Scouring through a huge number of photos and editing all of the ‘winners’ can be a tiring task, especially when you consider that one day may consist of hundreds or even thousands of photos. A great workflow can help significantly expedite that process, and fortunately for us, pro photographer Nick Fancher has chosen to share his. Read more…

We’ve featured photographer Nick Fancher‘s pegboard backdrop experiments a couple of times now (see here and here), and each time the setup gets fleshed out a bit more. Yesterday, Fancher released the above time-lapse video that offers a behind-the-scenes look at how he constructed his “white room” inside his tiny basement (the ceiling is just 7-feet-hight).
During Halloween a month ago, we shared a simple portrait idea by photographer Nick Fancher that involved firing a flash through fog and a perforated hardboard for a backdrop filled with beams of light. Since that initial experiment, he has taken the concept and developed it even more.
Fancher recently built a “white room” in his basement using sheets of white pegboard and hardboard. It’s essentially a white cube without side walls.
Here’s a fun photo idea you might want to try out this Halloween: shoot epic portraits showing beams of light streaming in from the background. All you need are a perforated hardboard, a couple of flashes, and a fog/smoke machine (or some method of generating smoke).
Back in 2010, Lee Morris set out to prove that you don’t need expensive camera gear to be a photographer by doing an entire fashion shoot using an iPhone 3G; while people were impressed, many nevertheless said that the use of professional studio lighting and post-processing negated the point he was trying to make.
In the above video, photographer Nick Fancher followed in Morris’ footsteps by also doing an entire fashion shoot on an iPhone, only he used nothing more than a reflector and the in-phone editing capabilities of Snapseed and Adobe Photoshop Express for all of his lighting and post processing needs. Even the models, make-up artists, and assistants were all working for trade, meaning that Fancher didn’t spend a single cent on the shoot itself. Considering all that, the results are pretty impressive.
Columbus, Ohio-based photographer Nick Fancher works as the lifestyle photographer of Men’s online shopping club JackThreads, a job that has him shooting lifestyle photos for 8-12 brands every single day. The behind-the-scenes video above shows what a typical day for Fancher looks like as he hurries around to different locations in the city to photograph his models wearing different clothing items from different brands. It not only shows the process of shooting the images, but also lighting diagrams and final results as well.
