I have an old black fleece glove that I wrapped and taped up around a small box to form a nice flat black surface. I set up a table, flash and white diffuser in my garage. I opened up my garage about half way and stick the glove outside and wait for snowflakes to land. I shake off or blow flakes...
I actually used two for this shot. D300 with a 70-200 mounted and a 50 1.8 reversed. Here's my setup. Focusing is completely manual (moving back and forth) and why my body hurts navigating 3 lbs of gear millimeters at a time. :)
Thanks everyone! :)
I can't get any more DoF unless I shoot it straight on to get everything in focus or do some sort of focus stacking.
I have a few more, but not as detailed as this one. I'm going to try other objects. This is fun!
I recently just started doing macro shots. Since it has been snowing like crazy here in the Midwest, I thought I'd take a stab at shooting a snow flake. Hats off to you macro shooters, my back hurts! :shame:
Snowflake by Conrad Castelo, on Flickr
...well at least my fantasic four! ;)
This was fun to take. I love how it turned out.
Also created an outtake animated version. :) To get the kids to laugh in the photos, my wife tickled them from behind. You can see her arms in the outtakes. lol
It's been awhile since my last post. I though I should start participating in the community again.
Here's Jena. She been modeling for quite sometime. She had so many poses, I couldn't keep up with her. :) This is one of my favorite shots from the session.
The background support is a kit from Calumet Photo (http://www.calumetphoto.com/eng/product/calumet_heavy_duty_background_support/mf6095). It comes with everything you need to to setup a backdrop. Two 12' stands, a cross bar and a padded case.
The seamless paper is from Calumet as...
I didn't see a running thread about this new lens. Since mine just arrived today, I thought I'd start one. If anyone else has this lens, feel free to jump in and post a sample! :biggrin:
I only have one sample at the moment. This is the first shot I took. It's wide open at 1.8. I caught him...
It's been awhile since I last posted a photo. Here's a session earlier this year I did for Joy Scott Millinery. The hats are wonderful! :biggrin:
1. (my personal favorite)
I'm only going to post 3 of my favorites. If you like hats you can view the rest here. Enjoy! :biggrin:
Thanks Joe. Do you think you could post a screen capture of the area that's making you scroll? All the text should wrap around to another line. As for the text being pixelated, it might be due to the font/size combo. I might have to change fonts.
I am using Simpleviewer. It seems to work...
Rebuilt my website from the ground up. It's much better than my previous site I made a few years back. It is now Flash, HTML5, iPhone, Android and tablet friendly. I tried to code it so that it works with as many different platforms possible. This allows it to be viewed on anything and anywhere...
It's just an extension cord reel. Makes it easy to clean up. It also has 4 extra outlets for convenience. :biggrin: I only use it in the studio. When I go on location, I have a set without the reel. The reel makes it bulky to carry in a bag.
I use the D600 with the A2033L C-Stand. It can hold pretty much anything I put on it. As for someone holding it? I think it's too heavy to hand hold. Especially if you have it extended with a modifier on it. You can view my setup in this thread...
Here's my home studio. I setup and break down when needed. If you click on the photo, it will bring you to my flickr page where you can hover over each piece of equipment to tell you what it is. I shot this last year. Not much has changed.
Thanks everyone! As for the underexposed, it looks fine on my side. Although, my computer has been nagging me to calibrate again for almost 2 monts now. :tongue:
You could fit in those jeans! :smile:
I love this background. You could add or remove light for a variety of shades. I love the...
Hi everyone! I haven't posted a photo in awhile. Hopefully I can post more frequently again.
Here is Anna and Chloe. We were trying to go for a vintage look. :smile:
Both models are from UR Supermodels and the jewelry was from Mali Jewelry.
I just got updated and they want to show off some major skin. No nudity, but a lot of skin. They were thinking...topless with jacket...topless with body wrap.
Looks like it will be this Sunday. We would have to shoot indoors. Forecast says around 20 degrees outside. Brrr!
Need some ideas from my fellow Nikon shooters! :biggrin: I will be doing a 5 person (all female) group photos. I need some ideas. I usually wing it, but with 5 people in a shot, it can get fairly complex. The group are all friends and are pretty much up to do anything. I just need some ideas to...
Thanks all. I just used an SB800 with a softlighter on camera left and another SB800 bare flash on camera right. I balanced in my shutter to allow the constant lights they already had inside the awning. This allowed me to use their lights for the background and I used my lights to expose the...
I covered an bridal show called "Love at Breathtaking Heights". It was done at the Willis Tower, formally known as the Sears Tower. I had the chance to take an impromptu photo session with the models in the gowns. I setup the my lights in one of the areas and fired away. You can see the entire...
Thanks everyone!! :smile:
I love the color. It has all sorts of shades depending on how you light it. Seamless Smoke Gray paper from Calumet Photo.
If you click on a photo, it will bring young flickr where I uploaded my photos. I posted all my lighting details.
I like how it turned out as well.
She was just sitting on a posing stool.
I'm glad at least each photo was appreciated. :biggrin:
The downside of the OnOne solution is that the camera has to be connected via USB to a computer that is running the server-side of the software. The iPad/iPhone/iTouch would then communicate to the server-side through wireless to trigger the camera. It's good if you will be stationary but if you...
I checked that one out as well. You still need a computer running the server software that the camera is tethered to. Then you would use the iPad to connect (WiFi) to the server software which in turn controls the camera. The software looks great and well polished though.
