Today a shot from a few weeks ago, shot during a workshop with the topic story telling and using props.
Shot with a wide angle from a low angle to add some extra drama, and the expression from Loes helps a lot of course.
I love visiting abandoned places, actually when someone shows us around and they bring us to the tourists spots I also like that but I get a real kick out of seeing stuff that you normally would not.
During our stay in New York we had two amazing days where we were shown around by 2 of our friends.
The first day was a nice drive to the Stone Pony (which I quickly labelled as the stoned pony but that’s a different story) and some other sights (which was awesome) the second day we visited an abandoned mental institution near New York. Annewiek checked us in in facebook which she better couldn’t have done seeing some of the reactions like “finally”, so don’t worry we were not admitted 😀
It was a huge area we could walk around but we were not able to get in the buildings which was a shame, we did try (of course) but as soon as we walked towards a door we heard the sirens of the local security which asked us for our IDs and what we were doing, because I saw this as a warning we decided the outside would also be ok to shoot.
The lighting was very harsh but I think we got some nice images anyway, so today I share this album with you guys.
Today some images from our model Chantal shot during a small flash workshop.
In this workshop I mostly use one strobe (system flash) and some Rogue flash benders.
It’s very cool to show people how easily you can modify the light with these very simple (but awesome) tools, it really chances the way people look at the small flash system and realize that you can create stunning images with these little strobes, and you don’t even need a lot of them.
