Beauty is in the Light Workshop Expo Sync Lisbon 2018


Expo Sync Lisbon 2018

The second edition of the Expo Sync Lisboa took place at FIL between 26 and 29 of May. This professional fair celebrated audiovisual technologies, music, photography and multimedia. Besides all the booths where you could see and try all the latest gear releases, there was also place for talks, workshops and demonstrations made from the best artisans in their specific field, all related to the audiovisual experience. I was invited by Fujifilm to present my “Beauty is in the Light” workshop at the Colorfoto booth. There I could share some of my lighting techniques with people of all ages and photography experience.

As a subject, I had an amazing model sitting on a beautiful Harley Davidson. Since the motorbike was quite big and there was no backdrop available I tried to use a fast shutter speed to kill as much ambient light as possible to make the background dark.
