I’m not that good 🙂
But thanks to David Hobby who publishes the wonderful Strobist blog I am now.
David has always been the go-to-guy when it comes to flash photography and this shot proves he’s the master of magic light.
Shooting black skin, especially against a black background means you’re going to need at least three lights and lots of time to get it right. A flash meter is a must and so is a ton of equipment.
David shot this portrait with one light and I bet you can’t figure out how he did it. I give you a clue that yes there are a couple of reflectors involved but where the heck is the light source? Go to the Strobist site to find out.
Simply amazing portrait photography that anybody could do after reading David’s blog.
This made my day 🙂
