Controlling the Light in Central Park

Click on Image to Enlarge

Yesterday's Westscott/B&H Sammon Shootout in NY's Central Park was a blast, not to mention a huge success.

We spent the afternoon seeing the light and controlling the light – controlling the light in this case with Westcott reflectors, diffusers, Scrim Jim's and my Lighting Tote.

Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots. Great fun and great learning!

We made a video of the event. Soon come. Stay tuned to my blog for info.

Thanks to Westcott's John D. Williamson and Dave Piazza for all their help and expertise. A big thank you also goes to B&H's David Brommer. He is in one of the pictures. Can you find him? Post your answer here!

While I was busy teaching and taking behind-the-scenes images, the photographers were getting great pix. Check this out.

Here is an article on Seeing the Light that I think you will enjoy.

More on seeing and exploring the light in my books, Exploring the Light and Studio and On-Location Lighting Secrets.

Explore the light,

Rick, your video tip about your on location lighting kit has sound but no video. Snow Leopard, Firefox. Thought you might want to know. I'm going to order this kit, BTW...looks GREAT!

By the way, David Brommer is behind the model on the bottom image holding a small reflector and Joey Quintero is on the right hand side holding the large reflector.

Hi Rick,

I wanted to thank you, John, David,and Westcott for a very informative shoot out in central Park. I learned a great deal from it as I am sure everyone else did. How do we post a few images from that day to this blog?

Thanks again
