What I learned during tonight's photoshoot.... [Dec. 2nd, 2004|11:29 pm]

Tonight was my first time using the new lights. I think that they work well and am pleased with their performance. I think that having one more sometime in the future to wipe out shadows on the backdrop is needed, but for now the two lights work fine. solan_t did very well during the shoot, more comfortable in front of the camera and suggesting some excellent poses. The results of a little under 2 hours work is 239 pics in 2 outfits, with 2 backdrop colors and some black light shots.

I got a good black light bulb. I put it in one of the lamps, turned off the lights, turned on the black lightbulb. The only thing that really happened is a few white things in the room glowed. Otherwise the model and her entire outfit were invisible. I put the white diffuser umberella in front of it, and it made it into a bluish light, and we used that for many pictures. I have high hopes of having several good ones to share.

I do think that Thursday evenings suck for getting a good parking spot, and the equiptment is kinda heavy. Maybe I should plan these on Mondays in the future.

I'll sort a few pics tonight, but the bulk will wait until after a good nights sleep.

Big thanks to solan_t for modeling, and radcliffe for the use of her office. Again.
