BTS: The Slanted Lens Shows How To Creatively Light At Night

The Slanted Lens is back with another amazing lighting tutorial. This time they venture onto a 1700's Naval ship, the U.S.S. Constitution in Boston, MA. The portraits include an early Naval captain and his shipmates loading cannons. This tutorial specifically goes through how to light creatively during the nighttime hours where lighting might be more difficult for some.

The photoshoot was shot with a Canon 5D MkIII  for its amazing low-light capabilities and a Tamron 24-70mm  with some Dynalights and an octobox. They used an old smoke machine to give the photos some theatrical flair and better ambiance.

The part at the end is rather random, why does Santa tie the guy up and not even read the dudes note! He just leaves random presents in his house o0 Also isn't Santa the scientist from Jurassic Park?
