Lighting Practice - Part III - FIRE Sessions!
This is the last of three blog posts about recent lighting practice I've been doing for firefighter portraits
Fire sessions will be a new type of add-on session I'll be providing for my firefighter portraits. You read that right.....FIRE sessions! What kind of firefighter portraits wouldn't be complete without adding real FIRE into them?!
I learned how to do these by attending a workshop held by professional family/child/newborn photographer Sandy Puc. Two of the instructors at her workshop were Travis Gadsby and Craig Stidham. Travis is a professional Photographer out in Idaho & owner of Silverlake Photo Accessories (high quality backdrops, floors, and other photographic accessories), and Craig is a professional high fashion & senior Photographer in Texas.
Travis was holding a fire session workshop with Craig assisting him. Since they both knew I'm a volunteer firefighter & was attending Sandy's workshop tour, Craig gave me a call well in advance of Sandy's tour asking if I'd like to stand in as the model for Travis' workshop. How could I say no??! So I brought all my fire gear and some tools to the workshop, and I learned how to do these fire sessions!
Well, I asked some guys at Mebane Fire Department if they'd be interesting in doing some fire sessions with me so I could put what I learned to action. I think I had a line up of guys before I could even finish describing exactly what this was all about!
& yes....these fire sessions involve REAL fire during the picture!
