One Light Photography | Ian Spanier

Sometimes One Light is Enough

Confusing right?

I’ll admit that sometimes on set it’s about the “show” that you need to put on for your client. What I mean by this, is that there are times that having lots of equipment around and assistants constantly moving becomes a necessary part of showing your client that you are more than just a monkey that presses a button. That’s all fine and good, but sometimes you can say a lot more with one light on a c-stand, than a cube truck full of gear.

All too often photographers these days think they need tons of equipment to make a good image. This can get real expensive. If you think about lighting, it’s usually a case where we are trying to replicate what the sun does, after all, what is the sun but one light!

Early in my career I would walk around taking note of how the sun looked different at different times of day, weather conditions, and how it reflects off different surfaces. From this exercise, once I had my hands on lights, it was an easier step to sort out how to recreate these natural and unnatural occurances.

As my career has grown, I often find the need to use at least two lights, often I want to keep it simple, but the job calls for a need for a fill light, or a hairlight, or a highlight here or there, even at times, just a need to open up a room. Regardless of this, when I can, I often will challenge myself to go to a shoot with only one light. I’m not one to fall into routine, making photographs is supposed to be fun, remember? Anyway, I get bored doing the same set ups all the time.

The sun is one light. what do we learn from this?

what light does

When we look at the sun, be in bright and shiny, behind clouds, reflected off surfaces, coming up or going down we can learn a lot. There’s an emotional quality to light- and understanding how to control it will lead you to better images.

the properties of light

Light takes many different forms- many of the words we need to work with are: soft, hard, specular, warm, cold, direct, indirect, and diffused.

how to manipulate light

When it comes to manipulating light- we have many tools to do this, many different companies make everything from reflectors to umbrellas, grids, snoots, octabanks, softboxes, scrims and more. If we study light in different scenarios we can learn to mimic the feel of light- and if you take the time to test, you can have all the tools at hand when you need them.

Benefits of one light photography

Don’t get bogged down by the gear.

Nothing beats having everything you need at your disposal- but that’s not always possible. Sometimes all you have is your camera. Learning to work minimal ONLY helps when you have everything you need.

When working with artificial light, one light can be enough.

Having one light solutions to work with benefit your speed, ability to solve problems, and work in tough environments with never having to say you can’t.

Challenge yourself

I love to make mistakes- just not in front of clients. Challenging myself regularly only makes me better- and when things go wrong, and they will- I have solutions.

Here’s a series of images that I created using one light along with the story behind them, how each was set up. What you will find is that inside or outside, you can make so many different looks from just one light source…just like how available light works in its many forms.

 

  1. Jim Cummings, Actor/writer/director shot for The Wrap. With celebrity portraits, I always assume I will have 2 minutes. So I like to keep things simple unless it’s pre arranged we will have a lot of time. For this portrait done before an interview at The Wrap’s offices, I used a very easy, and simple set up. The idea is to create what Irving Penn made famous which is called “North Light” essentially light being diffused- or spread out, and bounced off the sky. When shooting with a large octa, it’s a bit more directional- but the double baffles inside the octabank soften the light. The advantage of a strobe here is being able to better freeze motionian spanier, jim cummings, photography workshops, fisheye connect,
  2. For this image shot for Danskin clothing company- the original plan was to shoot the model in the street jumping rope. The sun however was at it’s highest point in the sky and we had a huge shot list to get through. This was before high speed sync- which has helped but still not completely beat out the power of a bright sun (unless you have a lot of lights). Rather than fail miserably, I needed a quick solution. We found a space between two buildings and using a strobe and a small octadome, I was able to control the light and create the feel the CD wanted- which was essentially a mid/post workout shot.
  3. Portrait of Ex-Isreal Army Soldier. For my personal project Right Next Door I have approached the entire series with the challenge of only using one light. Unlike my typical work- which is generally technically heavy, this was a means to push myself. By relying on one light I don’t have a way to directly manipulate the light- so I fire the strobe into a wall or ceiling- which ideally is white and that spreads the light around the room and on my subjects. ian spanier, right next door, fisheye connect, photography workshop
  4. Actor Andy McDermott asked me to create an image of him as a secret agent/James Bond type. Shooting in a parking garage- we took to a tight stairwell. With my assistant holding a Small Strip Bank on a Photoflex LiteReach pole, horozontally, on my subject- flaring it slightly toward camera to take some of the light off the wall.  ian spanier, andymcdermott, fisheyeconnect, photography workshop

 

FROM one light comes many options

More examples of one light photography. The main point here is that with different modifiers you can create a different feel or look to your lighting.

(NOTE ON NASCAR) This is not limited to just indoors either- when working outside- making the sun your second light is always an option. I included this one just to show a case where we were only able to move around a NASCAR event with one light- in some cases I used the sun when I could- other times I went inside garages or between trailers to make my light the only light source.

ianspanier, nascar, fisheyeconnect

This one is also outside- but at night. I eliminated all other lights through a higher shutter speed.

Is it the sun or not?

The one point I want you all to walk away from this with is that whether the sun or an artificial light source, making images made with one light should be as seamless as those that are actually lit by the sun- and those that are not. Feel free to guess here.

Fashion Photography Lighting | Lou Freeman Workshop Summary

Fisheye Connect is excited to showcase Lou Freeman’s recent Conceptual Fashion Photography Lighting Workshop! Freeman’s workshop took place in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, near the scenic border of North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. In this hands-on 2 and a half day workshop, students embarked on the process of developing an entirely new and more complex eye for conceptual fashion photography lighting, design and style.

This class was designed for anyone wishing to create more conceptual portraits for their personal or professional level photography needs. They explored the process of learning and interacting with natural and studio lighting solutions for conceptual portrait photography and fashion photography. In the following pictures from workshop attendees, you will be able to see just a taste of what they were able to accomplish! Take a look at their action packed days.

The class began with a lecture on Conceptual Portraiture and Fashion Photography Lighting.
This was followed by hands on studio lighting set up and one on one shoots with models. Lou worked with the models and workshop attendees to capture the best images possible. She gave 100’s of posing, styling and shooting tips while everyone was on set. You can see some more of these fantastic pictures on Lou Freeman’s Facebook Page!

Students worked with Lou while setting up studio light on location to achieve wonderful fantasy lighting “looks”. Lou first shot to set an example, and then worked with each student and the models as they experimented and shot on their own.

Each student felt what it was like to make art and fashion for portraits. They learned about ambient and studio light on location, interesting thoughts on camera settings, and creative posing ideas to deliver the best look for the style, clothing and message of the shoot. Students left with lots of new images to work with in each situation!

On the second day, Freeman began with a change in direction to a new lecture on Conceptual Portrait and Lifestyle Photography lighting. Workshop attendees were constantly learning!

Following the lecture, there was a demonstration of headshot and beauty lighting in the studio. She focused on understanding the subtle differences and names of the lighting, posing and styling for each genre.

Moreland Photography, Mike Moreland, Fashion Photography, Creative Lighting, Photography lighting, conceptual photography, roswell photographer, Atlanta Photographer

Taking what they learned, they then got to practice with a live demonstration! Lou advised and assisted in directing attendees to achieve the best lighting, posing, camera and lens choices.

Each student felt what it was really like to direct, light, and conduct a smart creative portrait, headshot and lifestyle photography session.

Moreland Photography, Mike Moreland, Fashion Photography, Creative Lighting, Photography lighting, conceptual photography, roswell photographer, Atlanta Photographer

For the big finale,  Freeman and her workshop attendees sat down as a team, downloaded, and selected the best images to process and select artwork from the shoots. Freeman critiqued and reviewed with each student for retouching and artistic suggestions for final art pieces.

This action packed Fashion Photography Lighting Workshop was an amazing experience for all who attended! Coupled with the scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the experiences and creative opportunities for each attendee was limitless.

Best Atlanta Photography Studio Rental | Photoplex Studios

I, Mike Moreland, have found the best Atlanta photography studio rental service. I have been a Photographer for the past 30 years, and at the majority of my Creative Edge workshops I get asked about my professional studio space. Photoplex Studios is my unfailing studio rental recommendation.

For Photographers that operate out of their homes or have smaller studios like me, you know that usage is limited to smaller jobs. For this reason and many more, I use this Atlanta photography studio rental for my high profile Commercial Photography needs, when I have larger shoots, or am hosting a studio based Creative Edge Workshop. Whether I have needed to photograph models, actors, or just desire a more professional location for various shoots, Photoplex Studios has always provided.

Also, convenience and dependability is a huge part of why I enjoy using their services. If you are on the phone or in a consultation with a client and need space, the booking process is quick and efficient. I have been on many a phone call where a client asks me when I am available.

I met the owner, Mike Noah, some time ago and through working with him since I have realized that he is a great guy and extremely easy to work with.

I am not the only one who admires the studio and it’s many amenities. To name a few, Photo District News featured Mike Noah and Photoplex Studios in an article about membership photography studios, Lou Freeman uses this rental space for her workshops, and David Beckstead traveled from D.C. to use Photoplex Studios for his Dynamic Style Workshop. Overall, Photoplex Studios is an incredible deal and I personally recommend it to anyone in need of studio space and equipment.

KEH Camera : Trusted Used Camera & Photography Equipment Store

Moreland Photography is an avid supporter and lifelong customer of KEH Camera. Many of you may know that I, Mike Moreland and owner of Moreland Photography, have been a professional photographer for over 30 years. In addition to creating Fisheye Connect, I have also run my own workshop business for over 10 years. Both in and outside of these workshops, Photographers of all levels always ask me questions like: “where do you purchase your equipment,” or “are there any cheaper ways to obtain professional equipment?” KEH Camera is hands down the most reliable online used camera and photography equipment store. I have been a customer for many years. I found it necessary to write this blog in order to share some of my personal experiences and detailed information about this online service.

KEH Camera is the world’s largest online used photography equipment store and has served over a million photographers since their launch. They are comprised of dedicated experts and a large warehouses that allow them to meet the needs of a wide range of customers. KEH Photography Equipment uses a detailed and thorough 10 step inspection process that leaves each piece of equipment (from new to used) with a very specific grade. For each product listed, the higher the grade is, the closer to the original condition the product is.

 

KEH, Moreland Photography, KEH Reliable Used Photography Equipment, Mike Moreland, Photographer, Used Photography Equipment, Reliable Used Camera Equipment, Used Camera Lenses, Used Film Cameras, Used Photography Accessories, Atlanta Georgia Photographer

Every single product I have purchased for my company from KEH has been top quality professional equipment. From my close inspections, their products are always a couple of notches above the grade that they give them. But, the lower the grade, the cheaper in price the product is. I have always been price conscious, and don’t see the logic in purchasing a brand new product when a used one in flawless condition is much cheaper. Although you may find less expensive gear on eBay or other online store, KEH stands behind their equipment with an industry-leading 180-day warrenty giving you peace of mind on your purchase. Because of their incredible reputation and team of Photography experts, you can be confident that whatever you order is going to be in great condition. Another awesome perk is that they ship worldwide, so wherever you are, KEH can provide you with what you need.

Atlanta Scenic Fashion Photography Lighting Workshop

 

Fisheye Connect, Mike Moreland, Conceptual Portraiture, Actor Portfolio, Model Portfolio, Atlanta Workshop, Blue Ridge, Scenic Photography, Posing, Studio Lighting, Natural Lighting, Styling Workshop,Fisheye Connect is excited to offer an Atlanta Scenic Fashion Photography Lighting Workshop. This workshop offers an in depth look into conceptual portraiture, fashion photography, natural and studio lighting, posing, design, and styling. This interactive Atlanta Scenic Fashion Photography Lighting Workshop is open to Photographers that have basic knowledge of their camera and have some experience editing their images through Lightroom or Photoshop.

Lou Freeman is a photographer, a light stylist and a director…but most of all, she is an artist. On her infinite canvas, she paints with light, with color and with post design to reveal imagery that blurs the boundary between photorealism and abstract painting.

Moving fluidly from simple elegance to high concept, her art pushes the boundaries of photography and bends traditional lighting techniques to reveal the beauty, strength and sophistication of each person she photographs.

Freeman’s ability to inspire and surprise arises from her imaginative conceptualization, deft technical skills, and clear direction as she works with make-up artists and set stylists to create the stage on which she invites subjects to join her in the world of her envisioning.

Her captivating imagery connects audiences with iconic companies ranging from Ralph Lauren, the Coca-Cola Company and Lord & Taylor to Target, Hanes and Coors Light. Freeman reveals each brand’s essence and reinforces its cultural significance, compelling an emotional investment.

In her interpretation of the Americana that epitomizes Ralph Lauren, she takes us below the surface of mere sentimental nostalgia and invites us into the peaceful beauty and rough-hewn elegance of a lifestyle connected to its origins. To express a contemporary city-style vibe, whether in fashion or food, she ramps up the energy, drawing us into the vivid high saturation of an HD world, where we experience the luxe and intensity of millennials on the move. The advertising world has long taken notice, honoring her genre transcending talent with OBIE and ADDY awards.

This stunning range is also reflected on the pages of the world’s leading Fashion, Lifestyle and Architectural magazines, from Vanity Fair, Glamour and Harper’s Bazaar Italia to Architectural Digest, Metropolitan Home and Modern Bride.

Whether reinterpreting Steam Punk and Victorian Fantasy or inventing her own world, her palate and palette are equally diverse and far-reaching. Her landscape is unlimited, happily leading us on a journey into tropical lushness, dipping us in glistening golden glamour, distancing in steely industrial coolness and abandoning us on a barren beach almost devoid of color contrast. Yet we’re drawn in by her uncanny ability to reveal the light in her subjects’ eyes, whether they’re looking through the lens, staring soul-to soul, or gazing toward a distant vision, unseen by the viewer.

In a groundbreaking move, Playboy Magazine made her only the second woman to shoot for them. Over a 12-year period, her instinctive sensibilities ensured women had a voice in the work that portrayed them, creating images with an edge of extreme femininity and glamour that intentionally incorporated each woman’s individuality.

This skillful insight transformed the genre and launched the evolution of boudoir elegance. High-profile entertainment clients such as Cee Lo Green, Niki Taylor and Jamie Foxx and sports greats Joe Montana, Tiger Woods and Evander Holyfield also seek her out, entrusting their portraiture to her unique on-set styling and skilled post design concept completion. Through her lens, the seeming- paradoxes of strength, confidence and tenderness is often glimpsed, offering subtle insight beyond their public persona revealing authentic and sometimes humorous moments.

Throughout her international career, Freeman has honed her skills and evolved as an artist. Fortunately for aspiring photographers and lighting designers who may otherwise be daunted by a professional of her stature, she likes to share. Recognized as a subject matter expert for Canon and G-storage drives, she is a sought-after speaker who generously imparts her knowledge and craft internationally. Freeman has taught classes, led workshops and delivered presentations at universities and leading industry conferences such as PPA Imaging, APA, PDN PhotoPlus and the 39-city Look Fabulous Tour. Some classes are also easily accessible via online videos and apps for iOS and Android that she designed.

Lou Freeman’s Atlanta Scenic Fashion Photography Lighting Workshop will be an enlightening experience for all of those who participate. For more information visit https://www.fisheyeconnect.com/
