High Key Model

At Photo Plus Expo recently held in New York, I accompanied my cousin to a studio set up to demonstrate cameras and lighting off site. It was in a warehouse loft space. There were still life, product, and models on hand to demonstrate technique and equipment. I felt like I was party to a professional shoot and peering over the shoulder of the photographer. I don’t have the space for the lighting involved but it was fun. I let my slow shutter speed blur the hair moving from the fan. And note the negative space, another element of design. Using negative space is a new composition element for me.

  2. What a great opportunity for you – thinking of changing careers again? Hmmm? Love the shot.

    • I took that shot. I could do it again. But if it was work, it wouldn’t be fun. Too much pressure. Myself, I prefer life and death situations.
