I have a fascination with this building, mainly because it’s extremely huge property with massive amounts of abandoned buildings with are all mental health facilities, talk about creepy cool? However, the security doesn’t enjoy me, considering how many times I’ve not been escorted off the property for trying to capture photographs of the buildings.
A Re-Creation image, focusing on lighting VS posing and styling. In this lighting study I worked to re-create the image on the left, although with the alteration of using red gels instead of blue, due to the fact that red pops much more, and suites my model fittingly.
As you can see by the set shot - a white seamless was used, with two gelled lights forming the red background - however I only had access to one red gel, and due to the fact that red is a primary colour, trying to create red with multiple other gels became a challenge. BUT if you use pink, purple, and orange, you get the perfect matching red colour! And on top of that a zoom head mounted to the floor was used to great the white hot spot, and a simple soft box set to a low power was used to properly illuminate the model.
The time has finally come where I’ve sat down and bit the bullet to make a Facebook page of some sorts.
Please, give it a like and share for me as it was published just today!
As well, I would like to say thank you to each and everyone of you who follow this blog, you are all rad!
Today I discovered I have placed in the Professional Photographers of Canada contest (PPOC).
Meaning officially, that apparently I am now classified as within the top 20% of photographers in Canada.
Judging continues to discover if I will be winning any of the major awards offered, with the potential of being whisked away to Montreal for the ceremony.
Also, not only have I placed with one of my images, but I placed with both of the images I had submitted (this is a very rare case that multiple images from the same person place)
This is extremely exciting news for me! I cannot be more thrilled this is happening! Here’s to hoping I placed even better.
