Sometimes I wonder: does anyone read this? I thought about hiding something hideous in the middle of the sentence just to see if someone recognize it. Anyway! Had fun again with this cool guy in the studio. He makes my work easy, delivers and is professional, but their is always time to laugh.
As I wrote in my last post, I started photography because I like to take pictures of people. That's why outcome of portraits is so high every time I shoot. In tis shooting, I only focused on them. The human face is something special. You just have to look closely and it tells you so much.
Back to basic. During my move, I realized how much equipment has accumulated over the years. Lamp tripods, light shapers in all sizes and shapes, Reflector Panels. As I sat in my chaos, I wondered: why did I start photography? It was out of the fascination of photographing people. I've never been a tech freak. But anyway I thought at the beginning of my career: if I still have the part of equipment, my pictures are going to be much better. But as so often, you buy without knowing what and why. Due to a lack of equipment I recently had to do a portrait with only a naked bulb, aluminum foil and baking paper and what can I say: even that has led to the desired result. Sometimes less is more and it makes us more conscious of focusing on what and why we do it.
One year ago I had the opportunity to work with @jakobluster for the first time. Great to see what development and progress he made in a year. Nice to accompany someone on his way. Good luck in South Korea. Used a white beauty dish as main light. Two striplights on the background. Shot on a Canon 5dII with the 24-105mm at f8. . . .
