Hi to whomever may be reading this
My name is Ty and im an aspiring what I like to think serious photographer, I’ve shot natural light and on camera flash pretty well, I had experimented in OCF quite successfully. However I really wanted to use lighting and become part of the strobism spectrum…you know like the serious guys and girls. I had some small experience with lighting but never really got it right? Always had a light spill to the floor where my subject was or something of that nature, burn out or unnatural looking images.
I came across Steve Castings a couple years back and have been following him obviously as he is definitely one of the pinnacle points in the beauty and seduction photo industry.
So for the year of 2017 I decided that I have to develop and move into the world of Hi speed sync photography, this is it! As if by a miracle I came across Steve’s Mentorship Programme.
So, very nervous I went off to my one day Compressed programme for somewhat slightly experienced photographers, Steve welcomed me with such an open attitude immediately made me feel comfortable by the cool nature he carries.
So we started working,
Steve Teaches a wonderfully simple technique to achieve amazing portraits, it’s not magic. On the day we covered shooting in series 1st, 3 different poses in the same frame. How to feather subjects into the background creating the look of beauty and where to keep my focus. Creating tones was the next step, this is huge as I always tried to light my subjects clean ignoring shadows as I was scared of them. Steve showed me how to create light spill to generate tones to give depth and mood to an image, magical stuff. We covered many more areas along the day such as Beauty/Fashion poses to mention one. Steve Castings Academy has elevated my photography to a far higher level that I felt I could only achieve with fumbling around by myself for a couple years, it took one day with Steve. I now light with confidence, I highly recommend the Steve Castings academy to any photographer professional or not moving into or struggling with Strobism.
Plus Steve is a Cracker of a Guy who makes the course highly enjoyable and fun!!!!!
