For my current project I am trying to look at landscapes, but create them myself. This is partly due to the fact I don’t have that much time with work to go out to locations at the minute and I also want to practice my studio lighting.
The below image is my first image from this shoot. It was more for practice and get an idea of how I might want things to be. I only had my desk lamp and natural light for this one. There’s a lot of things that need work. I need to plan out what sort of scenes I want to create. I need more dynamic lighting (which was my plan anyway). I need to make more clouds and fix the one in the forefront… that thing is horrendous, aha. I also need to go out and shoot some new backdrops and/or paint some as well. The image in the backdrop at the minute was a quick one I found on the internet to test it out with. I wanted to get a feel as to what kind of backdrops I might want. I also need to work on the issue with reflections on the glass. I think that was mainly due to my window though so whenever I have my proper lighting set up that shouldn’t be an issue (hopefully!).
I’ll be updating this more as I experiment and progress through this project.
Images were taken on a Hasselblad H3D and a 28mm lens. That lens is beautiful.
