What do you do when you are living where it’s cold and dark outside for months every year but you desperately don’t want to give up photography? Well, light is to a photographer what paint is to the artist, and therefore, one solution is to stay indoors in you own cozy apartment and create all the light that you need by getting some studio lighting!
After being really inspired when my colleague Tony brought his gear over to let me try it out, I decided to get my own equipment. Yesterday was the first time I unpacked everything and started to experiment while I was having time on my own as my girl had gone to work! It’s not that easy to get the hang of it, especially when you have to be both behind and in front of the camera, but I managed to come up with two self portraits as a start.
