in this post I will tell you a little bit about how I shot a bunch of portraits - without any expensive lights and even without my beloved beauty dish! Shot with my Nikon D100, 50mm f/1.8, ISO 400 and 1/100 sec.
I have been talking with a lot of photographers about how to make my pictures kind of unique, because I am getting told "Oh, your pictures are way too similar" - so here I go, and tried something new. And I am kinda happy with the result!
The window I used was a big velux window at my room, and as a background I used my large 105cm silver reflector, using the black side.
Today I am gonna tell you a little bit about what I use when I am shooting on location. I am not a pro photographer with a lot of lights such as umbrellas, softboxes, beautydishes etc - I LOVE using the natural light.
Here is my stuff lined up:
My old Nikon D100 camera
Nikon SB26 flash + batteries (from TIGER) and my two radio triggers from
Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro VR NANO lens
Sigma 70-20mm f/2.8 HSM APO lens
Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens
Hairspray (if the model needs a little burst to set the hair the right way ;))
