The 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!

Post Production

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.

    Excellent shots. I’m guessing you meant you used the 12-35mm panasonic lens and not a 12-24.

      Thanks John! Yes, apologies for the typo, the lens was the Lumix 12-35 f/2.8 IS.

    What batteries did you use in the flash. Hab]vent tried the flash in an umbrella yet, but love the combo

      Hello Ron, I use standard rechargable Energizer batteries that I purchased at Best Buy.

    Well done! The light is softer than I expected from a shoot through umbrella, so I’m guessing that some of the lights were bouncing around the studio. I usually can’t stand the umbrella look, but this looks great.

      Thank you Joe! My shooting wall is slight gloss which gives it some nice bounce. But honestly the softness really comes from the flash and the umbrella. When i used shoot through umbreallas with my old Alien Bee strobes I didn’t get the same quality as this. I have the flash zoomed out to 24mm so that it nicely spreads the light over a wider area giving a softer feel.

    first of all i love your work and your posts are very informative. one question though: you listed the lens you used for the shoot as being a 12-24mm but the hyperlink takes you to a 12-35mm 2.8 lumix lens. did you type the lens specs incorrectly? i could find no such lens in Panasonic’s lineup.

      Thank you so very much James!! I greatly appreciate it! My apologies for the typo, the lens was the Lumix 12-35 f/2.8 IS, not a 12-24, sorry about that. Thanks again and stay tuned for a lot more posts coming soon!
