Shoot at Blink Studio

Little did we know when we had this gathering in March that it would be the last outing for many of us before we started Sheltering in Place.  The virus had just gotten started, but it was “elsewhere” and we felt relatively safe so far.  With hindsight, it seems like a lifetime ago when 15 people could gather in a small studio and just worry about make up and shutter speed!

Today, I lost a friend of almost 30 years to Covid 19 and it made me snap out of my self-pity and cabin fever and realize how lucky we are just to be alive and surrounded by friends, even when our families are far away.

I dedicate this post to life and a better and more caring future.

Cheers, Merrick – we will share bubbles again in the next life!

Light Painting

One of the most difficult aspects of photography to me is flash and other ways of creating and sculpting light.  That may be why I find it so fascinating!  It is like a whole new three dimensional world and yet, it really should be so simple, because you are in control!  Truth be told, I do not feel very much in control when I am standing in a room with flashes, ambient light peeping through the windows, reflectors, gels and flashlights!  Here are some examples of (attempted) controlled lights:

This was taken in a dark room with a black background with only a flash  used for painting light on the bottle and the ornaments.

 

gelling
My first attempt with gels and a Speedlite!  Another pitch dark room with nothing but a flashlight to illuminate the flower.

Next assignment for me:  Outdoor night shooting with flashlights and gelled flashes!  Stay tuned!

 

 

Cats are Magic!

Growing up, I was frightened of cats.  They seemed unpredictable, mysterious and generally not of much interest.  It was not until I had my first cat, Bigoudi, in my twenties that I discovered how magic these beautiful creatures are!
