We join Mark Cleghorn on a live photo shoot as he gets creative with a projector, creating a range of interesting and abstract images.

To start off the session Mark first demonstrates how to correctly expose for the projected image before going onto explain his approach for white balancing. To get variety within the short session Mark demonstrates shooting with the projection on just the model, the model and background and onto the background using a snoot to illuminate the model’s face.
