Mixing light sources in the studio flash vs continuous lighting

Mixing lights can be awesome

And something we sometimes have to do! Because the location we are shooting in has some very strong lights, or maybe lights that cannot be taken out, or that just look interesting to include. There can be many reasons why to include lights that are in your set/location. So continue reading about mixing light sources.

In today’s video, I talk about how I included the studio lights in a photo with Claudia during one of the workshops.
I also explain the main lighting setup and show the results from that set.

If you have any questions feel free to drop us an email and who knows you will see your question answered in one of our next posts/videos.

Merry Christmas and a Happy 2024

Merry Christmas from the Doorhofs


The last few years will not go into history as happy times.
Still, we hope that everyone will have a peaceful Christmas and we wish you the best for 2024

For a workshop, we build a complete set from isolation blankets, in the Netherlands we also call them rescue blankets, used if victims get hot, or very cold.
The nice thing about these is that they are very cheap and have two sides: gold and silver. Yes, you probably remember the gold set 😀

Here you see a few of the results from the workshop with our model Claudia.
Ultimately, we decided to use one of these images for our Christmas card. It was hard to choose 😀
