Schillerska revisited..


Back at Schillerska, this time taking pictures of Linn’s Chinese classes. Will go back tomorrow to take some more. Here’s a few. These has been taken with long shutter speed (2-3s) and El Quadra.. There is still lots of strong yellow light and I’ll try to shield them some tomorrow using something big protective thingi. mm.. need more assistants. :) Developed using SPP and post-developed using Lightroom.  Doing develops this late isn’t always a recommended thing.  Hope I like it in the morning too.

One problem is the huge color temperature difference between room light and flash. Perhaps I need to get some gels.

    Oh! More shots from my favorite room! Lovely models, great photos!

  2. Thanks Ted, and this room is absolutely fantastic – a tad too early in the morning thou so prety dark outdoors. The BW shot has a little too much flash feel even if I used 2.5s shutter speed.

    mmm.. Might consider higher ISO today.

    Carl, lovely pictures. I am a beginner, and I try to learn something from your pictures; I was wondering how did you make your subjects come out so sharp? When I try long shutters speeds, people come out all blurry in them.

    Thanks and if you organize a class in the USA, sign me up!

    • Hi Kay, well. It’s a question about talking and breathing – and of course light. You have slow light and fast light. :) The slow light is the ambient overall light that is all around. It should be as dark as possible as it then gives less exposure on face. Less exposure means less movement. But only dark where things can move. So a background can still have lots of it, if it’s not moving.

      Also you need to use a tripod. Then you have the fast light – that’s your flash, internal or external. In my case my Elinchom Quadra. When the fast light hits the face it will freeze – even if you have a long exposure. And only if face is shielded from other strong light.

      Now, I tried to turn off all light hitting their faces and result was boring, so I turned everything on again and experimented with what my quadra could do to enhance. Also, with room fully lit I had to make everyone sit extremely still. 1s still. :) I put my quadra behind the pillar on some shots and it will only freeze the back of their heads and no big win for me but they all managed pretty well to sit still..

      I had some pep talk in order to make that 1s as still as possible – and I took a few shots without moving light or camera – in case a face in one shot would work better in another.

      Long explanation and I have no idea if I made sense. Anyways. I’d love to come over one day and have a class! Perhaps future will allow. :)

    Aha! Now I know the concept of fast lights versus slow lights – I will definitely try it out this weekend and see what results I get. Thank you Carl.
