.........But if it's raining, which it did for the most part here, then we just go shoot in other areas where I can control the light more...
Don't you know that "real" professionals don't carry lights, or use lighting?
At least that's what some of the big time A list pros say on this forum.
Also they use real small cameras so they can sneak around a location and nobody knows they are there.
I would think that sneaking around would get you in trouble, especially shooting real people for commerce, but that's what they're saying here.
I mean your photos are beautiful but isn't that cheating if you actually light a scene and make daylight on a cloudy day?
Don't you have to carry heavy equipment? I bet carrying heavy stuff is hard and you have to go to school or read something to use lights . . . right?
Wouldn't it be better to just sit in the bar for a few weeks waiting for sun?
