New York-based photographer Kenneth Volpe has a Bachelor of Engineering degree and a Master of Engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology. In other words, he knows what is going inside the camera. But that does not mean he cannot create art with one. On the contrary, since the formation of his own photography company Transposure in 2007, Kenneth has been known for turning his deep understanding of the physics of photography into perfectly lit images.
We recently had the privilege of seeing Volpe in action. He was doing an on-location beauty shoot in downtown New York, and we were there with our cameras to film it. “In my opinion, the mark of a good photographer is someone who can take the ambient lighting and match that with strobes so that it looks natural,” said Volpe, who used four D1 monolights, two Softbox RFi 1×3′, a Beauty Dish and several grids to achieve that effect.
