Studio shot of nostalgic office

Lighting the scene – get behind the curtain with Kurt!

Being a fine art photographer takes me to many places, including the studio.  Here is a simple image of a desk one might see in years past I was shooting for a client.

Kurt Johnson shows how a single image is made

There’s more going on than some people might realize here.  I have a studio light firing over my right shoulder, a bounce to the left, some natural light coming from the ceiling, and my phone lighting the duck in the scene that was getting lost.

It’s a lot of fun in the studio figuring out how to make the image I have in my head!
