Today id like to share the lighting set used for this set of images.

Lee Ramsden lighting set up, behind the scenes BTS elinchrom ranger quadra nikon D800 small home studio

Above is the behind the scenes image taken in my make shift dining room studio. 

A - Elinchrom quadra shot through an Octa box. 

B - Elinchrom ranger shot through the small honey comb grid that is supplied with it, used as a hair light.

C - Elinchrom quadra shot through a snoot, to try and just give a kiss of light to the face.

D - Nikon SB700 used to give a graduation over the background. 

As you can see from the set these lights in action. Now these kids are getting bigger its easier to light like this, as they take instruction well and don't move about too much. 

Where as my 2 year old toddler is a different story ha!

Little people...

I headed up north for a work related course, 

(the offshore survival, where you get dunked upside down, in a helicopter, in a swimming pool, but thats another story!)

So while in the area i hooked up with my cousin who wanted some images of her kids, and it was a pleasure.

Im used to objects or people who do as i say and stand still. The little ones are full of beans and run around, which certainly keeps you on toes.

I look forward to do some more soon as they are little angels.

Teelan Stack.

Hi all, 

Well, what a busy couple of weeks with re: to the photography.  

Last week i had a fantastic child shoot with the little Teelan seen below, 

It was the first toddler shoot that I have done. I have worked with babies before and they are great as they tend not to move.... 

As you can see Teelan is full of character and is a fast little runner keeping me on my feet and having to think fast. 

Big thanks to the Stack family and hope to work with you again.
