"No one regrets taking photos. People only regret NOT taking photos."
I love these short videos Profoto has on their YouTube channel because they share so much about the featured artists and in turn their technique. They're always educational, demonstrating Profoto's never-ending quest to help photographers raise the bar on the quality of their images.
Ana Brandt is in the spotlight with this video. Based out of California, her passion centers around maternity and newborns. Her website and galleries are just a click away.
It's remarkable how much you learn about Ana in just four and a half minutes. Think about how you'd tell your story of working with a client.
For example, I love the preparation part of the video as Ana works with "Mom" to decide on the outfit along with the look and feel of the portrait. Later, you'll see Ana working with the client on a maternity shoot. Then there's the setup for the portraits themselves - how she's lighting each subject, the accessories she's using and the way she wants the finished image to look.
If you haven't made it to a Profoto retailer or rental house for your own test drive, just click on the B1X below to find the one nearest you. Off-Camera Flash has changed so much of the way photographers create and capture stunning images today. Isn't it time you found out what all the buzz is about?
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
