    @alexiscuarezma here. Portrait of professional boxer @ms.raquelmiller outside the boxing ring. A bit different than the work I usually post. Don't people look so much more relaxed when you use natural light??? If you said yes, I couldn't disagree more. Let's talk about light control and lighting with intent and motivation. This image was 100% lit by @profotousa D2 strobes. 4 to exact plus 1 B2. If they didn't go off the image would be black. We were shooting in the shade at @eq.studios but I knocked out all the ambient light. This was one of the final looks I showed in my Lighting workshop down there. You can make an image like this at night. "Natural" light is great, but it's extremely inconsistent. And that's why I never rely on it. If it's there during a shoot and I can use, great but rarely (if ever) has that happened to me. If you're a photographer, light is your best friend. Doesn't matter if comes 93 million miles away from a giant gas ball that emits radiation and gives you skin cancer if you're exposed for it too long, or a bunch of candles 3ft away. It's your best friend, learn how you can use it to execute your vision. #profotousa #profoto #profotod2 #profotob2 #canonusa #teamcanon #lastolitebymanfrotto #lastolite

    @alexiscuarezma here... After the sun sets I love that moon light. @marinajacoby after dark, on the beach. Or something like that, because this was taken in broad daylight a few hours before sunset. I love blue, blue tones and wanted to give this image a night feel and different mood then all the other images. There's different way you can portray night. My favorite is usually "moon light". I like to say I'm an honest lier because I rarely like to show things for how they actually are like in this photo taken during the day. Certainly everything is to taste/style and dependant on what you want to communicate with your visuals. What I did here was underexpose the ambient by about 1.5-2 stops. If you're in direct sunlight, it certainly helps if you can use a 2 stop diffusion silk to help motivate the "moon light", as it'll have to come from a strobe. Once you have your ambient/base exposure set to your liking, you need to set your Kelvin temp. Since I wanted a night feel & I like blue I dropped it. I live in the 2500-4500 range and this image fell on the bluer end. To separate her, highlight her curves and help motivate "moon light" I fired off a @profotoglobal B1 with an OCF Magnum reflector. Normally I like my highlights over exposed by 1-2 stops, and I add @tiffencompany filters for diffusion on my lens or netting. And that's how I turned day into night (if you believed this was done at night when you saw it). What's crazy is since exposure & temp can be controlled in post with the raw file, this all can be undone and you can turn it back into daytime. That can be good for teaching or illustrating the effects of exposure & color temp can have on an image. But I don't really value options. Instead I cherish clarity and having my point of view. #teamcanon #missnicaragua #marinajacoby #profotob1
