Hi and welcome back.
Tomorrow I head to Pasadena, CA for the California PPA Conference and convention, where I’ll be working for Expoimaging speaking and shooting OCF.
I’ll be posting as long as I can access web service, so stay tuned!
I took this natural light shot on Venice Beach in 2008. This is one of those you just had to be there. I got two shots. This is the first of the two; in the second the surfer had turned his head away from the sun.
Nikon D3, 70-200 vr
Let’s do a quick post on OCF and the Rogue Flashbenders.
The new XL Pro flashbender is amazing. It’s large enough to do almost a full body shot and compact enough to fit in a large camera bag or roller bag.
In the BTS shot, I setup an over and under beauty style or clamshell lighting for Ricky.
On top is an XL Pro full size; on bottom is an XL Pro using the strip box attachment:
- Manfrotto 1052 BAC Lightstands
- SB910 and SB800 with battery packs
- Rogue XL Pro
- Pocket Wizard Plus III
- Exposure: 1/125 @ f/5.6, ISO 200, WB Daylight
Here’s a final:
That’s it for now. Till next time in CA, happy shooting.
