Nikki Senior Photos

The weather for this photo shoot kept deciding to be schizophrenic and we canceled the first shoot. Well, a week later, right before I was about to leave for Maryland, we decided no matter the weather we would still shoot, because Nikki, model, really wanted me to shoot her senior pictures. So this Saturday it happened to be rainy, but we made it work and under the circumstances I think they turned out pretty well.

I used a fill flash with a 580 EX II Speedlight and an umbrella.

Absence of Time

Being busy with Army duties takes away time for large and creative photo shoots. So lately I have been keeping my mind creatively thinking by haveing small shoots of random things I find in my barracks room or on post here in MD.

For starters, I have created my own miniature studio. I purchased a bunch of tag/foam boards, some of which are colored on one side and white on the other. All of the images in this blog, except the chain, used one flash and bounce. The chain was lit with all natural light and is part of a yellow fire hydrant I had found here on the Army post. These images were inspired by color. As many know I really like color and contrast.

Hope ou enjoy...I will post more small photo projects as i do them.

I do have a promotional photo shoot coming up of Lights Out Dancing, I have named it the Great Outdoors....Look For It!!!!
