Photos: R&N Pre Wedding

Notes: Weather has been unusually pleasant this week, and that made me forget how much colder the mountain top can be.  Rushed the entire day, and barely made it to my spots.  Lucky for us, there was a nice couple with a truck full of friendly doggies and puppies, one of which made for a […]

Photos: Random 85mm 1.4 Tests

Technical Notes: Random tests of the Nikon 85mm f/1.4, first impressions are:  it’s not as versatile as the 105mm 2.8 VR Micro for portraits, definitely not as sharp wide open, and the minimum focus distance is limiting, but the bokeh is quite “painterly.”  DOF is so shallow at 1.4 that you can definitely “buzz” a person […]

Notes: Speedlight in a softbox, CLS triggered, SB800 zoomed out to 105mm hitting the mirrorball made for some cool pix

Photos: Wild Bill’s

Notes: SB-800 Speedlight in a softbox, CLS triggered. Last minute notice on this shoot, so thanks to S.B. for backdrop.  Dark as a cave in the lounge area, but the purple wall made for some interesting shots, also thanks to all the mua’s and stylists.

Photos: Casting Call

Took a friend to a casting call for a rap video (…crank dat…ohhh!).  It was over pretty quick so took the opportunity to try some strobist shots around the ATL. Technical Notes: As you can see, SB800 with the diffusion dome, hand held.

Photos: Photo Barn Shoot

Dunwoody Model Meetup | Photo Barn | Lilburn, GA Notes: Nikkor 17-55mm 2.8, and 105mm 2.8 VR Micro for these shots.  Shot some with the Photogenic studio strobes, but couldn’t get my usual results so went back to the good ol’ SB800 in a softbox for some images.  Nextdoor was an old Chevy remodeling place.  Mosquito repellant, […]

Photos: Speedlight in a Softbox

Learned a thing or two in Miami and got a chance to try it out with my own setup.  Thanks to others on the web, it’s quite easy to shoot using a remote speedlight (a flash) in a softbox. Now granted, these shots will never compete for any covers anytime soon, but I think it’s so cool that the technology […]
