Let’s start the week off right! Light a bit of πŸ”₯ with the always on πŸ”₯ @saraheisenstadt We’d planned this shoot for outside- but before we got started I noticed some great light coming thru the window, so we created this impromptu scene. Big clean light from large windows made for the atmosphere in this classic look, so I felt it had to be b&w. Sarah did the heavy lifting...cases like these, I just am the πŸ’ pushing the button. 😜#ianspanierphotography #women #b&w #story #portrait #beauty #people #canon #naturallight #πŸ’₯

More new work out this week! For #EMMY this was a fun comp challenge. Shooting 9 students and their instructor- each having completed a screenplay for an episode of @bbcamerica @killingeve and asking each to play their part in this studio shoot. In @photoshop I placed all on location in post. #bts shots included. I’d be remiss not to mention @beardedimmaculateconception on set for @televisionacad making my life easier. As an added challenge, one subject got stuck in TN...so we had to reset the lighting to match. Once again- those notebooks make all the difference. I even had to make a rare selfie to test the light- and my gun safety skillz.

New work! Actor @thetpayne from the new @foxtv show @prodigalsonfox for #Emmy Magazine! This week I’ve talked about the importance of the sun- here’s a perfect example of working around the sun! At essentially high noon...Using the small bit of shade with the sun behind the building lighting up the sky ends up with beautiful even light on my subject. The bounce from the cement (that is in the sun) gives that right amount of pop- and πŸ’₯ great light. Bonus trick- if the light is too bright for your subject- blasting off that ground lay some black velvet or a black card to cut the light-now you know why athletes put the charcoal under their eyes! I’m of course getting blasted in the sun- u gotta suffer for your art πŸ˜³πŸ˜‰#ianspanierphotography #portrait #actor #men #hollywood #people #light #howto #wall #prodigalson #brit #toohotoutforasweater #β˜€οΈ

I was telling this story at a recent lecture I gave on using light to help tell your story. My β€œtraining” in lighting came from the original light- that big ol fireball in the sky. Understanding light is critical to creating images as photography literally does not exist without light. I walked the streets of NY and paid attention to what the sun does. Different times of day, different times of the year, atmospheric conditions, bounced light, reflected light, low, high, speculative, warm...I absorbed it all. The clues are all there. Then once I got my hands on some gear- aimed to replicate in the studio. Of course, studying great photographers was equally important and still is. I love to review back to my idols for inspiration. For this portrait of Chris Gardner, who was played by @willsmith in the film The Pursuit of Happyness, I first made some portraits of him at his Chicago offices- waiting for the sun to drop- and get him comfortable with me. To date, he’s still one of the most intriguing people I’ve met. At the right moment, I asked him outside to take advantage of a beam of sunlight that would be coming thru two buildings (I had scouted the day before). Sometimes luck plays a part- and the beam hit a mirrored building behind him- casting a perfect highlight on his right side. We timed our shots between traffic lights and made this portrait which landed itself as a magazine cover. I still use this kind of diagonal highlight/keylight combo today. Inspiration to action. #ianspanierphotography #lighting #men #pursuitofhappyness #movie #inspiration #reallife #chicago #Ltrain #eltrain #chi #chitown #blackmen #magazine #story #portrait #people #πŸ’₯

Man in white. @harveyguillen shot on location @twobitcircus in conjunction with the @thehollywood_reporter special Young Executives Mentorship Program Day. Making the most of one location we shot five sets in a very busy space-but of course made it appear as if we were the only ones there! To maximize a space at times I’ll just work what lighting is there- noticing this cool light display I added a pop of light from behind to mimic the feel of the LEDs used for display. #ianspanierphotography #actor #hollywood #men #location #maximize #πŸ’₯

New work for @wsj with @genevalong owner of @bowlusroadchief shot in Malibu, Ca. To see more: https://twitter.com/LeahLatella/status/1156229974317240320?s=20 Using the best lighting ever- the sun! I like to credit my knowledge of lighting to that big ol fireball in the sky. Early in my career without the luxury of @youtube lighting was a bit of a mystery. I figured the best way to learn lighting was to study how light from the sun behaved at different times of day, conditions, bounced light, angles, reflected light, any and all of it. I absorbed it all- then tried to replicate it in the studio when I had my hands on some lighting equipment. I still practice this every day. Why? Because you are never done learning.

New work for #emmymagazine ! Portrait of composer/musician @treeadams35 who’s music has been featured in tv shows like @ncisnola @showtime #californication @thecw #the100 and more. I’m partial to environmental portraits for sure, but I love the challenge of creating a studio on location to give more to my clients during a shoot. In this case, I used 2 @westcottlighting #xdrops together along with grey fabric to cover the turf under Tree. Natural light was perfect with a little early June gloom. #ianspanierphotography #onlocation #light #natural #studioanywhere #men #music #emmy #tv #guitar #walls #band #hollywood #LA #πŸ’₯

@arturocastrop at the @theshadowsfx @harveyguillen season finale party @novacancyla With the low ceilings I opted to use my location as a modifier. Banging two strobe heads into the ceiling. With a 2 stop difference I shaped the light on my subjects from multiple angles. I added a @westcottlighting #solix to give me a solid modeling light in the dark room.

Needed a little mental break on the weekend so decided to break out the @fabercastellusa from 18 years ago! I tell my story many times in lectures that I tried like hell to NOT be a photographer. The first time at college- where I literally took art classes to keep my GPA up. Seeing as I had a camera since age 6, when Photo 101 came around I just continued the track, and found myself in the darkroom more than not. A year later I changed my major. The second failed attempt not to be a photographer came later. Point is- every so often you gotta go backwards to move forward. A little Monday motivation since I’m up so damn early today. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ’₯ #ianspanierphotography #refocus #review #energy #motivationmonday #oldskool #drawing #pencil #sketchbook #return #raven #meditation #πŸ’₯

Outtake portrait of musician/composer @treeadams for @televisionacad #Emmy Magazine at his home in Los Angeles, CA. Adams is widely regarded for his scores and unique approach to making music for hit TV shows on @showtime @tntdrama @usa_network @thecw and more. He’s also toured with the likes of Jimmy Cliff, The Allman Brothers and Tribe Called Quest! Even better- he’s a fellow former NYer. 😜 When on location I’m always looking for backgrounds. The studio door had great texture- albeit in a tight space (see swipe). Using mostly natural light I added a touch of artificial light with @westcottlighting 7’ silver umbrella with diffusion matching the overhead overcast sky. Nothing like a little June gloom to make for beautiful light. #ianspanierphotography #portrait #men #music #musican #tv #magazine #location #composer #sound #people #light #mixedlight #πŸ’₯
