In this vlog, I got to shoot with actor and model Christina Fuursted at 4 locations in downtown Los Angeles. We started early (7am) knowing that the sun would be very harsh and challenging if we left it any later. In the end, the bright sun helped to generate both failure and success during the shoot.
The first location demonstrates my failure to pay attention to the primary light source (the sun) resulting in pretty rubbish pics from a technical standpoint. [please keep watching I promise they get better!]
Luckily we hit our stride after that and after paying more attention to the light I was able to utilize it more effectively, including bounced light from reflective surfaces, to achieve really successful eye-catching pics.
A big thank you to Christina for participating in this vlog. She channelled her inner Viking to battle against the difficult conditions and it paid off with some epic new pics for her portfolio.
