Amanda Coulter’s studio photoshoot was shot right after we finished filming her rooftop video. We came downstairs and proceeded to do a studio photoshoot and the transition was very easy!
Set up… or more to the point, lack there of, was very simple!
Panasonic Lumix GH3
Lumix 12-24 f/2.8 IS lens
Lumix GH3 battery grip
Panasonic FL360L flash
32” shoot through umbrella
By keeping the same lens on the camera as I did when I was shooting the video, there was practically no transition work needed. I simply adjusted my white balance, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and I was ready to shoot! It is so quick and easy to simply use the Panasonic FL360L flash with the Lumix GH3 because they wirelessly sync together. No need for expensive pocket wizards here!
Studio shoots can be very easy to edit afterwards, so with simply a little bit of Adobe Lightroom I adjusted my levels slightly and I was done! You don’t have to spend hour and hours of your time in post production. The more you shoot the more you learn and the more you learn the more you can get in camera what you want in the image. Use your time exploring, shooting, having fun and creating your art. Leave the countless hours in front of a computer to graphic designers.
Next week we’ll dig into part 2, the rooftop fashion video. Don’t forget to leave me any questions or comments below.
