Lighting Techiques

I recently attended a workshop on lighting where we worked on a number of techniques to bring out the pictures to their max. Commencing with a simple one light setup we began with the use of a beauty dish above the model and a reflector below. This provided us with catch-lights in our model’s eyes in two places (upper and lower eye). A sample is here with our Model Katlyn.

The Second setup was similar but we used two Soft Boxes in an horizontal layout. Here the catch-light appeared in two places again however the angle was horizontal this time.


Next we tried some shots with back-lighting. This was done with a strobe and a blue gel cover to give a blue colour to the image.


Here is a sample of an image created this way with our model Katlyn.

My new Camera

I will put some stuff here that I do not have on the Main Gorham Family page.

If you have read the homepage, you will have seen that I got a new camera. Well here is a little more about it. It is the Nikon D80 Digital SLR. My first one so far. I wanted a camera that I could grow with as I am getting more and more into photography as a hobby. I also got a reasonable sized lens with it. It is a 18-200mm Vibration Reduction lens capable of automatic focusing. I guess this ties in well with my Web programming.

I have since taken on another website. This one belongs to the Breeder of my Golden Retriever Buddy. You can check out the site at http://www.acaciagold.com. This makes a total of 5 sites now.

Hey who knows I could acutally have something to do when I retire. Not that that is anywhere in the cards yet. But hey you never know. I could win the big lottery. 🙂
