Power of Light in Scotts Valley with Craig Dale

Hard to believe that this gorgeous portrait was made by an emerging photographer on her first try with studio lighting. But that is exactly what Deborah Hayes did at the Photoflex® Power of Light workshop, on June 15th in Scotts Valley, California. Deborah and 28 other participants learned the building blocks of photographic lighting from pro photographer Craig Wallace Dale. The workshop began with Craig explaining the basic vocabulary of light (brightness, direction, contrast, color, and the specular diffuse range), and ended with students moving into the three shooting situations and creating dynamic pictures with gorgeous light that they created....

Ian Spanier: Sometimes One Light is Enough

I’ll admit that sometimes on set, it’s about the “show” that you need to put on for your client. What I mean by this is that there are times that having lots of equipment around and assistants constantly moving becomes a necessary part of showing your client that you are more than just a monkey who presses a button. And while that’s all fine and good, sometimes you can say a lot more with one light on a stand than with a cube truck full of gear. All too often, photographers these...

Laura Tillinghast: A Multi-Talented Go-Getter

In addition to shooting stunning portraiture and conducting first rate lighting workshops, Pro Showcase Laura Tillinghast is also a pretty good baker.  We know this because she just sent us a box of her delicious homemade cookies this week.  "I love to bake and do a lot of it when I am not shooting," she admits.  We size her up as a "pretty good" baker because clearly, she doesn't have a lot of down time with her photography. In early June of this year, we discovered Laura's work in Profesional Photographer magazine and the fact...

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...

The Simplest Lighting in the World - Nov. 4, 2011

Is there really such a thing as the “simplest lighting in the world?” Yes, there is. It has many names, but I’ll call it SOFT SIDE LIGHTING (SSL) for the purpose of this lesson. SSL is very plentiful. Of course direct sun is even more plentiful, but SSL is much more attractive. You can find SSL very easily, or you can make it with diffusion material using a LitePanel or a SoftBox, and the results will be wonderful. Let’s begin by showing how to find and use SSL outdoors. The photo below is a...
