Jeff,

you had asked a question earlier, and i just simply missed it..

the background is real, it was on top of a parking garage with a storm brewing.. i did add some drama to the clouds as well.. i double layered in more stormy clouds to create that doom and gloom look..

the little tops of the building is part of the Purdue building too.. so i keep it in there.. probably could have cloned it out too..

You sure get a lot of great skies. Are there times you need to reschedule because you're not getting what you want?

How's your back, btw?

I had surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago. A double fusion which is pretty major. The time in the hospital was awful, which I won't go into and recovery is tough but there is definite progress. I have to be extremely careful so photography is limited but I am doing a little. Definitely no light stands and studio strobes or anything. My wife has helped me with a couple of food pictures. Thanks for asking.

Shot a band that explicity said "we do not want pictures of us standing in front of a brick wall, we've hired 2 other photographers and that's all they effin do!"

So this. One flash superclamped to cupholder, one flash in the backseat, myself hiding in the trunk with a pocketwizard setting it all off. I told them to get into the airband thing. And alas...here we are.


The only thing that really grinds my gears is her blown out hand, which strayed a little too close to the flash on this one.

tried working with white seamless today... it was not easy as the room I am using is maybe 10x10, maybe. tried using one strobe to blow the background (took alot of PS to get it pure white) but I like the result... I had to shoot this of myself so I used a stand to focus the area where I was standing, the stand is shorter than me so it is a bit soft, my bad! CC welcome
