Lighting Stand In

Setup for Dancer Photographs – Cary Ballet Conservatory Studio Recital 4 June 2021

I’d metered my lights but still needed a Stand In for a test shot.

Ended up with a Sit In but she worked with me!

Another photographer mistake as I ignored the limits of my lights

My bet is, she’ll forgive me

Tough Customer

Bookings since late May (hallelujah!) have delayed the edit of these Studio Recital photographs until today.

Aiming to finish and post by late Saturday. This was the first of a long and unusual day. Which I loved.

I’m anxious to see them too and sure I better deliver – or else!

Backlit

Sometimes, a photographer sets his main light to full power.

And knows it will take 1.7 seconds to recycle

But he gets in the moment and fires in .5 seconds. And pretends he planned it.
