    In this case if the meter had been pointed at the camera it would have given the wrong exposure. Gavin wanted the correct exposure on the side of the face and if the reading was taken towards the camera it would not have given him that.

    Hi thank you for the video. Just one thing I want to comment on: when you’re metering for your exposure, I think you should point the light meter toward the camera ( of the direction where you’ll shoot from) that’s because the sphere calculates how the light falls (on a 3D object; like the sphere). I’d only point my light meter toward my lights to measure them separately (with the dome down) :). Thank you.

    Gavin uses a Canon MKII and 24 – 105 lens and it is a wireless trigger attached to the hot shoe.

    Thank you for posting this video, I was wondering what camera you were using with what lense and the component that is attached to the hot shoe is what? Thank you

    very nice effect just with a one light source . amazing results . and the model is so cute

  • By simonsgl, February 21, 2012 @ 1:29 am

    I’m not sure he answered your question very well there! The light he uses has what is called a “modelling light” built in to it. This is switched on all the time so you can see the effect the light source is going to have on your subject but it is not strong enough to take the picture with. When he takes the picture, the main flash bulb fires and thats the one that actually lights the subject for the photograph.
    Hope that is of help!

    Best tutorial I’ve seen in a long time. Straight to the point and not a whole lot of technical talk. Thanks

    So he should be ashamed because his experiences do not match your reality?
    Perhaps he has experiences that are radically different from yours.

    There are many fields where his viewpoint is well supported by fact.
    My field is Medicine. In my field, women in the field are significantly lower than women who are trained. Want to guess why? LOL!

    I dont know about the field of photography, but for Medicine, SuperMangn’s comment is well supported by data.

    Pretty sure the soft box is the flash. They usually have a constant light (as you can see) and a strobe/flash that is triggered wirelessly from the thingy on top of his camera when he takes a shot.

    the 50s was a style success though. as a fotographer you should accept that sexism and class go hand in hand..
