Balancing Sunlight NaturallyFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday June 27, 2013 Making The Lit Look Unlit Photographers just starting out with lighting equipment can make the mistake of showing too much in their work: it's generally easy to spot when supplemental lighting gets used. But it takes practice and finesse to create images where additional lighting tools do not draw attention. It is similar to how a soundtrack serves a movie. When done right, you are not conscious of it, but it enhances your overall experience. To capture images this way, it…

Using Strobe OutdoorsFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday September 1, 2016 Equipment:ADH 45” Silver Adjustable UmbrellaUsing artificial light in outdoor settings is one of the most useful techniques every professional portrait photographer should know.

These portraits - shot in color and converted to black & white - capture the rawness and grit of the subjects.

Reflection and Diffusion for Improved Macro PhotographyFROM LITE LESSONS: Wednesday July 13, 2016 Equipment: 32" 9-in-1 MultiDisc® Reflector42" 5-in-1 MultiDisc® Reflector KitWhen I am not photographing portraits, I enjoy turning my lens to the natural world. I have always loved macro photography, but taking close-up photographs in natural light can be challenging. Usually the available light is not the best quality. For this reason I always bring some portable lighting tools with me that allow for modifying natural light while not making the photo look artificially lit. I primarily use a Photoflex 32" 9-in-1…

It’s Not About The CameraFROM LITE LESSONS: Friday June 27, 2014 Often times, photographers ask me what I think about upgrading their current lenses or camera bodies. I hear them say things like, “If I get this full frame camera or some expensive lens, it’ll take my work to the next level”. Is it possible that spending that same money elsewhere might give you a better end product at a much lower cost? To find out, I did a comparison between the Canon 7D with a 50mm 1.8 lens and a 5DMK3…

Having used Photoflex gear for over twenty five years, I have always relied on their excellent build quality and performance. All soft boxes, umbrellas and reflectors are color correct for perfect color temperature and made with state-of-the-art fabrics and construction. Very versatile for artistic lighting, Photoflex gear is also easy to set up and pack when shooting on location.

Photoflex was my first choice for light modifiers when I started building my own studio arsenal almost twenty years ago. I still have that first Medium Softbox, and use it often. Photoflex Octodomes produce wonderful light, and with a grid installed I find I can control almost any on-location lighting situation. Photoflex reflectors in my equipment case, too, have been with us the entire ride - doing their job as well as on Day One.
