Olly sug­gested we start by cre­at­ing a scene. We kept it sim­ple with two mar­rows next to a mas­sive win­dow, which worked as a main light source, then we used re­flec­tors to fill in the shad­ows. I nor­mally push my ISO up to ISO4000 and ‘spray and pray’ in the hope that I’ll get a shot that’s us­able, but Ol­lie made me re­alise that I was sac­ri­fic­ing qual­ity for quan­tity. By tak­ing a mo­ment to think, he as­sured me, I’d end up with much bet­ter photos. I’ve tried bounc­ing my Speed­light off walls and ceil­ings at home, but I’ve never felt I had it un­der con­trol. It’s amaz­ing how two small boards can make all the dif­fer­ence.
