One light, many jobs

It’s been one of those months that give lie to the phrase “off-season.” We are back from Dubai and finally over our jet lag, preparing for weddings and so much exciting stuff coming in April I can’t even stare at my calendar directly.

Here’s a shot from one of my workshops at Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai. The amazing staff there worked so hard for me … maybe too hard! I primarily teach how to get good results in any kind of environment, and they wrangled up a bunch of five-star hotels like The Sofitel Jumeirah Beach, but we found a way to make it difficult. Here, one light is doing triple duty — backlight on the couple, freezing the water drops in the shower, and providing the nicely formed silhouette. Best of all, no one got wet! Ok, I got a little wet.
