I really like this idea. Much easier than having to go out and shoot! (And I like post)

Seconded on the no composite images

I'm building a photo studio in my apartment.

What kind of lighting set ups do you have? Has anyone ever thought about running a strobe and a continuous light?

Exposure from the strobe will be hard to balance with the continuous light in both white balance and exposure value. For the continuous to show up it will have to be bright enough.

You're world renown. You should be able to create your own set ups. My school knowledge is shiit anyways right?

Thanks!

A sick photographer im friends with on Facebook recommended this. Its pretty much the best bang for the buck out there...but more then I was willing to spend. (because now I need a pocket wizard, stand, and maybe soft box) but ill bite the bullet.

I got natural skills and have a general idea about what looks good but there is still a lot for me to learn on the technical/commercial side. Art/Photography is some very deep shlt and its a lot of work if you want to be recognized.

I didnt go to school for photography, I took engineering/design which gave me other skills that help. But I want to know what the pro's know and think how they think so once I have this studio set up ill be devoting more time to learning the craft.

Anyway thanks for that info!

What do you guys use to edit your images? I'm been racking my brain trying to figure out how you get that white or yellow glowy effect. I use camera-raw btw

like so:


or:


is it just a lens flare?

I use Lightroom and Photoshop. The flare in the second shot was created by gabe. I'm going to assume photoshop. Maybe he has an action or he made it from scratch but there are a number of ways to go about getting that effect.
