Lara Jade, Cheap Camera Challenge



Featuring Lara Jade - world-renown fashion photographer - takes on the cheap camera challenge...we have a professional mode, haute couture clothing and a makeup artist...but we've taken the camera cheapness to a whole new level! The An Pan Man camera (Bread Superman camera) has a stunning 0.3-megapixels and awful features. Add that to the fact that Lara is only in Hong Kong for a layover - she has 6-hours to get 6 different images from 3 different looks - and we have an epic-fashion-photoshoot-on-the-cheap challenge!

NASTY CLAMPS

Lil' Bit Nasty Clamp

A while ago, I got my hands on couple of Nasty Clamps for review, and I have not been able to put them down since. The Nasty Clamps are a very simple idea that is extremely well executed and also made right here in Oregon.

Flash Facts – Bounce Flash


One flash rule to remember is that the larger the light source, the softer the light. The smaller the light source, the harder the light. This means that the larger soft light will have softer edges in the shadows and the smaller hard light will have a more defined edge at the shadows. This technique also works very well with ceilings.
