Back in July I had the chance to meet one of the top 5 photogs which I most wanted to meet in my book. Organized by the people of creativeasia, I was able to attend and meet with the one lite master, Zack Arias in Hong Kong. I been following his blog and his technique of one lite set up has been an inspiration for most of my work. The one day session was a classroom and an on-location shoot in the heart of bustling Mongkok. The session involves techniques of one lite with a shoot thru umbrella, a softbox and a snoot but also adapting and working with available light. It would’ve have been good if it was more than 1 day session as theres so much to learn from the man himself.
And what a great session it was, apart from being prolific in his work, Zack is also a good storyteller in being able to explain his technique of understanding lite in simplistic terms that you are truly more inspired.
