Jay P Morgan: Creating the Spooky Portrait

  In this lesson, photographer Jay P. Morgan demonstrates how to make a "smoke tube of death" and how he used it in his cemetery grave digger shoot. You'll see the camera settings and lighting techniques he used, as well as how he created a low angle look from inside the grave.     For this shoot, I wanted to have smoke all over the graveyard and to be able to place it where I wanted it. A single source smoker emits from one place but a smoke tube allowed us to place smoke in specific places. We brought...

This Spring, Jay P. Morgan set out with his crew to the Bonneville Salt Flats to create some surreal images. In the video, you'll see how to blend strobes with daylight so that your images do not look artificially lit. Jay P. demonstrates a method he uses to better visualize and control what his strobes are doing when the modeling lights are not bright enough to guide him.

Jay P. Morgan: Depth of Field as a Creative Tool

In this video lesson, I wanted to demonstrate how depth of field can be used as a creative tool. I brought a crew out to Vasquez Rocks and used a simple two-light setup to shoot my beautiful model, Gabrielle Tuite. Here, you'll see how different focal lengths can give you different depth of field options. You'll see what lens choice will give you a shallow depth and what lens choice will give you a more scenic deep depth of field.        Location Vasquez is the perfect place to look at depth of field. It'...

Jay P Morgan: Urban Skateboarder Portrait, Part 2

This is the second in a two-part lesson that explores shooting action in a dark alleyway. Click here to see the first part. Adding Light to the Skateboarder's Face The next step was to brighten up the face of the skateboarder slightly. I added a StarFlash 300w with a 20˚ grid attached to focus light onto his face. Positioned at eye level, this strobe would project a beam of light and brighten just his face, nothing else. I didn't want the trashcan or his clothing to be any brighter than how much the umbrella light was already providing, but...

Jay P Morgan: Urban Skateboarder Portrait, Part I

In coming up for concept for this lesson, I was excited to shoot an action skateboard shot with a skater jumping a trashcan. I had shot a group of skaters for stock the week prior, but had not loved the location. It was cool and all, but I wanted something a bit more intense. During the time I was thinking about the location, I saw the movie "Max Payne". I felt that the sets and "film noir" look-and-feel of the film were much stronger than the actual film. I loved the alleys that they shot in and decided to shoot...

Jay P. Morgan: A Breakdown on LitePanel Reflectors

In this LiteBlog post, Jay P. Morgan reviews the basics of reflectors and demonstrates their effects on location.  This is a basic look at how reflectors work and the practical applications for each of the reflective fabrics.  For the beginning photographer, using a reflector is an easy way to start to modify light and learn where to place the light source in relationship to your subject.  Using reflectors and becoming good at placing them will teach you how to place strobes.  Good light placement is the same for both strobes and reflectors, but easier to see...
