Creative Photography Behind The Scene: Lightbulb

Background story and tutorial for the Lightbulb shot:

I wanted to do something with a light bulb. I saw a photo online of a light bulb lying on a sheet of perforated aluminium. That inspired me to do something like that, but different.

About the author:

Mark-LukensI started photography as a hobby in 2006. When my son was born, I bought my first DSLR. I knew nothing about photography at that time and this was where my learning curve started. I am completely self-taught and in my first couple of years my shooting interests were very diverse. I shot landscapes, macro (mainly insects), sports (mainly auto- and motorsports), experimental stuff (strobist style), concerts, portraits and the life of my kids.

In 2010 I started my part-time photography business. Since then I’ve been mainly shooting weddings and portraits. In 2013/ 2014 I also began teaching a basic beginners photography course (offline). In the meantime I kept my full-time day job and invested most of my photography income in quality gear, sustaining my hobby.

The last couple of years I have been unhappy with my day job and decided that I want to take my photography business to the next level. I love doing weddings but don’t want to do weddings only. First of all because I want more variety in my life. Secondly because I want to be able to have work when the ‘wedding season’ is over.

I’ve always loved doing experimental stuff. Therefore I started learning (really learning ;-) ) high end product photography a couple of months ago. And building a portfolio along the way. All with the help of the Photigy Pro Club courses and tutorials. Which is the first time for me to invest in photography education.
