Too much snow jails you

This is what 40+ cen­time­tres of snow looks like when you are stuck inside. It looks and feels like jail. In this shot I tried to cap­ture ‘being snowed in’.

Photography portrait studio lighting for beginners — Photo podcast #33

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #33 talks about set­ting up a begin­ner pho­tog­ra­phy por­trait stu­dio. In this pod­cast we dis­cuss using dif­fer­ent types of flash sys­tems as great choices for in stu­dio por­traits. We talk about using small portable flashes, pack and head sys­tems and monoblock flash heads. We also touch on the acces­sories that you’ll need includ­ing a flash meter, umbrel­las, slaves, pc cords etc. Although the empha­sis is on inex­pen­sive stu­dio setups, any of these setups are likely to serve both tra­di­tional and dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phers very well for years to come.

Due to the length of this pod­cast we’ll skip photo of the week this time around.
