It’s time for one of my all-time favourite things:
Buying more gear!
In 2020 I’m hoping to do a lot more “people” photography; portraits, on location shoots, candid shoots and things like that, and a lot of it will not be in a studio.
So, I need to think about how I’m going to bring the light that I want, to the place that I am. In practical terms: flash. Trouble is, flash can be harsh, intense, and not really produce the effect that I want, so over the course of the next few months I’m going to try and pick up a few more pieces of gear that will help me out, by taking the flash off-camera, diffusing the light, and possibly adding different colour to it as well.
Hopefully, this will let me get the effects that I am looking for, give me a bit to tell you about in terms of reviews, and get loads of images that I can show you that will be well lit, in focus, and sharp.
