  • Brian Geller thinks this is interesting:

Q: HI ZACK. ARE YOU STILL APPLYING YOUR ONELIGHT PHILOSOPHY TO YOUR COMMERCIAL WORK? OR WAS THAT MAINLY TO SHOW BEGINNERS WHAT SOMEONE CAN DO WITH ONLY ONE LIGHT SOURCE, BUT WHEN YOU’RE ACTUALLY OUT ON A PAYING GIG YOU USE WHATEVER YOU NEED TO GET THE SHOT YOU WANT, EVEN IF THAT MEANS MULTIPLE STROBES? OR DO YOU STILL KEEP IT AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE? I’VE FOUND THAT IF I LIMIT MY CHOICES, THE MORE CREATIVE I GET. ELSE IT BECOMES, “MEH, LET’S THROW ANOTHER LIGHT IN THE MIX.”
