Gregory Heisler http://www.gregoryheisler.com/I have been such a fan of Greg’s work for years. His miner shots were one of the most memorable set of images I have ever seen. Take a look at Heisler’s work and see how he creates more than a portrait, more than a picture. From lighting to composition, Heisler’s images are sublime.www.lighting-essentials.com
Dan’s work knocks me out. Interesting website design, even though it is the dreaded Flash interface. I like how the images are shown is sets, or projects, or jobs. I can see how he approaches multiple shot jobs.
His lighting is wonderful. Lots of action in the model work. I love how the models seem to be so free, with the camera as an afterthought.
A Photoshop Tutorial on Creating an Antique Look for Digital Images
I have a full tutorial at the LE site on how to create an Antique Look for your images. There are many ways to do it. This way is mine. Every layer can be tweaked for additional changes to the final image.
This is very fresh work. The lighting runs from subtle to strong, but the vision is organized and exciting.
This shot has so many great things in it. The reflection on the glass, the gestures of the models, the natural feel of the light as it plays on hair and faces. Each girl seems to be in her own world, and yet they are totally in sync with each other.
Lighting Essentials is a place to learn photography and lighting. We choose an image each day for fun.
Richelle was my subject for some testing with the Kacey Beauty Dish and a speedlight. The dish is so well constructed and light efficient that it amazed me. Not only with the quality of light, but the power as well. I will have some more to share about this wonderful light modifier soon. I used some “antique” Photoshop manipulations to create the old-time look to the image.
