How I Shoot A Strobist Portrait

Ever wondered how I get that classic Rick Nunn strobist look? I loaded up my bag with my favourite Canon, Manfrotto & Westcott gear. Grabbed a Spadgerina & headed off in to the woods to show you how!

I also picked up some Atmosphere Aerosol which they call “Haze for Photographers & Filmmakers”. It was a bit windy to really get a good feel for it, but it looks very promising! Looking forward to trying it when it’s less windy, or on an indoor shoot.

Check out the images below and the video at the bottom, or better still head over to my YouTube channel and subscribe!

P.s. if you want to totally cringe at me, you can checkout what might have been my first ever Vlog from EIGHT years ago – How I Shoot: Lowkey Portrait
