Really like this, except for the bag on the floor, would have been better without that as it adds nothing to the image.

Mark, I think you need to be a hockey player to appreciate the significance of the bag, it's definitely part of who they are as a player. Plus it's a locker room type of shot, so to me the bag is very appropriate.

There is no way my hockey bag would be in a shot like that.

(Because Mike would have passed out from the smell before taking the shot)

Being a hockey player, to me the odd part is him being in jeans with his skates on. I may have just had him barefoot with his skates leaning on the bag. More of a transistion to getting ready. Still a nice shot.

Thats his gear bag. We wanted to show him sitting in the locker room thinking about getting ready for a big game.

Okay, makes sense now, I have no knowledge of hockey at all. :-)

Upon a 2nd look, I think the bag actually fills the space and composition as well or better than a vacant floor space.

Particularly with the photo being oriented horizontal.

I guess the rest of his uniform is in the gear bag! Now where did he leave that? ;)

Hey guys, got a question: How important is it to have an ND filter for your outdoor shots?

I understand its best to shoot in shade and overcast days and ND filters can be avoided at those times. I am just about ready to start shooting senior/family shots, got my 70-200 f2.8 lens, AB1600 + Large octabox + Vagabond Mini. All items are arriving in the mail soon. Just wondering if I should order ND filters now?

And also, is a $200 variable ND filter (looking at Hoya) better than buying multiple ND filters and stacking if needed?

I had a model shoot yesterday. It was evening time but sun was still there. I was going to use my 3 stop filter but for what ever reason I didn't. I tried to go ISO50 but couldn't figure it out on my new 5dmk3 so ended up with auto ISO. I will post some shots of my results.

Here I used the column on left to get some shade. highlights reduced by -20 in LR. Exposure also reduced a bit.

Here I placed her so back to the direct sun. Highlights reduced in PP. Used f4 here.

But in direct sun, ND filter is nice to have. I prefer fixed as most times 3 or 4 stops is plenty.

Before I had my einsteins I had the 1600s - even on their lowest power setting, shooting wide open at 1.2, 1.4, etc was a problem because they were just too strong. Granted, I always get my modifiers as close as possible to my subjects, so that made it more difficult. So yes, even in the shade ND helped. I have the Tiffen three-packs of 2, 3, and 4 stop screw-on filters for 72 and 77mm respectively.

Not the cheapest things in the world but compared to the price of variable filters, not bad. I've ABUSED mine shooting video and they have performed perfectly. Stacking is not advised due to color issues.

Some people swear by the variable filters but I never found them to be acceptable. I've tried all the big names except light craft and have found vignetting and color casts at some point (sometimes several) in the density range.

Those are gorgeous Bobby...stunning girl!

This is Kaylee, one of my senior reps this year. I had a blast working with her yesterday! I have a lot of favorites so it's hard to narrow it down to 8, but here goes...
