MDI Photo Club Portrait Workshop

Posted by on Mar 4, 2017 in Lighting, People

The MDI Photo Club held its March “outing” indoors at the Harbor House in Southwest Harbor. With temperatures that morning starting in the single digits and only climbing into the low teens, it was a good day to be inside. I taught an informal portrait workshop on lighting, working with a model, and what’s so great about the inverse square law. I set up a mini-studio with small flash and modifiers to demonstrate equipment and techniques for shooting with artificial light indoors.

I shot these images with a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR and a Canon f/2.0 135mm lens. I lit the portraits with two Canon 600EX flash units firing through softboxes. For post processing I used Lightroom, Photoshop, and Analog Efex Pro 2.
