To practice and improve how I shoot I do what people call test shoots, and these end up being part of my portfolio (if I ever do get there). This was one such shoot where I decided to leave the confines of a studio and shoot with studio strobes and natural light. Boy was it challenging, but I learnt a lot and hope do some more shooting outside. The trick is to balance light and I am sorry to say, you have to understand the technical aspects of photography (zzzzzzzzzz) and the measurement of light. I am going to be buying a light metre to get near perfect readings next time. The light measurements were done by the camera and by eye.
Heres a question, what sort of photographer do you think I am? or how would you explain my work? If somebody asked you what type of photography do I shoot, what would you say? Can you tell anything about my personality from my work?
Seriously curious to know your thoughts on moi and this image :)
