Pinnacles (HDR)

I haven't played around with HDR on this new camera. Decided to give it a go. From five images bracketed. Merged using PhotoMatix.

Did what I could to reduce that halo effect, but the solution eludes me.

Steve and I spent a few hours up a the college working with my daughter, Shannon and her friend. It was a fairly productive day.

This was shot with a single SB-800 through an umbrella up high and camera left.

Jennyfer (Small Strobes, Big Results)

Yesterday, Steve and I attended David Tejada's workshop, "Small Strobes, Big Results". It was a good enjoyable day. David and his assistant, Eric really know their craft.

The model is Jennyfer Mariposa. She was far better at this than I.

I should note that in this workshop, David and Eric set the lighting. I simply pulled the trigger.

BW Portrait II

I got a new lens today and some other gear and just before sunset my daughter got home from school. I rushed her out to get a few shots and then realized that I was shooting at ISO 3200. Arrgh!

I didn't know she had eyelashes

My wife's three month old cockatiel, she calls "Twitter." I couldn't talk her out of that name. Until I took this photo, I didn't realize that she has eyelashes. Look at the large view. They're there.

Left Eyed Gaze

Steve was kind enough to invite me over and we spent a few hours plaing with strobes. I really had a good time. Before I knew it, we burned through three hours.
