Spring flowers in the studio
Did a test with these spring flowers from the 28th street flower market.
I have bought some new lights (continuous lighting --Lite Panels and
an Arri instead of the strobe--Profoto). Of course, ironically, I try to get
the lighting to look like daylight. This is helpful when on set and the client
needs time to tweak things and I have to send out jpgs and wait back for approval.
That way we can just go right back to the image and not worry about the
sun shifting position or clouds or nightfall!
The narcissus had the most intense fragrance. Two days later our studio
manager basically said "it is either me or the flowers!" because the fragrance
just became too much.
