For today I thought I’d record a video showing a Photoshop technique that has come in handy for me on more than one occasion; I call it ‘The Never Ending Lighting Rig’ and it’s based on a technique I learned from my good friend, Photographer & Digital Artist Calvin Hollywood …
Have you ever found yourself on a photo shoot with very little time to get the ‘must have’ shots and so have maybe opted to use less lights or maybe a different lighting set up to what you would had done? How about finding yourself on a photo shoot and you don’t have enough lights? or simply wishing you’d used an extra light here and there?
Well one such shoot found me in a situation just like that because of time and space restrictions, however going into the shoot I knew I had some lights I could add in during the editing stage…
Of course using the real thing out on a photo shoot is the best option but there will always be those times when you just can’t use them or indeed, you don’t have them or you wish you’d used them. With this simple technique though time and space are irrelevant and you can add as many lights as you like because after all this is “The Never Ending Lighting Rig”
