ClearPlay Model Portrait

ClearPlay Model Portrait

Often photo opportunities come up very spur of the moment, so I always try to be ready with my “go bag” of my favorite and most versatile camera equipment.  I think in the coming weeks I will post a photo and description of what I have and how I carry it.

This model was doing a commercial for ClearPlay and I was asked to take a some still photos for use on their web site.  The lighting was all set up for their video work, which produced some nice, even lighting; but what I have found is that video lighting is often darker than what I prefer for still photos.  I increased my ISO a little and dropped the shutter speed down (since this was an adult that knew how to hold still versus little kids) and things turned out well.
