Live Shoot with Members

Janice talks about light basics while shooting live with the group; she uses a pearl bracelet and shiny coins.

Remember to play while you photograph and make a lot of mistakes.  This will help you grow in your studio adventures.

Pearls: I used one continuous light high above the tent on a C-Stand to spread the light around the pearls.

Coin: I used 2 continuous lights on the side of the tent and crossed the light source.  I had a polarizer on my lens to help with the stray light hitting my lens.

Video on how to White balance…  Note:  if your color is still blowing out (not having detail) after you set your manual white balance, decrease your exposure until you see details.
