I thought that the final project for camera works was due next week. Silly me! So I started working on the project, which is a test for bigger project that has been on my mind since we did the stop motion and painting with light. The project will involve demons, dreams and a woman. :D

Inspired by Bruce Gilden I decided to give a try with the flash a little closer. Basically I was carrying a Sunpak flash with the hot shoe trigger in one hand and using the on camera flash to trigger it. So that is the reason you may see double catchlights on the people. I was surprised how easy it can come once you gather the guts to flash people closer. Only I have to be more careful next time on where I place the flash to give more interesting shadows.

More fun exploring the possibilities of the flash used on street photography.
Not the perfect composition, but I was trying to get the guy who was close to me lit with my on camera flash as a fill in, the people on the back lit with the sun and the guy at the end with the external flash, although it resulted on too bright guy .

I wanted to recreate the look of the old soviet propaganda portraits. I used a main 500 watts main light with no fill.
Here are my light patterns photos. I put so much attention to the light ratios that I completely forgot about the tilt in the heads. That makes my models look "stiff". Definitely one thing I will have to be more careful about the next time I make a classic portrait.
