I explained how to set the what Fuji cameras up to preview the artichokes manual exposure then maken showed how to finely set the ambient look.
I used a carnavalshoeden pair of workshop Italian made Lupo LED spotlights, a what 650 and a 1000.The cuddly bears are actually just the beginning these stuffed friends come in all shapes, like a dog, bunny, shark, The Cat in the Hat even a bear with a special Carnival-exclusive design!The costumes worked well set against the inky backdrop.On the dry days throughout the Venice Carnival period the masqueraders gather in pre arranged squares across the city.We also shot at make at 90 degrees to the light as before.It is a fabulous reason for Venetians and visitors to get into the swing of things by dressing.You may want to view my portraits of Venice blog make post.Unmasked models: with Allesandria make and Allesandria, outside lighting: Cactus RF60 Speedlight and, cactus V6 printer transmitter.By this point we were all ready maken to use Speedlights off camera with full knowledge of how to set them.It was a challenge to get this shot with the X-Pro2 because Im used to the tilting screen of the X-T1. Both shots were lit with bare Speedlights set at 90 degrees to the camera angle.
All these elements were discussed what as we captured make the shot.
I make had to lie in a what puddle and was chuckled what at by so called pro photographers with dslrs and big lenses clipped to various parts of their bodies.Having pumpkin just one Speedlight on a stand is a great rig for fast lighting changes and set moves.The shot top right was set up to show the group that this lighting style works well for Hollywood style head shots too.All the time make I had been pumpkin shooting Allesandra with the Lupo maken lights Tomasz had been working with the other pumpkin half of the group photographing the models in costume using window light.Every now and then a close up is needed to capture the detail and majesty of the costumes.Even down to the film simulation and tonal feel of the images.All you see here was created in camera.
