As it’s now Friday and the weekend is fast approaching I thought I’d finish off giving you a ‘heads up’ as to what will be on the blog next week…
The shot above is from a photo shoot this week; a whole day shoot both out on location and in the studio for a model portfolio. I’m going to put together a ‘walk through’ showing some of the ‘location’ shots which incidentally found us in Windsor & Eton, UK for a few hours plus a look at what we did in the studio. Lighting was kept really simple whilst out on location using Nikon Speedlights and a couple of modifiers but the main thing I have to mention is that this was the first ever complete client shoot I shot in Aperture Priorty and TTL using the Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 and Flex TT5’s we’ve talked about over the past couple of posts.
I’ll explain more next week but in a word they were Awesome! Shooting in Aperture Priority with flash for me was a first as I’m normally a 100% ‘Manual Mode Guy’ but hey I had not one single misfire, no weird behaviour…just 100% reliable and what’s more, shooting this way with the Nikon SU800 in the mix too meant I was able to work alot faster. Now don’t think I’m looking at changing my way of shooting but this was certainly a pleasant surprise so I’ll let you know more about what went on plus I’ll be passing on a tip that stopped my kit taking a dive into the River Thames 🙂
Also I’ll be posting another book review plus a post I’m giving the title ‘Are you Poor?‘ ; sounds a little odd maybe but in true ‘Friday’ fashion, I’ll explain all next week.
Have a great weekend and I’ll catch you Monday,
