Fashion Fu

Today is a big day.  It’s the first official shoot that will become part of my Flash Fu book and DVD project. “Flash Fu” is my effort to use Speedlites to create virtually any type of lighting.  And in turn, it will become an instructional process that will guide other photographers through the levels of complexity in using Speedlites…much like martial arts training where the easy stuff is white belt level and the true masters can handle the difficult techniques at the black belt level.  Hence the “Fu” part.

Today’s shoot is black belt level. 🙂  I’ll be taking my team on location to shoot Urban Fashion with a model.  The technique used today:  mixing full sun, partial sun, and bounced ambient with speedlites — all in eTTL mode and controlled from camera using RadioPoppers and Av mode with exposure and flash exposure compensation to mix ambient and flash together.  It should be a fun challenge! I’ll post images when they’re done.

If you are stuck in a rut with your wedding photography or bored by doing the same things over and over, then it is time to clear your creative cobwebs and find a new direction in your photography by doing a wedding walkabout. The term “walkabout” is derived from the spiritual journey undertaken by Australian aborigines to “find themselves”. I’ve applied the term both figuratively and literally to my wedding program. If you are stuck in a rut, sometimes you need to step back, clear your mind and open yourself to new ideas and new directions. Take a little professional and personal walkabout to get recharged. I also literally apply this concept to every wedding that I do: I do a walkabout reconnaissance of the area, looking for unique, unexpected, dramatic, or cool spots to take the bride and groom and create my Urban Chic style of fashion inspired images. These serve to set my work apart from the competition and more importantly appeal to today’s brides. And you don’t need to be in a big city to create this look; the necessary elements appear everywhere, even in the most rural of areas.

So blow your creative didgeridoo and get ready for a walkabout to transform your wedding photography.
