Month in Review: June

Today is the last weekday of the month. Hence, we will dedicate today’s post to revisiting this month’s most popular stories.

As usual, we started with a Light Shaping Tool of the Month piece. This time we talked to Swedish photographer Jessica Lund who specializes in portraits of artists and musicians. Jessica’s tool of choice is the Giant Silver, so if you are curious about that, you should definitely read what she has to say. We also introduced our free webinar on studio lighting around the same time. The webinar was recorded and is still available here in case you missed it.

The talented, Emmy-winning gang at Stillmotion was featured on our blog in May with an instructive video on how to use studio lighting to create different moods on the video set. They returned in June with a new video in which they thoroughly explained how to make a filmed interview look like a classy, feature-length documentary.

Other highlights include our interview with Dutch photographer René Kramers, who stressed the importance of planning your shoot; our piece on Spanish documentary photographer Ramón Vaamonde, who brought strobes to the Sahara, and Angelo Antelmi’s portraits of Italian antique dealers. Also, we published a interview Tim Wallace, who gave a detailed description of how to light a muscle car.

Last but not least, we unravelled the first batch of images that you, our blog readers, had submitted to our request for images to show in our booth at this year’s Photokina trade fair. We honestly cannot think of a better way to round off the month than that!

On Monday, we will return with yet another Light Shaping Tool of the Month piece. This will include 200 portraits. (No, we are not joking.) See you then!
