Last week, my fashion photography class did our 7th in-class activity learning the techniques in creative lighting system combining both available/natural light and strobelight/artificial light. This technique is a technique I have used for several years now doing photography, and sharing this technique in shooting subjects in challenging lighting set-ups can be very useful and handy.
Adding an additional learning and experience for my students through selecting a male model for them to work with is a welcome idea that would enable them to differentiate the difference in shooting between a female and a male model. On what challenges they need to overcome and on the pros and cons of selecting between 2 subjects when taking photographs.
As usual, I made the activity interesting for my students... but more so... challenging yet enjoying. I made the activity into 2 parts asking them to shoot both outdoors and indoors so as to help them apply the learning I taught to them during the first few weeks of our course. The photo above shows our model in our outdoor set up, while the photo below shows him indoors being projected with the works of Max Hattler (Collision and Hattler: Nachtmaschine - Director's Cut)
Here are some more of the photos taken during our activities. Taken in 5 minutes after all the students finished each of their turns shooting.
