January 29th, 2011 - Lighting techniques with Frank Veronsky

Lighting techniques with Frank Veronsky | Nikon D40 | 35 mm f/1.8 | f/2.8 | ISO 200

I spent my morning with a number of other photographers learning lighting techniques at Frank Veronsky's carriage house studio in Belle Meade. Frank spend two hours ( maybe more ) teaching us how to make the best of available light and the proper use of reflectors. Frank has been a photographer for over 24 years and is an excellent teacher.

One of the photographers brought his daughters with him. They were gracious and patient, posing for our eager cameras. This is the one I chose as the best of the set of 100 or so. You can see some of the others in my image gallery here.

Natural lighting from the window on subjects right side with reflected light from the white wall to the subject lefts. Hot light from above with most of the leaves closed to focus light onto a narrow strip on the subjects face.
