Additionally, his work is exhibited in permanent collections at Newseum in Washington, D.C., and numerous other shows around the country.
Friedman is a photography staple and legend, having covered every presidential candidate from Jimmy Carter to Barack Obama. And besides taking excellent and prominent photos, he’s also know for his lighting techniques, which he is sharing with others today on his creativeLIVE Lighting Toolkit Workshop called Quick Location Lighting. Resource Magazine snagged a sneak peak for our readers with this exclusive footage of three lighting tips from the master himself.
In the video, Friedman shows how to create the best and quick “one-man location lighting” while not weighing down the camera bag. A speedlight, a portable softbox and reflectors is all a photographer needs to create the perfect lighting.
