There is a lot to consider when photographing models in motion, particularly jumping shots. To safely capture these images, you need to consider your flash speed, where to pre-focus, how high the model will be jumping, their fitness levels, movement techniques, their shoes, and how you can create a safe environment for them to work in.
In this live show, Karl explains how to photograph moving subjects, going into more detail about each of these points before demonstrating how to safely capture a jumping shot of a model. You’ll see how he uses just a single light setup, comparing results from umbrellas, softboxes and P70 reflectors, as well as how to add additional lights such as background lights and edge lighting.
Karl also covers the concept of flash duration, what duration is required for freezing these moving subjects, background choices and considerations, and what focus mode is best to use.

- How to photograph moving subjects
