Transcript of Notes for Photographers on the images in this book capture ... Taken using a Fluorescent continuous

  • Notes for Photographers on the images in this book This tome took several years to compile and I have used a variety of equipment to capture the images shown within. Including: Nikon D90 (APS C) and D610 (Full Frame), Fuji XT-1, X-Pro 1 and X100t (all APS C). My preference for using daylight over Flash or Studio equipment (despite having my own Studio at the time) shall soon become obvious!

  • If you guessed the description might contain the words “window” and/or “Natural light” you win a prize. Yes, I’m bored with it too! Nice pic though…. APS C 26mm 1/125 sec f/5 ISO 400 +0.7 EV Exposure compensation

  • A photograph of a photograph! The original was taken using a Fuji Instax Mini using the light from the Standard Lamp just visible in the image

    Female readers don’t care about the window behind my head. They’re busy hating Emma for having boobs that stay put when she lies down… APS C 50mm 1/100 sec f4 ISO 200

    Taken using 2 softbox equipped Studio Flash heads, one directly either side of the model. The left light set 2 stops higher than the right.

    You get a lovely soft, diffuse light from a window. I must try it sometime…. APS C 44mm 1/100 sec f4 ISO 400

    Nope, no windows here. Just a 500w Halogen DIY Worklight to the right at just below shoulder height. A weird thing to use but gives lovely sharp, angular shadows. Not really enough light from just one light for an APS C camera though. APS C 44mm 1/100 sec f/4 ISO 400

    It’s like this. when I took the first few images for this book I didn’t know much about Flash so I used windows because I could see what I was taking. I’m sorry, ok? APS C 35mm 1/100 sec f1.8 ISO 200

    Taken using just the bathroom light and a cranked ISO with my beloved Nikon 50mm f 1.8 Full Frame 50mm 1/50 sec f4 ISO 800
