I started my photography course today, so far, love it.  Instructor seems pretty good and the class looks like a diverse and interesting bunch.

 

Projects for the term were handed out.

 

First assignment:

 

• 8x10" prints mounted prints of our work:

- "GAP" style portraits

- "Location/Editorial" Shot

- "Classic Portrait"

 

4 more assignment topics after this.  See the image below of a portion of the studio, I tried to avoid getting any student in the pic.  The studio itself is very nice.  2 shooting areas, huge backdrops, White and Black, tons of studio lighting ... CHIMERA ... I think, and ... hi end MACs!

 

We will have 6 or 8 models to work with and at the end, have to bring one of our own.  Oh joy! I am already wracking my brains as I am sure, no one "locally" will volunteer! Oh, and we will individually be a model as well for a self portrait, so we can experience being on the receiving end! That should be fun as well.

 

Most of the work is in studio, a portion will be "street" photography.  She seems to keep repeating a "homeless person" theme, need to set her straight on this.  

 

Found out you can get seriously hurt if you don't handle the lighting power boxes correctly.  We got a crash course today on how NOT to get blown across the room if you pull the cables out while the power is on.  This is serious stuff!! Who knew!

 

We have lots of different Light Boxes, Glamour Dishes, Umbrellas etc.  So, I am stoked!!  I can hardly wait till next Monday!

 

She has requested we go 30 minutes early and stay later!! Loving it already.  4 hours in the studio!!  How awesome is that!

 

The models are all different types so that is going to be fun too!  Musician, glamour etc.  I think we are going to avoid Fashion.

 

We can do any style we want, so I really like this part of the course.

 

We learned some technique today on how lighting effects different things, reflectors etc.  All cursory information.  A lot of ground was covered and not in a ton of detail, but enough that we can hit the ground running next week.

 

I will report on a weekly basis as the course progresses and share all the information I can with you.  If you have any questions, ask!!

What you see is about 1/4 of the studio.

It must be a older one. The newer ones have more safeguards. You just have to dump the power that is stored in it. I use mono light, the power is in each one. The older ones, you had to dump the power or it can age the light quickly. Now, the newer ones dump when you shut it off.

Once you get to playing with lights and modifiers in the studio you will lose all track of time - it is one of my favourite parts of photography thought something I get little chance to do.

When she turned it off, it popped the lights.  Not sure.  The thing is a Big Black Car Battery type looking thing with a handle in the middle and all the nobs on top.

I will take a picture of it.  God knows, I will be there every week taking pictures!! :lol:

It very much seems that way.  3 hours went by in the blink of an eye last night and we did nothing but orientation on where everything is stored, how to set up and break down, assignments etc.

 

I am going to enjoy every minute for the next 3-4 months.... with an added hour tossed in just for fun, each class.  Most likely, longer!

Enjoy your course, Art.  Looking forward to reading your updates.  :)

 

I think I can relate to how you view this course.  I'm becoming more interested in off-camera flash and light modifiers.  Plan to have a serious play, once we get more renovations done.

I will do an update every Tuesday as the Class itself is every Monday night.  Rather than open a Topic for every class, I will just update this thread as I go along.  It think that might be the best way to do it.  

 

Open to suggestions....

Art -- have a look at strobist.blogspot.com. They're doing some great work with on-camera-type flash units, though he does use Einstein units occasionally.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how this goes for you.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

CLASS #2

 

I really do not know where to begin!  I had A BLAST!  I mean, with no uncertain terms, I had the time of my life.  I got there at 5:30.... left at 10:00.  I have no idea where those 4 1/2 hours went.  One minute, I was there, the next minute... it was over.

 

Here is the studio.... just to give you an idea of the space, the equipment and feel.  The lights are dimmed, and the session is in progress.

Today's class was about getting familiar with setup and take down.  We set up the backdrop (by pulling it down, easy enough), the we followed a diagram on the whiteboard on how to set up our lights.  One side had one light box at a 45 degree angle to the model. 2/3rd of the light box was shaded with foam board to block the light.  The black background images below are from that studio setup.

 

100 ISO

1/200s

f4

 

Heavy, pure sweet, heaven.  I love every minute.

 

The second setup, the lighter background images had two lights.  A full lightbox directly in front of model and a boom umbrella light directly behind and above. 

 

100 ISO

1/200s

f8

 

Nikon D800

Nikon 85mm f1.4G

Remote trigger

 

The lesson was very easy going.  We broke up into two groups and got to know the people in the class very quickly.  Everyone helped everyone, it was a lot of fun.  Met some really nice people!  There were 3 models hired to work the evening and they were terrific. See below....

 

The Nikon D800 is.... I say this, without ANY trepidation..... THE KING OF THE STUDIO!  If you see these on my monitor, in full size, full resolution, your JAWS will drop.  I have only seen images like these shot by pro's!!  I am simply astonished!

 

I got home about 11:00 today, and had to have a look.  Then, I couldn't help myself, I had to PP them.  Still cannot believe the results!

 

Please, speak your minds freely, I am eager to read what you honestly think of this small sample of images taken!  I took too many to post more, what I did was select the ones that intrigued me the most for what ever reason.  

 

Thanks!

They did, but they did work very hard. It was not an easy evening for them. I think the class is 14 students. Each student technically got to take 15 images of each one. That's 45 images....I shot 3 times that....eyes closed...out of focus, don't like that lets try again.....

Some people had to be reminded that it wasn't 200 images each!!! :lol: At the end, it was a free for all to try to get the last few I. You thought you missed or wanted better....

For us, it was fun, for them....hard work. They were awesome the whole evening!!

TAKE THE COURSE, Jim, you will love it!

Very nice, Art!  For some reason that last male model reminds me a bit of Mr. Spock...

 

His ears need a bit of an adjustment though.

Thanks for the post, Art.

 

Like the composition, but everything looks on the dark side.  I'm more inclined to blame the cheap Dell monitor at work than your photography.   :P

 

Which remote trigger did you use?

Herman, GREAT MINDS think alike!!  I had the exact same thought.

 

However, in person, his persona is substantially different.  You wouldn't think that talking to him, but when you take a look at the images, he could pass for a young Mr. Spock!

 

Happy BD day, by the way!! :)  Hope you had a nice one!
