9780134084176: Studio Anywhere: A Photographer's Guide to Shooting in Unconventional Locations

The concept for Studio Anywhere came from photographer Nick Fancher’s experience trying to build model shots for his portfolio. As a young professional photographer with a family, he didn’t have the money to rent out a studio, and he wasn’t familiar with all the areas around some of his models’ locations (when he was traveling, for example). So he started shooting in the models’ living spaces. Each place was different–a penthouse here, a dark art space there–and they all forced him to think a bit outside the box and seek out photographic opportunities. He also had to carry little gear, traveling light.

All this gave him the idea for this book, which highlights what one can do with a bit of portable gear, a grasp of photographic basics, and a lot of imagination in order to see the possibilities in any given situation. In Studio Anywhere: A Photographer’s Guide to Shooting in Unconventional Locations, Nick will cover different “studios” that can be created anywhere, from a basement to a street, from an office to a park, from a living room to a backyard. And he will do all this with just the following gear: 1¿3 Speedlites, a foam core board, a grid for the flash, an umbrella, an ND filter, and gaffer tape.

And because his photos have a unique “look” to them, Nick will also include his post¿processing in Lightroom, with occasional “pro tips” as he jumps over to Photoshop for just a bit of heavier lifting in the digital darkroom.

Each scenario will include:

¿• A description of the shoot: the needs of the client, the shoot space

¿• A behind¿the¿scenes look at the space

¿• The unedited out¿of¿camera image

¿• A description of Lightroom work with accompanying screenshots of the

• Develop module

¿• The final image

Nick will also have a “Deconstruct this photo” thread running throughout the book (one for each studio section), which will help readers be able to better read photos (how many lights were used? what kind of modifier was used? where was the light placed?) in order to “reverse engineer” them, so that they can recreate similar lighting scenarios themselves. After reading Studio Anywhere, the reader will be inspired to get out and shoot in more “unconventional” locations, and will be equipped with the knowledge and know¿ how to do so.

Product Description:

What’s your definition of a photo studio? Is it a room with a white seamless backdrop or a cyc wall? Maybe it’s simply anywhere you’re in control of the lighting. In a perfect world, where every day is a breezy 72 degrees with partial cloud coverage, we would all have a 5,000-square-foot studio–and the entire catalog of B&H™ in our equipment lockups.

 

But the reality is that you may have an outdated DSLR with two decent lenses (which took you several years to save up for), and all you have at your disposal is an unfinished basement, your garage, or the empty conference room at your office. That’s where Studio Anywhere comes in. With photographer Nick Fancher as your guide, you’ll learn how to get portfolio-ready photos while working in some of the most problematic scenarios imaginable. Whether shooting a corporate portrait, a test shoot with a model, or a promo shoot with a band, you’ll discover that most of the time, there’s no need for an expensive studio–you just have to get creative.

 

Studio Anywhere is a resource for photographers to learn through behind-the-scenes photos and lighting diagrams from a range of photo shoots–but it doesn’t stop there. Because directing a photo shoot involves more than simply knowing how to wield a camera or process a raw file, Nick also lets you in on the aesthetic decisions he makes in his signature photos, inspiring you to develop your own vision. And, finally, he describes his Lightroom and Photoshop workflow so you can learn how to deftly navigate post-processing.

 

  • Shows how to create images with minimal equipment that is within reach of anyone’s budget
  • Takes you through the entire shoot, from concept to lighting to exposure to post-processing in Lightroom and Photoshop
  • Teaches how to build a portfolio without a dedicated studio space
