yesterday I featured some images and a video on how I captured my recent play in the studio with splash photography.

In the studio – Splash #1

In the studio – Dried flowers

This time I removed the light tent from the equation and played with bouncing the Speedlight off the white ceiling, to give a lovely dark and moody look to it. Dried leucodendron and hydrangea. Just because it can be brightly lit, doesn’t mean it has to be…lol ~ Julz

Should you get a strobe or speedlight? — Photofocus

This was a recent dilemma I faced. I currently have older Bowens strobes in the studio and while there is nothing actually wrong with them, the recycle time was too slow and I had found they were continually misfiring with my Sony a7R III. 25 more words Should you get a strobe or speedlight? — Photofocus

In the studio with new toys

So I bought myself a few new toys for Christmas and why not, I think I have earned them. Some I am still waiting on (My new studio strobes), but I also picked up a new Speedlight (Godox AD200Pro) and a light tent. So over the break I have been getting acquainted with them. These…
