Studio experimentation II

Following up on my previous table-top efforts, here is a photographic lighting experiment on a human scale. My brother Mica kindly provided the material for the photons to bounce off of.

These all use manual metering for both flash and exposure (none of that ‘through the lens metering’ stuff). Lighting is provided by a 430EX flash, shot through an umbrella, and my white-on-one-side-soft-gold-on-the-other reflector.

As with before, these are original and unmodified files, with no after-the-fact digital alterations applied.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Shooting most of these down in my semi-finished basement was Mica’s idea, and a very good one at that. It makes for a much more interesting backdrop than my generic upstairs walls.

  2. The photos are wonderful and the setting too. Mica makes a good subject because he is not self-conscious in front of the camera. Hope you are having a good visit.
