The Return of Jozzy - Visit Four Part 13 - Male Portraits in Studio
Mark returns with further guidance for The Photographer Academy’s first apprentices John and Osy, as he helps them to further develop both their photography and businesses.
Mark, John and Osy return to John’s studio in this final visit of the Apprentices Re-visited. In this final session John asks for advice on developing his lighting for shooting sports physique images. Mark guides the guys through a variety of set ups, beginning with two flashes and eventually working up to a 5 light set-up. Through this Mark demonstrates how it is importantly to know what you want each light to do within the image, and then have each one do its own job. By knowing the purpose of each light it means that if you need to shoot with less you can decide on what the purpose of the final image is and then adjust your lighting accordingly, rather than just tinkering to stumble across what looks good.
