Was that snoot on my shopping list? That pull back shot looks great.

It is on your list. The pullback shows this snoot attached to the flash bracket also on your list. The only thing that isn't on your list is the wall bracket everything is mounted on. Because of the off centered weight, I used the cinder block to keep the whole thing from tipping over.

Here's the wall plate I used as the base. I also attach it to the top of a light stand to place a floor tile on as a small stage.

Gene, I’m trying to get my head around this part. What goes into it? If it had a stud like the top of a light stand I can see how the c clamp would attach but this has a hole instead

In Colorado just north of RMNP we were privy to watch two bull moose clashing.
I was shooting video with the a9 and this is an extraction of when the battle was over and they both
turned (to run at us).
I didn't think too bad for a video harvested image.

Oh, sorry, I forgot to mention I used what's known as a "Male Converter Threaded Screw Adapter Spigot Stud" like the ones linked below. I have a couple from other lighting kits such as umbrella brackets.

Here's the plate, the snoot, an adjustable bracket and one of the studs I used. The adjustable bracket was to give me some clearance between the plate and snoot. The bracket is from an LED light panel I have for video. I've also used it to add light on my hummingbird feeder when shooting stills.

It isn't far at all from Viera. Take I-95 north to the 528 exit, go east towards the cruise ships but take the exit right before that exit (just short of the Intercoastal Water Way). North about 3/4 of a mile and turn right onto Gator Dr.

went out to the lake tonight...took a few pictures...the real color faded out as the sun set...was a bummer. But these folks had anchored up here...great spot for it. Makes me think of my Uncle, he loved living on his sailboat...

I think I've figured out how to recreate Nik's ProContrast filter but it involves working with luminosity masks to target the midtones to add some dynamic contrast. An action can probably be created but I would recommend using one of the luminosity panels such as Lumenzia, TKActions, or Raya Pro to recreate the look.

I am sure that most of what NIK can do, can be recreated...but not quickly...right now I have my full NIK panel working in CC2017 again...it was crashing PS a lot, but last night I repaired both installations and have it working again. For now, I don't see a need to update PSCC...LRClassic is now installed and seems to be running fine.

I tried out the new Preserve Details 2 feature in PS CC 2018 and it seems to work pretty well. Here's a crop of a portion of the moon after I enlarged 200%

...and the full frame.

OK, 13 items ordered, including the bracket circled in red :)
Now that spare bracket to the right got a link ? :)

I haven't found a bracket just like it on Amazon yet, mine came with the LED light panel I bought I believe. Here's one similar.

Or, with studs

Done. Not knowing the difference I went with studs.
Anytime you think of something let me know!

Gene forgot to ask, when using Preserve Details 2 feature in PS CC 2018, that is when I'm resizing the image correct?
