Jewelry photography, Markus Hartel, New York

2-light set-up, one strobe from above, diffused through parchment paper, one frontal strobe for sparkles, white reflectors on either side for shape. Very little post processing, contrast etc., reflection on black plexiglass. Note to self: black plexiglass needs to get dusted & cleaned before every shot, especially when a long haired Ragdoll cat is floating […]

More Water Splash High Speed Photography

Markus Hartel still life photography, New York

This time I used a 40° gridded strobe from the right and flagged the glass’ bottom from unnecessary light spill. I also got a lot smarter about the water spilling around and used a boot tray to contain the excess water. note: the flash duration of the Speedotron seems to be a whole lot lower […]

At first I tried using triggertrap as normally used -plugged in into the camera- and […]

One-on-One with Chris

L1014719

when the light is so harsh that I need to squint, essentially shooting at f16 – I either avoid shooting at all, or I dig out the flash to counter the high contrast at least a little bit. I’d oftentimes underexpose the ambient and set the flash to fill in at a low power. The […]
