Recently my good friend master magician Pop Haydn had a show at the Magicopolis, I tagged along with my Fuji X100 and heres what I got.
It was a great show, I am very glad I attended.
I will also be photographing Pop’s next show and attending the Magic Castles 50th anniversary event at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Hopefully I will have more exciting photos from these events to share with you.
After having had a bit of success using an old halogen lamp as a bare bulb light source, I decided to see what stepping up to a 12 inch aluminum reflector with a 60 watt bulb would do.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of light I received from the reflector when it was approximately eight feet from my subject.
I would recommend using one of these in a pinch. Its cheap, clips to anything and is way more controllable than just a bare lightbulb.
