What better way to kick-start a new blog by pulling out some old photos?
I’d just gotten hold of an orbis ring flash, Vijay wanted to dispose of daytime fireworks, a few photographer friends wanted to get creative, so we pulled this baby out of the bag.
This was a collaboration between photographers Rory Laubscher from Firefly Photography, Sean Dick from Evoke Studio, Nick Tran, Vineet Menon and models Vijay Prema, Sylvia Philcox, Jeffrey Wang and Helen Fergusson. Feb 2012 seems like a long way back!
– Orbis Ring Flash
– Couple of $100 YN 450’s (You don’t need expensive gear to achieve great results)
– Canon 60D
– Daytime Fireworks
This above was lit with an Orbis Ring Flash. We crept into a dark “lair” behind some bushes to cut out the ambient light.
“Warming-up” before the takeaway shot of the day.
Sean making sure we got the lighting spot on…
After a trial run without fireworks, Jeff sprang into action. The results on our first take …
We then explored the estate for a few natural light shots.
And headed back to the “lair” for another Orbis Ring flash frenzy.
Finally wrapping up with some staged “role-play”.
Turning onto Rory for suggesting it looked “unnatural”…
Hope to have inspired you to just get out there as photographers and models. Have a bit of fun.
