Cody + One Light: Fitness Trainer Downtown Littleton

Other than simple on camera flash, my specialty for lighting these last few years has been limited to natural light from the sun. After all the sun is pretty good at creating some awesome light. ¬†After a few years of shooting weddings though and some in not the best lighting situations (ie dark indoor ceremony at a church or a reception hall) I’ve tried branching out. Of course as I research more about using different lighting techniques the more fun it is to experiment and I find more uses for it. Case in point: Cody and his muscles. For anyone wondering, the guy in these pictures is my brother Cody. If you couldn’t tell by the photos he is a personal trainer and spends a great deal of time in the gym. We decided it would be a fun idea to go out at night (in the freezing cold in the winter) and take these photos using a single light source- just to see what we could get. The cool thing about using a small light source as oppose to soft daylight is the shadows we could create which made it perfect for this particular situation. We had a lot of fun walking around downtown Littleton that night even though it was pretty cold. In case any of you ladies were wondering sorry but he is taken as you can see in the last picture- thanks Heather for coming along and helping out! Hmmmmm maybe I need to start working out.

I have been looking around http://www.volkelimageblog.com and really am impressed by the amazing content here. I work the nightshift at my job and it really gets boring. I have been coming here for the previous couple nights and reading. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been enjoying what I’ve seen and I look ahead to reading more.
