Portraiture (Cont…)

I have always liked to do portraiture photography outside of the studio setting but have often been put off by the thought of having to carry lots of equipment around with me, but then I came across this article about Interfit Strobies. These are great modifiers for your flashgun and do not take up a lot of room, so if you enjoy using your flashgun out on location these could be the ideal solution.

The modifiers include:

  • Barndoors
  • Honeycomb
  • Snoot
  • Beauty Dish

The price is a reasonable £90 and I think that this is a bit of equipment that I would be interested in acquiring.

I found an umbrella for the flashgun also.

Painting with Light (2)

Today has not been a productive one. Tried experimenting with more light images but nothing seemed to be going to plan. I was hoping to produce some images that were more complex than the ones I made yesterday, but I have realised that the torch I have been using is not suitable for what I wanted to do. Will have to have a rethink, putting the camera away for today…enough is enough! Here are some more simple images that I produced.

The images were created using a small torch in a darkroom, using the following:

  • Nikon D90 Camera
  • AF-S Nikkor DX 18-105mm  1:3.5-5.6 G ED Lens
  • Focal Length – 18mm
  • Tv – 10″
  • Av – F11
  • ISO – 200

I then decided to combine all of the images and add some colour in Photoshop CS6.

Here are a couple more pictures that I took as an experiment, this time using the light from a gas hob.
