L'arte in Kantiere: Lei non sa chi sono io by David Fattibene

"Lei non sa chi sono io" is a small project that would like to show some of the great young people behind Kantiere's Associations. They are all deeply involved in social projects such as education, legality and promotion of the local realities.

This year, among many other events, they are participating to Sentiero D'Arte, an international art exhibition in Trarego (VB, Italy) and I had the chance to be invited so I decided to prepare a series of "simple" portrait of this great new generation.

Playing with White Balance

One day I will write my own essay on "why we should always shoot RAW", but this is an other story. The shoots below are the same as before, the only difference is where I have picked the white balance (in these pictures directly on my jumper white lace). 

Next time I will try on open air in order to give a different color on the background.

Back to Basics: Flash Photography #2 by David Fattibene

Here the second attempt, focusing on Butterfly Light, Side Light with one and two speed lights (See below the pictures the Flash Diagram. 

This time I have chosen a portrait orientation and the orange wall in my dining room, the special one with the bowl and the knife is a special thanks to Alessandro Vecchi and his "Don Chisciotte...keep fighting..." which I found really inspirational

TECHNIK POINT

Below the Lighting Diagram, I have putted together the 3 schemas

  1. Butterfly Light use only the SB660 + Umbrella in frontal position
  2. Side Light with one or 2 speedlights
