Pretty sure the Star Trails outing was to Fish Creek Hill out past Tortilla Flats on the Apache Trail.

Yup.

I know im going off a limb here but by any chance does anyone own a tan or brown suede fur coat that i may be able to borrow for an hour or two on saturday? I have about $20 if you want to sell it but i just need it for a photoshoot since my agent is out of town and craigslist ones are sold already.

Also, anyone know how to make fake snow? I know how to make it on the ground but im trying to make it fall from above and i dont know what to use as snow. Thank you.

Awesome wedding shots sundevil. The food shots are amazing. I like how you captured the setup as well, i think they will appreciate that a lot since many times, i hear people talk about the set up more then the wedding.

Brian, those are cool. I still havent been able to get the technique down on stacking but still trying. Unfortunately my main laptop died and has all my programs on it so i cant edit very much. The B&W gives it a cool feel somehow. Would be awesome posters.

On page 189 @Kristy, those... are... beautiful! They are extremely clear and pop out. I would say definitely art show quality.

Yes. Which i can make (a different way but same output) just dont understand how to make it fall like it is snowing. I was thinking a cardboard with some holes in it then shake it a little but seems like it was fall too fast and much.

Some examples of what im trying to get the snow to be like is...

Just thought of maybe using a small fan above the model to shoot it into the ceiling but again, dont know how much it will bring down.

Not sure how practical it'll be for wherever you're shooting, but the standard theatre technique was a cloth slung between 2 battens, with slots (not just slits) cut (diagonally) in one side. Put the artificial snow material (white confetti? Ivory soap flakes?) By raising/lowering one of the battens the "snow" will fall through the slots and drift down.

Battens, the wood looking pieces? Kind of like a two blade fan together but one side lower with holes to let the snow out and using gravity to push it?

If thats how it works, i have some pvc piping that could work similar.

Thank you for the help

You could make it really simple and look for a texture overlay that is falling snow and add it in post...?

Sort of - they're each hung separately from the grid and by raising and lowering one of them the "snow" sifts out.

"Viewers in most of North America and Hawaii will see the moonset still in eclipse.
People on the west coast of the United States and Canada will see the beginning of totality just as the moon disappears below the western horizon.

Anyone get any cool shots of the scenery around town lately? I'm planning on a zoolights shoot at dusk when there are no peoples around. Nice to be an employee sometimes
