I was going through my old hard drive when I came across these old photos which were taken back in the summer of 2008, in Sweden. Decided to give them a bit of a tune up and post them here. All photos taken using my old Nikon D80 and the stock 18 -135mm lense
Now I don’t normally do shoots with men, not sure why to be honest. Anyway it just made me realize that I should be shooting more photographs with men and women together or just men. I font want to be a sexist now do I. Anyway moving along, my good friend Sean gave me a call upon returning to Malaysia as he is now currently based in Sydney, Australia. He needed my help to shoot some photos of him for his YouTube channel as well as his Facebook fan page. So in return of some photos he bough me many rounds of refreshing beverages.
I was actually not going to post these photos at first however decided otherwise. As I thought it would be interesting to show how much you can achieve by just using two speedlights in photography. These photos were taken while on a assignment and the goal was to capture people and their pets together in a homey environment. For this particular shoot I decided to use a soft box as the key light and an umbrella as the fill light.
As time lapse photography is becoming more popular among photographers, I though of sharing an excellent video by the famous photographer Vincent Laforet. In this video Laforet gives us the basics of what you need to know about time lapse photography and how to be successful at creating those breathtaking videos. One of the key aspects of the video is in regards to how Laforet calculates the number of photographs needed in order to create a smooth finish to the time lapse video.
