Nadine and the Rogue snoot

In todays blogpost some images we shot with our model/stylist and allround cool girl Nadine.
The backdrop is our Graffiti door from ClickPropsBackdrops.

I’m using our Rogue snoot here on a Nissin speedlight.
To get an extra “nasty” edge to the light I did not use a diffusion panel inside the gel holder.
You normally use this to get a more rounder “nicer” quality of light (and most of all softer), all things I didn’t want for this shoot.

So lets take a look at the images and what I changed during the set.

The first image was shot with just the snoot on a pretty wide setting.
I love the harsh quality of light in the center and the softer edges, it really gives the light a dual personality if you know what I mean. And for this setup I really liked that almost Rock and Roll lighting.

However for the next two images I decided to open up the shadows.
I’m using the omnidirectional dome from our Rogue magnetic system here with a blue gel. You just place it in the same line as your main light source and meter it a few stops below the main light.

I really love the effect.

And with Rock and Roll lighting…. we need some black and white.

And a guitar…..

Umbrellas are awesome…. are they ?

In todays video I’m working with our Rogue fibreglass umbrella and show you some cool things you can do with it.

You can order the umbrella kit via www.frankdoorhof.com/shop or your favourite camerastore that sells Rogue products.

Building a complete set with lensflares and flags.

I love building mood in a scene.
It can be done with color, a lens flare, styling etc. but for me there always has to be something “extra” in the shot.
In todays video I show you how we build a rather complex but awesome lighting setup during a workshop with our model Felisa. I think you’re gonna love this one.

How to shoot tethered to the iPad Pro and the workshop smoke

In this episode I take you behind the scenes during the workshop Smoke with our model Linda.

Because we also get a lot of questions about how to shoot tethered to the iPad I’ve also included a segment explaining what I use to shoot tethered but also how we get the images on the studio screens.
