Photographing a Model

A few weeks ago on my photography course we were learning to use flash. One day our teacher brought along a model so he could show us “live” how it all works. Afterwards we all got to photograph sweet and lovely Jannica who kindly let me publish these photos.

I thought I’d add a “behind the scenes” shot so you could see how those two photos above were taken. So no studio, just our classroom. A flash with softbox on the right, another one with grid in the back and someone holding a reflector.

I hope you enjoy hearing about my studies every now and then.

I really like my photography studies so far. We do a lot of practical exercises, watch taken photos and get really great constructive feedback from our teacher. It’s wonderful to study in a group where everyone is really into photography. We all share the same passion and it doesn’t matter that otherwise we might be in totally different phases in our lives. Speaking of which, in my early thirties I’m pretty sure I am the youngest in the group. So great that nowadays it is ok to study at any age really. I’m also probably the least experienced in photography. Which is a bit intimidating since others seem to know so much already and for me many things are totally new. Luckily the atmosphere is very friendly and well, I will probably gain the most from this course then.

Anyways, yesterday we did some exercises using torches to see how different angles and directions of light affect the subject and I really liked this photo.
