Hi and welcome back.

If you missed last Saturday’s workshop at Studio 28 on 27 in NYC, you missed out on a great event!

We shot all speed lights and just had a blast with simple gear.  Before I post images, I’m going to post an updated 2014 small flash gear kit.

I took the train to NYC with only two bags: one for my camera and flashes and one for lighting modifiers.  I pretty much traveled with a full studio in just these two bags.

So here’s the gear I brought for OCF:

Speedlights:

1 Nikon SB910 with SD9 Battery Pack

2 Nikon SB800’s with SD8A Battery Packs

Phottix Ares Triggers

1” Black Gaffer Tape

Roller Bag:

Tenba 36” Roller Bag

6 Manfrotto 1052 BAC Quickstacker lightstands

1 Manfrotto 122B Background/kicker lightstand

2 Matthews 40” Hollywood Grip Arms

6 Lumopro LP633 or Photek Umbrella Brackets

2 Photoflex 45” Convertible Umbrellas

1 Westcott Apollo 43” Orb

1 Westcott Apollo Strip Softbox

2 Rogue Flashbender XL Pros

1 Rogue Flashbender XL Pro with Grid attachment, due out in January 2015

2 Large Rogue Flashbenders

2 Rogue Gel kits

1 Rogue Grid

1 California Sunbounce Micro Mini Silver/White Reflector

1 California Sunbounce Enterprise Grip head

1 California Sunbounce Sunmover Silver/White Reflector

Extra gear in bag:

1 Leatherman Utility tool from Lowe’s

6 Spring hand clamps

Bag of Zip Ties, misc binder clips, Velcro

 

Now to some images:

_RVH4983Well that’s it for now.

I’ll be running another one of these OCF workshops in January back in NYC.  If you are interested, stay tuned and tell your friends.  We did a lot in only a few hours.

Till next time, happy shooting!

Hi and welcome back.

Last weekend was the PDN Photoplus Expo at the Javits Center, NYC.

If you’ve never been to the Expo, it is the largest Photography trade show in the Northeast.

I work the show for multiple companies teaching lighting, including:

Expoimaging
Phottix
Westcott
Kelby Media

I run around like a nut going from one presentation to another, and it is awesome!!

Here are proof images from the weekend:

Photoplus Expo and the Two Speedlight Beauty Headshot

Hi and welcome back.

If you are attending the PDN Photoplus Expo this weekend, stop and say hello.  I’ll be with these companies at these times:

Photoplus Expo

Thursday
Company Time Look
Expoimaging 11:15-12:00 What you can do with 1 light
Kelby Media 1:00-1:30 XL Pro and Grid

Phottix 4:00-4:45
Friday
Expoimaging 10:00-10:45 One light into two
Phottix 11:00-11:45
Expoimaging 1:45-2:30 2 Light, key and fill XL Pro

Saturday
Expoimaging 10:00-10:45 Over and Under Beauty
Phottix 11:00-11:45
Unique 12:30-1:15

Now on to the post.

I love the beauty headshot.  The ultra clean look on the lighting and the model are just wonderful.

While in Ohio, I worked with Grace Langshaw to do this look with two speed lights.

Langshaw Twins

Gear:

Key: SB800, Westcott Rapid Box

Fill: Westcott Eye Lighter

Back: SB800, Westcott 43″ Orb

Settings: Put both lights in Manual mode set to 1/4 power.

The key to this look is setting your lights at about 45 degrees to the subject and parallel with one another.

Here’s a BTS:

_RVH3468

Here is a final:

_RVH3461_rt_webYour initial capture will have a bit of milky softness to it as the light from the back is so strong that is enters the lens and has a milky feel to it.  The fix here is in RAW conversion.  Simply drag the black slider on the adjustment panel to the right to add contrast and remove the softness on the image.

That’s it for now.  I hope to meet new faces at the PDN this year!

Hi and welcome back.

I’m home from a successful trip to Dodd Camera, Columbus, Ohio.

In this post I ran a workshop with Westcott gear with a new model: Katy Ngo.

Here are some samples from the day. We even went outside for a few frames despite the cold and windy conditions.  Katy was a real trooper!

All shots Westcott gear and Phottix Ares radio triggers.
