Lighting with Umbrella

Posted Jan 2019

Ah! Oh! AAAAhhh! EEEE! I couldn't believe it! Egads. O My. Oh Oh. I got to my gig this evening ~ at a Bowling Alley ~ so you can imagine how dark it was ~ well actually this one was Dark, but not nearly as dark as Some bowling alley gigs. And my Client took that into consideration! She showed up with a light for me, and I was told to set up right next to an outlet to use it. All Right!

But Wow! Blow me away! I felt knocked for a loop. Like How did this Happen?? I am Sooo Blessed! I've been feeling overwhelmed about Lighting All Week ~ and then This happens.

Who woulda thunk it, but my Client took out This Light!

I felt bowled over. I expressed my delight, and the Client told me that she understood. Because, and now Who Woulda Thunk it!, Because they're a Broadcasting Company! Oh.

Btw ~ you can see just how Wonderful her Big Professional Light is. In the forefront of the photo is a beige Chair. In front of the light that is directed by the umbrella. Pretty accurately described. But a couple of feet behind that are 2 more Chairs. They look dark gray in the photo, but they were really beige ~ just like the one in the forefront. But it isn't accurately described in the photo Because It's Behind the Umbrella.

affected in Photoshop

Posted Jan 2019

I've been trying to Photograph my Caricatures properly ~ so they wouldn't have to be affected After-Event. Last night's post showed this one to be the Closest to correct ~ the Closest to showing that I was drawing on White Paper. But it didn't look like This.

Tonight I did a good job of affecting it in Photoshop. I'm trying to avoid this sort of extra work by photographing it right in the first place, but no not yet. At least I might have a better handle on how to take my photographs so the levels will be most likely to be easily corrected in Photoshop.

But who knows ~ It's a different situation each time. Like these photos were taken in my studio. But tomorrow night I will be drawing at an Event in a Dark Bowling Alley Venue.

Event

Posted Jan 2019

I felt like taking it easy tonight. So I was just doodling around ~ wrote the word 'Event'. Then still doodling, I decided to turn it into a picture. Took the shape of a cotelydon. Decided to Photograph it and pull it into IPad to be Colored. I hadn't used the IPad in a while. Amazing how much you can forget if you don't use a medium for a while. Took a bit of effort afterall.
