Lighting for Night Photography: How to Light a Large Space: A Lighting Tutorial
From Jay P. Morgan

In today’s Slanted Lens lesson we shot in Boston on the USS Constitution. It is the oldest commissioned ship in the U.S. Navy as it was built in the late 1700’s. We had a great talent who we hired in the area. The wardrobe looked amazing as Julene was able to find clothing from the film Master and Commander for our shoot. We flew it in from Los Angeles.
In this lesson we look at how to light a large space at night. Some may think it takes a tremendous amount of equipment but I found that two or three well placed strobe heads can create a very effective look. We also used smoke as the atmosphere for the shot which enhanced the look of our images. More on that thought to come in the lesson. It was a great shoot and a great privilege to shoot on the USS Constitution in the historic Boston area. I am very pleased with the results. Keep those cameras rolling and keep on click’n.
