I am sure everyone remembers their first time in an actual studio with actual studio strobes. I sure do. It was as if this whole new world had been opened up to me and my work just instantly felt better. It probably sounds really weird but when I began shooting with studio strobes I began to create work that I felt was within my personal aesthetic.
Something I have found very fun is making objects seem much larger than they are. These toys are so incredibly detailed that it almost seems like a waste to not show what the artist put in to them.
Another fun thing I learned while shooting these dudes is that cameras actually have shutter speed that syncs correctly with strobe. No I didn’t add a cool bottom gradient to the second photo. That is my shutter lagging behind the light. (I cropped it out of the first photo) So if you are using strobes for the first time and your camera doesn’t automatically sync… maybe look it up.
