New Workshop! Lighting 3 | Advanced Off Camera Flash


BTS: Candyland | Tuesdays with Lauri

By Lauri L. on March 26th 2013

Today we will be taking a look at my photo, titled “Candyland”. We are going to take a look at how the photograph was lit, and then will move on to talk about how we can add some interest into our photographs that were shot in a studio against a “boring” white backdrop, by playing around with the colours, using textures, and creative blurs. Enjoy!
