Black and White………..

31 Jan

Whilst I was shooting a burlesque show at a large Brisbane restaurant, the piano player mentioned that all he had were some snap shots of himself.

We moved away from the piano as it was near a bar lit with multi coloured LED lights which are in fashion it seems and captured this.

Just like the keys on the piano…Black and White!!

Any light you can find…..

those of you that know me realise that I follow the K.I.S.S. principle  as much as possible. Probably because I can relate to simple. Last night I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot a function in Brisbane at the beautiful Gambaros restaurant, and whilst doing some portfolio shots for some of the performers I realised that the lighting equipment I had (speedlights) just weren’t achieving the look I wanted. So remembering words from the awesome Joe McNally, use what you got !. So by positioning these fantastic artists under a downlight and positioning a speakers lectern with a white table-cloth draped over it as a reflector, the desired look jumped off the cameras LCD screen and with very little PP some great images were achieved.

It just goes to show, think outside the square, use up some digital film (its free) and try something new.
