Warning please do not try this without the proper safety measures. After Rob Woodcox broke into the Phlearn studio, he literally lit it on fire! Not only did he bring the heat, he shared some great Insights on being a conceptual surreal artist.

 

Sometimes it’s just fun to make a mess. We had wanted to play with paint for a while, and came up with this concept to create shoes splashing and blending with paint.

Lens Flares can be a great way of adding pizzazz to an image, but only when used correctly. Bare Bulb + Shot Into Camera = Lens Flare Goodness

 

For the this extreme wide Angle tutorial we will discuss using an ND Filter, Lighting Diagrams that work, and provide you all with the finished image.

 

The key for this photoshoot was to match two different Lights consisting of our strobe matching to the light already underneath the bridge.

Having a prop or second subject for your subject to interact with can make posing a lot easier. In this case we had neither, but our model was able to interact with her own Reflection. This made it easier for her to pose naturally.

We’ve wanted to do a pinup shoot for a long time, but we also wanted to make it stand out from all of the other pinup photos out there by adding a concept to it. Join us behind the scene.

 

Yesterday we took you through our process in coming up with the perfect lighting for a portrait of Chris, Phlearn’s CFO, and today we’ll be taking you through the steps we took in Photoshop to bring our final image together!

 

For an editorial-Style headshot, we decided we wanted lighting inspired by the likes of editorial photographers such as Martin Schoeller. We had to go through about five different lighting setups before we finally found one we really liked!

 

When shooting a Composite, it’s always important to start out with your Background. This gives you the framework of what your image will look like and how your subject will interact with their surroundings.
