书籍描述

内容简介
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.
