Shooting Window Light Without a Window: Nathan Elson's 'How I Got the Shot'

Code Canyon

YouTube and photography blogs seem to be all stocked up with quick BTS videos these days. We see photographers swinging lights around and talking about post, but I don’t think we see enough of their thought processes. Here, with Nathan Elson, we get a little bit of everything.

In his most recent version of “How I Got the Shot,” Elson is replicating window light without a window. Using the StrobePro Optical Snoot, Elson creates the shadow lines and feel of a typical industrial window frame. I love how Elson shares a little information on stacking the filters to get a unique look with just the right amount of contrast and drama.

Throughout the short video, Elson takes his time to explain his camera settings, post-processing settings, and intentions.

In terms of Elson’s editing workflow, he provides a link to his free dodge and burn action. There are, of course, a thousand ways to skin a cat, but Elson’s process is worth looking into. It certainly helps to even out skin tones while managing to keep texture intact.

Don’t forget to hold on until the end for a surprise appearance of Elson’s YouTube doppelganger.
