Justin Zhang Photography – Wedding Photographer in Leeds & Yorkshire »

Phil is a mater chef in a top restaurant in Central Leeds. Today he came to me with his mate Tempa for some chef promo shoot. We exchanged few ideas but we did feel our initial plan was too old fashion——either holding a huge wok in the kitchen or playing around with the knives. Then I suggested ” do you want to do it in a band promo way instead?” They read my idea straight away and we are pleased we created the scene like” Gangster Chef”. LOL

PINIMAGEAre you getting bored to under exposure you background when you apply your lighting? It has been a long time for me to over power the sun purposely to create a blue sky or cloudy look. It is nothing wrong with that and still works perfectly with most of my clients. However, it does not mean you can not light your subject with a power is even to ambient light—–think about it—–think back—–back to on camera flash period, while everyone knew the power of fill from that flash on the top of camera.

Today, I photographed a subject with a even mixture of artificial light and available light). Unless you realize the shadow in the pic, you might thought its captured by just available light.

Test 1: My starting point: a 50 inch softbox applied—for a window light look. The initial test was obviously too bright (maybe 1 stop) over the available light that you can easily tell the existence of an artificial light there.

Test 2: I was limited by the size of the room, the left side of “model” was a bit darker than his right. I filled in a ring flash (a bit bright again for my initial test as you can easily tell from the ring shadow) to fill in the details of subject’s left arm, dark trousers as well as the foreground.

Test 3: As the model turned to his left a bit, I filled in another light to just bring 1/2 stop on his face (the pic might look like 1 stop higher)

All lights are adjusted to the similar power as ambient so you don’t particular see any obvious light.
