Having been learning photography for two years, I was only able to rely on natural light to take photos on subjects or people. Natural lights can provide a source to bring the natural beauties of subjects or people out, but it is hard to control.
I realized the in order to get a light source which I can control I need to have a photo studio. I purchased a set of backdrops including stand, soft boxes, umbrella boxes, etc. I spent entire weekend to set up based on the instruction and some videos from YouTube. I moved around the lights, also tried white and black background. Using remote control and 10s exposure delay, I was able to take Experimental portraits under studio lights. I also saw the Transformation in the distributions of the lights and shades when I switched the background’s color.
In this process, I was both model and photographer.
It was fun!
