Studio Lighting: Continuous Fluorescent – Part 1

The latest in my videos on my studio lighting setups is continuous fluorescent lights. I’m still working on the photos and video but I have a sample for you, plus more for VIPs! For these photos, I had limited space (I was in my bathroom!), so my smaller set of continuous fluorescent lights worked perfectly. More photos and the videos will be up later this week so be on the lookout on my Facebook page or check back on my site!

What Did I Really Do This Week? – November 22, 2013


I started out the week with some adventuring! I posted photos throughout the week – like this one.
 
I showed you one of my inspirations in a video.
 
Chick at Nite this week was from my Modern Vintage series and the SnapChick Friday Morning Rewind was from my 2011 holiday shoot.
 
I did one VLOG, while I was very cold and on top of a mountain!

What Did I Really Do This Week? – November 16, 2013

Here’s what’s been going on this week…
 
I featured a viewer in my latest Behind the Artist video – Cocoon Imaging. You can find his Flickr gallery here if you’d like to see more of his work.
 
I did a big Question-and-Answer session, where I talked about everything from backdrops to holiday traditions and my orange couch!
 
The SnapChick Friday Morning Rewind was from a shoot two years ago – on commercial photography. There were three posts associated with this shoot. You can jump through them with links in the each of the posts.
 
I started something new… Chick at Nite. I’ll be bringing back some of my older videos on popular or just fun topics!
 
I posted a couple VLOGs this week too – I talked about my experience with the Girl Scouts and getting my emissions tested… and retested!

What Did I Really Do This Week? – November 9, 2013

First Sunday was last weekend. I took my trusty Nikon 1 V1 and the 10mm f/2.8 lens downtown to a half-marathon. I wasn’t running; I just wanted to hang out and watch and take pictures.
 
I talked about the DCI in a video. If you’re curious about what the DCI is, you’ll have to watch the video!
 
The new Nikon Df was announced this week. I posted a video where I talked about my first impressions. I’ll have more to say on it too. You can find out more or pre-order the camera here.
 
Mixed lighting is something that we, as photographers, all hate, right? Well, I posted Part 1 of a video on mixed lighting. In Part 1, I talk about some tips for setting your white balance to deal with it.
 
Last week, I showed you all SlickWraps. In the video, I reviewed the product and showed you a bit how I put it on my iPhone 5s. This week, I got my hands on an iPhone 5c and made a video where I put a SlickWraps phone wrap on it. You can also find out more here!
 
A few weeks ago, I posted a video on my studio lighting. It was an overview. This week, I posted a video specifically about Speedlights – what they’re good for, what they aren’t so good for… and I showed you example photos throughout the video. I used some photos from previous shoots but I also did a new shoot. So the post has a sample photo for everyone, plus a gallery for VIPs and a video for them as well, where I explain some details of the shoot. You can also find Speedlights similar to those I used in the video here and here!
 
The SnapChick Friday Morning Rewind was from last year – a shoot where I posed with several cameras!
 
I posted a few VLOGs – one where I was being crafty, one where I talked about my new running shoes, and another where I took you on my afternoon run.
 
You can follow me on Facebook to keep up with what I’m up to, but you can get sneak peek at what I’m working on for next week in the video below…
