One of the most frequent questions asked to me during my online photo courses is whether it is better to use a flash or a continuous light.
Usually I shoot my still life photos in continuous light, to have an immediate visual control on shades, reflections, etc., so this time I decided to make a shot "a la strobiste".
To have this ugly, uneven light with a lot of sharp shadows I used:
- on the left, a Pentax AF 400 T at 1/25 power (guide number must be 8, according to the manual) at 70 cm;
- on the right, a Philips P32 GTC at 1/4 power (it must have guide number 8, too) at 60 cm, with a kitchen paper diffuser in front of it.
Both the flashes (hammer head type) are mounted on cheap tripods, half a meter higher than the lemons.
To trigger them I used:
- a Chinese radio remote bought on eBay;
- a "1 PC sync male - 2 PC sync females + hot shoe" adapter, bought on eBay, plugged into the remote outlet.
The flash cables, totally stretched, allow me to have 120 cm between the flashes.
The photo is made with a SMC Pentax M 50/1.7 @ f:22... just because the aperture stops there, and I ran out of cable to place farther the flashes.

Some considerations

* Direct naked flash light is ugly, too sharp. Better to use a diffuser or even a sort of "bank" or "lightbox" or whatever it is called by marketroids.

* Flashes are too powerful, and will require more distance from the subject. This means to have a lot of available space to place them in the correct place, at least a couple of meters on each side of the subject, and higher supports (over 2 meters, if you don't want to take your photo on the floor, that is uncomfortable for focusing).

* The lack of a modeling light makes very hard to understand if everything has the right lights, shadows and reflections (and even focus).

* Two flashes often are not enough to have the light everywhere is needed.

* Since high density digital sensors hate the old good narrow apertures (f:45 or f:90 are instead common, on large format) it is better to place a ND filter on the lens to keep the aperture at a level good for the sensor.

* A monobloc strobe with a sturdy support, a good modeling lamp and a lot of tailored accessories can't be replaced with a portable flash, even if this has a lot of sophisticated functions or power.


For beginners who want to shoot small objects continuous lights are better, and don't require expensive accessories (remote triggers, umbrellas, lightbox, supports, etc.).
Anyway, using appropriate (long) exposure times, it is possible to mix strobe light and continuous light, but this is pretty tricky.

Who need fresh lemons can climb my tree: this year I have an overproduction of them.


Una delle domande che mi vengono poste piu frequentemente durante i miei corsi online di fotografia e se e meglio usare un flash o una luce continua.
Di solito scatto le mie nature morte in luce continua, per avere un controllo visivo immediato su ombre, riflessi, ecc., quindi questa volta ho deciso di fare uno scatto "a la strobiste".
Per ottenere questa brutta luce sbilanciata con un mucchio di ombre affilate ho usato:
- sulla sinistra un Pentax AF 400 T a potenza 1/25 (il numero guida e 8, stando al manuale) a 70 cm;
- sulla destra un Philips P32 GTC a potenza 1/4 (dovrebbe essere anche questo a numero guida 8) a 60 cm, con un diffusore in carta da cucina davanti.
Entrambi i flash, a torcia, erano montati su vecchi cavalletti economici, mezzo metro piu in alto dei limoni.
Per farli scattare ho usato:
- un radiocomando cinese comprato su eBay;
- un coso "1 PC sync maschio - 2 PC sync femmina + hot shoe", comprato anche quello su eBay, attaccato all'uscita del ricevitore.
I cavi dei flash, totalmente stirati, mi hanno permesso di avere 120 cm tra i flash.
La foto e fatta con un SMC Pentax M 50/1.7 a f:22... solo perche la ghiera dei diaframmi si ferma li, e non avevo abbastanza cavo per mettere i flash piu lontani.

Alcune considerazioni

* La luce diretta e nuda del flash e brutta, troppo cruda. Meglio usare un diffusore o una specie di "bank" o "lightbox" o come accidenti li chiamano i marketroidi.

* I flash sono troppo potenti, e richiederebbero piu distanza dal soggetto. Questo vuol dire avere un sacco di spazio disponibile per posizionarli nel posto giusto, almeno un paio di metri su ogni lato del soggetto, e supporti piu alti (oltre due metri, se non volete fare le foto sul pavimento, che e scomodo per mettere a fuoco).

* La mancanza di una luce pilota rende estremamente duro capire se tutto ha le giuste luci, ombre e riflessi (ed anche fuoco).

* Due flash spesso non sono abbastanza per avere luce ovunque serva.

* Visto che i sensori digitali ad alta densita odiano i cari vecchi diaframmi molto chiusi (f:45 o f:90 sono invece comuni, nel grande formato) e meglio montare un filtro ND per tenere il diaframma ad un'apertu

Italian umbrellas

An umbrella or parasol (sometimes colloquially; gamp, brolly, umbrellery, or bumbershoot) is a canopy designed to protect against precipitation or sunlight. The term parasol usually refers to an item designed to protect from the sun, and umbrella refers to a device more suited to protect from rain. Often the difference is the material; some parasols are not waterproof. Parasols are often meant to be fixed to one point and often used with patio tables or other outdoor furniture. Umbrellas are almost exclusively hand-held portable devices; however, parasols can also be hand-held. Umbrellas can be held as fashion accessories.
The word umbrella is from the Latin word umbra, which in turn derives from the Ancient Greek ombros (??????). Its meaning is shade or shadow. Brolly is a slang word for umbrella, used often in Britain, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa, Bumbershoot is a fanciful Americanism from the late 19th century.
Umbrella is another synonym for the term parasol, which was first used as a protection against the scorching heat of the sun, "para" meaning stop or shield and "sol" meaning sun. The word "umbrella" has evolved from the Latin "umbella" (and "umbel" is a flat-topped rounded flower) or "umbra," meaning "shaded."

L'ombrello e un oggetto che serve a riparare l'uomo da eventi naturali indesiderati quali la pioggia, la neve o il sole troppo caldo.
Non si conosce con precisione ne il periodo, ne il luogo in cui l'ombrello fu inventato. Si pensa derivi dall'oriente (Cina, India o Giappone); alcuni ritengono fosse presente anche nell'antico Egitto. In Cina era associato (fin dall'epoca preistorica) al culto dell'Imperatore, come oggetto sacro; nell'Egitto dei faraoni era consentito usarlo solo ai nobili; in Giappone proteggeva i samurai ed ora e un vero e proprio simbolo nazionale. Nella Grecia classica era utilizzato prevalentemente dalle donne nell'ambito del culto di Dionisio, mentre durante l'Impero Romano era usato come accessorio di abbigliamento vezzoso e seducente dalle donne piu ricche. Infine entro anche nell'iconografia pontificia come oggetto di pertinenza del papa. L'ombrello e un oggetto antichissimo, che ha avuto durante i secoli varie funzioni, ma non quella per cui e utilizzato oggi, che e di riparare dalla pioggia.
Fino al Settecento l'ombrello (che era costruito con la pelle o, successivamente, con tela cerata) e rimasto un oggetto in uso solo fra i nobili e le classi abbienti ed era portato da un servo come distintivo onorifico. Per la pioggia si usavano mantelli e cappucci. Solo nell'Ottocento si e iniziato a diffondere l'uso dell'ombrello come parapioggia; occorre dire che anche oggi in molti paesi del Nord Europa l'ombrello viene considerato come un accessorio un po' stravagante e preferiscono bagnarsi, piuttosto che portarne uno.
