We've each been hooked up with two Radio Television Arts students from NSCC to help them out with their portfolio. I was matched up with Valentine Nkengbeza, who is focusing on being behind the camera as well as editing. Here are a few final shots that came out!
What I found the most useful in terms of on-location lighting was my trusty yoghurt container as a modifier for my flash. My flash was also attached to the end of a broken light stand that I kept, which helped to direct the flash while hooked up to pocket wizards and such. I spent a whole day editing these images, I'm surprised my eyes didn't burn into the back of my head.
I just had a shoot with my second RTA student, whose name is Frankie Hutchings, focusing on radio production!
I couldn't even tell you how many times I made her flip her electric blue hair. I don't have too much hair myself so I pretty much get every person who has long hair in front of my camera to spend 30 minutes flipping it until their neck gets sore. BUT it was super worth it, I will have more on-location/studio images of Frankie to post soon!
It's been a crazy first year of being a photography student at NSCC, after going to Dalhousie and hating every minute of it to now thriving and having the knowledge and tools to make the images in my head actually exist. Holy crap.
