Creative Conceptual Portraits
Learn how to create stunning conceptual portraits. In this live demonstration Mark demonstrates the techniques and styles when shooting creative conceptual images with speedlites.
Mark starts off by explaining how he is going to use three point lighting to compliment the creative fantasy look of the image. Shooting the crucial test shots, he makes certain he’s getting the white and bright fantasy lighting he wants, before getting creative and messy by dropping feathers above the model. To demonstrate the creativity and variety you can get with a simple and small light setup, he rearranges the flashes multiple times to capture a range of different images in a short amount of time. To finish the session Mark only fires the key and fill light which captures some interesting images.
