Behind The Lens

Location
I am an artist that paints primarily in dry pastels. Most of the still life compositions I put together are done with reference photos for painting. Well, it started that way... now I compose my stills for other artist's inspiration also. I really enjoy seeing another artist "get" my vision!
Time
Studio shot so the time of day is a bit irrelevant.
Lighting
My lighting technique is evolving as I add new strobes and softboxes to my studio. I will shift my lights around until I have enough drama in the shadows.
Equipment
I shoot Canon with mostly Canon glass. Most of my stills I shoot with Canon's 17-40mm. I don't mind a bit of wide-angle distortion in my stills... it adds to the drama imo.
Inspiration
Reference for my paintings.
Editing
Since I paint from a digital display I tend to increase the clarity and knock down the strobe highlights.
In my camera bag
I shoot Canon with mostly Canon glass.
Feedback
Spend time at the thrift stores looking for interesting items to add to a still life.
