Notes – On Location with Jeremy Cowart (Kelby Training)

Notes from the kelbytraining.com video “On Location with Jeremy Cowart”:
  • Use shade color balance when outside regardless of light except when using flash.
  • Wide angle shot of woman: close to camera makes her look nice and tall.
  • Rent an off duty cop (full uniform and car) to come do security for big shot. Will keep a nice big radius around you.
  • Shooting downtown, look for spots where light is being reflected off of glass buildings.
  • Use a strobe from the same angle of the sun.
  • Hard light works best with beautiful people.
  • Super overblown works for life style vibe.
  • Don’t use a wide angle on a face.
  • Flattering light: above behind camera 45 deg angle.
  • Honeycomb grid inside beauty dish makes light fall off nicely.
  • Use reflective qualities of metal in background.
  • Try shooting down at a model on the floor or a table.
