Visiting Mike's website it's so hard to pick favorite images. I chose these four because he talks about three of them in the video above, and one I simply loved the look and feel of the image. In just a six-minute video Mike takes you through a solid list of lighting techniques, and with each image there's a different accessory. From bare bulb, to grids, a snoop, barn doors and gels, this video is just as much a lesson in light-shaping as it is creativity. I especially love the technique he's using to capture the image on the right and all with just one light!
Get to know Mike a little better with a click on any of his images to see more of his work. And, if you see him on the platform speaking at any convention, run, don't walk to grab a seat.
