In a couple recent photo shoots I’ve found myself using a reading lamp as my key light source. It’s funny how, after spending thousands of dollars on “professional” lighting, I find myself preferring to use just common household lamps, reading lamps, that kind of thing. Also, I want to revisit the importance of studying the work of others; particularly the people who really inspire and motivate you. It’s powerful education and food for your photography and creativity.
