on there. So we had to improvise.
I do like this alley and we did have some fun shooting there.
Considering how big the umbrella was I brought along 60 lbs. of sand bags to weight the stand down plus I strapped the 13 lbs. power pack on as well to the safe. Yes, I do believe in overkill. 😉
Anyway, I had a lot of fun shooting with Natalie today and we got some cool photos. And have I said how much I love the light this parabolic puts out? 🙂
