Complex Scene Zone-Lighting – Conceptual Photography by John Flury

John Flury is a fine art/commercial photo designer from Zurich, Switzerland. Starting as a little boy, he always had a knack for telling stories – in writing, as drawings and comics, and later, as play scripts and short films. In his conceptual works, he brings subtle realities to life that often have a strong connection to the people he portrays. Consequently, the chosen themes and concepts are the result of a collaboration with the models themselves. John has perfected a versatile lighting technique that allows for lighting a complex scene with only a few flashes, called zone-lighting (read his tutorial).

Wow! Just wow! I don’t understand about the zonelighting. Is all the photos made with this technic? What kind of flash is used?

Hi Paolo, thank you for your question. Only the first three photos and the the one called “Aurora” are lit using zone-lighting. All the other ones are done in a single exposure. For the more elaborate photos there are tutorials up on my blog, if you are interested.
