TWiT Photo Ep. 24 with Alex Koloskov
Most people have to separate work and play – for prolific Ukraine-born Alex Koloskov, work is play. Our viewers got a kickass splash photography lesson from the product and advertising shooter. The newly minted American citizen (congrats, Alex!) did a live demo in his studio and showed us how he captures the magnetic movement imagery of splashing liquid – in this case, Alex uses tea to masquerade as whiskey and plastic ice as, well, ice. And get this, our TWiT Photo guest also dispenses tips on how you can achieve the same clarity and precision with just a point-and-shoot. Here are Alex’s top three tips:
“The lighting is not important, light modifiers are.”
“Dial exposure compensation and flash exposure compensation in opposite directions.”
“Learn how to use color gels to create remarkable photos.”
