Well, it is tech-sheet Friday, but that will have to be tech-sheet Saturday this week. The tech sheet I am working on is about using a meter, and there are a few more images that must be shot before it is ready to go.
So I have instead decided that it would be good to put our newest desktops up here at lighting-essentials.com so you can get a head start on decorating your desktops in preparation for Valentines day. Oh, and if you want to see the one I did for Smashing Magazine, it is here, about 5 or so down.
Now for some news before we unleash you into the page.
We have workshops in Montana and Chicago, and due to massive requests, we are now booking Omaha. I am really excited about this. Lots of traveling and working from hotel rooms, but it is also great to get to places that are off the beaten path and meet some great people.
The workshops have changed a lot since we started, and now they are right where it makes sense for them. I concentrate on lighting, but we also discuss the other realities of shooting subjects from portrait to fashion. Posing, handling a shoot, staying in control, shooting for post and more.
Now, on to the calendars for February. BTW, if you like them and are using them, let me know either in the comments or by email. And be sure to subscribe with RSS and let your friends know by clicking the save/share link at the bottom of the post.
Next up is our ode to love. Marisa is a model in the Bay Area. This shot was taken with natural light to the front, with a gold reflector used to light the back wall behind her. This delicate light created a subtle gradient of light and sets her face off well.
Tomorrow will bring our Tech Sheet on using a light meter, and next week a couple of new videos that will be fun.
See you then.
