A fair amount of information on the internet is concerned with the demonstration of the use of only one light. The approach I take is to light the whole subject and create a sense of dimension in the final image. This being said, it is also very important to establish the setting or backdrop for the photographs.
This blog post chronicles a day at my recent Lighting Workshop held on July 9, 2017. The place, Woods Canyon Lake, N-E of Payson, AZ
We began at the lakeside campground of Woods Canyon Lake, in a setting of pine trees and Aspens. And while Phoenix was sporting temperatures in three digits, we enjoyed the pleasantry of cool breezes and mid 70's weather.
The theme of this portrait, eliciting the feeling of the meeting of Guinevere and King Arthur in the forests of Camelot, a cinematic look was envisioned.
