Heya,

So it's Easter for, we did it early, and naturally everyone wanted pictures. So I had to quickly scramble and run outside and setup a "studio" in my yard along my drive way near where everyone parked. Challenge accepted, spontaneous shoot with kids. Oh boy!

Equipment:

Canon 5D classics x 2
Tamron 90mm F2.8 VC
Canon 35mm F2 IS
Yongnuo RF603c's
Yongnuo 560 III (rim/hair/backlight)
Flashpoint Rovelight 600B (main)
Impact 60" Umbrella (black back)
Cheetahboom stand and impact stand
Sekonic L478D

I wanted enough distance to the foliage in my yard to get a soft background, but not completely nuked, as I like the falling oak limbs, so I marked a spot for us all to pile onto. I metered the overall environment with the camera to be approximately -1 stop or so, and was happy at 1/200s, F3.5, ISO 50 for the ambient light. I setup my light as camera-right, because the morning sun was still East (which was camera-left still) to counter any shadows. I metered my main light to F2.8, a little under my set focal-ratio (F3.5) as I like to not shoot at full key exposure with lights for better blends. I decided to use a back light, which is not normal for me, because I wanted the girls' hair to really pop because it was windy. I metered it also at F2.8, but I should have metered it lower unfortunately, maybe F2 light or even lower. Live and learn there, it was too bright at the end of the day, but survivable on that mistake. I placed the hair/backlight to camera left to replace the traveling sun that would come and go through clouds & tree canopy.

There were 4 kids total, did quite a bit more, but they're other peoples' kids so didn't really upload much there. Just figured I'd share what I managed in the yard last minute with humble equipment.

Very best,

Awesome!! Love LOVE it.

He looks a bit stiff in this one. Try getting him to relax a bit more, maybe a squeaky toy or a joke would go a long way. The lighting is top notch though.

Never get tired of these! Cool to see the various enclosures you're using.

Thanks for sharing!

Do you have any shots of the set up after the launch? i.e. how much damage do the protective cases suffer?


Cheers, Damien

We don't really risk any damage from the launch at that pad. The FAA keeps us at a minimum of 1200ft from the vehicle.

The Atlas and Delta pads, on the other hand... After the most recent Delta, one of my setups was described as a 'debris field.'

Am recording some pendants made by a local artist. Stones are probably a flavor of feldspar and, due to the limited light angles that generate the iridescence, are a devilish challenge to photograph. Result first:

IMAGE: http://makino.fi/rico/sony/misc/pendant3c.jpg

Despite the white b/g, I was going for a low-key treatment of the jewelry in order to bring attention to the scintillations. Since they change color and position as the viewing and keylight angles are altered, I had to pick something representative. The setup:

IMAGE: http://makino.fi/rico/fm/pendant3b.jpg

I used a single bare bulb behind Rosco Rolux panel for medium diffusion as the key coming from upper left. Using a panel allows tuning the key size which was important to generate the maximum iridescence without swamping the scene. Bare bulb also generated the ambient fill which was then shaped by the flag.

I can appreciate the low-key approach, and you certainly met your objective, Rico. Nice photography !
However, being a bit of a rockhound, the stone appears to be a labradorite in my opinion.

Thank you! I defer to your expertise, but note that labradorite is a form of feldspar. The iridescence is full spectrum and really intense, especially on the reverse side of these stones, leading me to wonder if the mineral is spectrolite (a form of labradorite). What do you think?

Try scratching it with your fingernail.  :p
