With the range of colored lights and gels available, it may seem tempting to use them for the background in place of colored seamless background paper. Here are some reasons why seamless paper is still often the best choice…
Renowned for her commercial fashion and beauty images, photographer Lindsay Adler breaks down a few of her favorite studio lighting setups for beauty photography in a recent video tutorial.
In this detailed tutorial the photographers of Dancers & Dogs, Kelly and Ian, explain how they layer two 107″ x 12yd Savage Seamless Paper rolls to create a large canvas for their subjects to jump and leap freely.
Getting started in the realm of fashion and beauty photography can be tricky. When setting up studio lights that can take up a large amount of a room, space becomes a very valuable resource.
In an ever growing photography industry, it can be hard to stand out and create truly unique photos. So why not bring in an element of creative color into your photographs with the Savage RGB Light Painter Pro LED Wand?
While I have played a bit with color gels in the past I shoot almost solely with strobes so I was eager to see how the constant light version of gels would work.
When photographing pets, I edit the animals as minimally as possible because I want to ensure that the dogs look as realistic as possible, especially if they are still in search of their “furever” home (from my adoption sessions).
Clarifying backgrounds, freeing them of unnecessary clutter is something every photographer is taught and it only becomes clear when all the mistakes have been made and the idea becomes second nature to us.
By combining gels along with colored seamless, photographers can play with multiple color palettes, and create bold and engaging images.
There are so many different techniques and tricks that Photographers have been using for years to create unique effects on their photos (and videos). I hold and move the object in front and around my lens until I get my desired look. You can add some objects to your kit and use them in the studio or take them with you on location; you may even have these at home!
