OneLight 2.0

Something a little different today, I bought the 5 Day Deal a couple of weeks ago which had lots of great content. This week I have been watching a set of videos by Zack Arias called One Light 2.0. I am about half way through just now and really enjoying it. It is well produced in B&W with clear examples and Zack is a good teacher – I enjoy his sense of humour. It is a great resource for learning about lighting, covering everything from the basics of the equipment needed, the technical aspects of flash exposure and with some real examples along with a very well photographed squirrel.

Meanwhile…I am busy setting up another shoot hopefully with an Art Deco theme to try some ideas out, and a new nightstand with a boom turned up today 🙂 This a shot from a few weeks ago.

Diwali Festival

We wine to the Diwali celebrations in Christchurch today, Diwali is the Indian festival of lights and it was very colourful, the food was good too 🙂 For all the colours it was also quite dark much of the time we were there so I have ended up using high ISO even with my 50mm f/1.4 lens, and monochrome seemed like the way to go mostly. It also appears that my 50mm needs a little focus adjustment, so that will be tomorrow’s job.

A little colour to start.
