It’s not often you get to see exactly how a professional photographer executes a photography brief! After the review for our last photography brief challenge, Karl demonstrates exactly how he would have shot the image if he was working for a client and how you could overcome some of the common challenges associated with the shoot.
One of the biggest difficulties members seemed to face was controlling light fall off, so Karl shows three useful techniques to overcome this common problem. He also explains the inverse square law, how it works and how you can modify your studio to better control it.
Throughout this shoot, you’ll see Karl’s methodical workflow, how he identifies problems, and how he gradually builds up his lighting to arrive at the final image. He discusses what props and backgrounds to use, his camera settings and lens choice, how to control the softness of light and how you can use mirrors if you don’t have enough lights. This is an informative live show that completes our third photography brief challenge. For more of these challenges, please check our live show page.
