Something New

So we have a totally free Saturday and what are we doing? Shooting.

We couldn't help ourselves! After watching Zack Arias' One Light DVD this afternoon, we couldn't WAIT to get out and test our new found knowledge on off-camera lighting. We have used some off-camera lighting before, but to be honest, really didn't know what we were doing until watching this dvd - it really is a great educational tool.

Our light source was our little bitty PhotoFlex 12x16" LiteDome kit and all images were shot at ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/200 sec with my flash set at 1/4 power in manual mode with the 17-40mm 4.0 lens. It was a little after 4pm (sun sets around 5:30pm) when we started shooting.

And can we give it up for my hot model?!

Your pictures are awesome!! I love what you did with the lighting and how beautiful the sky looks.

PS - Is that handsome model your husband? :)

Thanks so much sharing!!

These are soooo neat! Learning more about off camera lighting is definitely one of my biggest 2009 goals! Do you recommend that DVD?

Matthew Hammett said...

That's next on my list. We ended up getting Robert Evans' Mentor Wanted for Christmas.

I enjoyed the shots. I definitely want to learn more about off-camera flash this year.

Great work Cheyenne!!!
