Red, Gray, and Blue

A couple of shots of the critters from this past weekend while testing out my Gary Fong Lightsphere Universal flash diffuser.  I think I’ve finally found the perfect modifier for my flash.  Look how soft that light is! All were taken with the  flash on camera. (gasp!!)

I liked the Universal so much, I’ve gone ahead and purchased the Lightsphere® Collapsible™ G5 Lighting Kit: Fashion & Commercial. Can’t wait to take it through its paces and really learn the ins and outs of the system.







What do you mean you’re going back to work?

I’ve been off for the past week and the pups have gotten quite used to my presence. They are in for a bit of a rude awakening today.

Nina and the Grid

I bought a set of grids for my Einstein. Grids are used to restrict the spread of the light.  The other night I took the 10° grid for a ride.   I shot these in our family room. The light spread is so narrow you can’t see the furniture behind her.
