I am extremely excited to announce that I will be teaching a CreativeLIVE course on Advanced Lighting for Adventure Photography. This course is sponsored by Red Bull Photography. In this course, we will be diving into the very exciting, and relatively new lighting techniques like Hi-Sync (HS), as well as many other advanced lighting techniques,...
Always a wealth of information both yourself and Creative Live. I look forward to seeing this course.
HOLY MOLY! I’ve been binge-watching your CreativeLIVE sessions since they ran live and now in re-broadcast. I think my world has just changed. I’m a street shooter who’s been living in the Smoky Mountains and I’ve been looking for a way to leverage where I live with my photography. It’s home to some great outdoor activities (kayaking, hiking, cycling, etc.) – Thank you an exceptional class and the inspiration. The timing for this was too perfect.
If you were to purchase a set up to cover adventure sports and portraits what would you recommend.
2 each ELB 1200’s?
or 1 ea. ELB 400 and a 1200?
Which 1 or 2 light modifiers.. Octa or deep octa or 1 ea.?
…and of course 1 ea. or 2 ea. high performance reflector?
…also I would get the kit on Adorama which includes the pro.. action.. and hi synch heads.
I shoot with D800e and D4 and Hasselblad 5DX with Phase One Back 100mp.
Thank you Michael for all your help.
For a minimum kit, I’d go with one each of the ELB 400 and ELB 1200. Note that for the Hasselblad and leaf shutters you will need the Action heads. No need for the Pro head, the HS and the Action heads are the only ones I use. The high performance reflector is great for sports, not so much for portraits. The Deep Octa is nice as well. You can also rent a few different ones and see which you like. I have tons of light modifiers and use a wide variety of them. Hope this helps.
