When working with photos or videos the correct white balance is essential to get natural looking images/video. But it's also important when you use presets to tint your images, if your base is not correct every time your presets will look different every time.

After using other products for years I used everything I liked and didn't like to get something that would be as close to perfect as possible. The result... the CableBlock.

There is a lot to say for powerful strobes. But always remember that now a days cameras have no problem at all with ISO200-400-800 or even 1600. Alle are perfectly usable in a studio setting. So although a 1000W strobe with spotlight sounds awesome in the studio it's unusable because even on the lowest setting you will break the X-sync which prevents most studio strobes to shoot above 1/125 of a second.

Today some more images shot with the Nanlite Fresnel on our own Geekoto strobes. LOVE that combination.

One (of the many) things I love about my work is that no workshop or shoot is the same. I actually never prepare my workshops or demos, this way I keep it fresh for myself but also for the attendees that visit our workshops regularly. This also means that I often listen to the questions the attendees have before the studio part starts (the Q&A) and base my workshop on those questions.

A background really makes the shot for me. I recently had a whole discusion with someone about how AI would replace backgrounds and no-one would ever shoot against backdrops anymore. I don't think I have to tell you guys I did not agree 😀

The look of the Fresnel is really hard to describe (that's why I use images), but it's almost immediately recognizable. Think about almost all the old black and white (and later color) images from the movie stars from the golden era and you immediately know what I mean right... well that era was dominated by the Fresnel look, you found them everywhere in studios. But now a days I hardly see them anymore. Mostly due to price but also I think because people just don't know the funny looking Fresnel.

We've been live streaming for as long as I can remember. It all started many years ago via special live-streaming software (YouTube didn't support live streaming at that moment) and a webcam. I would start in the morning with placing the webcam in the makeup room with the model, after that we took the same camera and moved it to the studio to show the photoshoot. All via 1 camera, and the cool thing.... people were staying online the whole day, interacting, sharing ideas and chatting with each other and me. Sometimes someone fell asleep due to time differences, but it was an awesome experience.

Today I'm sharing a video where I answer some of the questions about colourspaces that are often asked during workshops and can really confuse people.

I've been shooting Wibi Soerjadi for quite some years now. So I have a rather extensive collection of images in different outfits, poses etc. Over the years we have become good friends and I love to bounce off ideas to him on how to create art work that is usable and fitting for the artist but is obvious fake. I don't even try to make it photorealistic. Which doesn't mean I do my best to make it all fit "naturally", it's just a choice to make it more surreal. The challenge for me is to tell a story that fits what you see.

It's everywhere, and it's even worse than the .com hype. Even things that are so far away from anything even coming close to intelligence is labeled as AI just to ride the wave. But how do we use it creatively ?
