First let me apologize that I don't get on here as much as I use to and as much as I'd like! I'm just swamped spending hours and hours everyday in Photoshop! I so need an intern!

I wanted to share one of my favorites seniors I've shot this year. What a doll Kaitlyn is! I'm hoping to kick off my workshops later this summer so here is a sample of what I'll be working to share with others. I love the way these turned out!

Here are a few of the pages from her senior book. The id number below may not be the page number. The rest of the book can be seen on my website under client viewing.

Would you mind sharing the lighting information? I have a similar shoot coming up and this is what I've been envisioning!

Did you have a specific one you are thinking of?

I can tell you a little about my "process."

The outdoor cycle shots were taken near sunset and exposed about a stop under the sky. I have a pretty good system I use where I don't worry much about the definition of field in these shots.

Lighting in the cycles were 2 Alien Bees and a Vagabond. If I recall on these I didn't use an umbrella or soft box because I wanted the light a bit more harsh.

I had one light camera left and about 6-7 feet high, I then had one more light camera right behind the subject using it as a kicker so I could separate her from the background. It is very clear in posting 3 with the image on the right. Usually my kicker light is about 1 stop less then my main light because it bounces off the subject brighter then you would think.

For me the trick is getting the ambient light the way you want it first, you do this by controlling the shutter speed at a setting where you can either hand hold the camera or it is OK and preferred to use a tripod. Once I get my shutter speed around 1/60th trying to keep the ISO as low as possible) I then use the appropriate aperture that gets me the ambient setting I just worked up. I then use a light meter to set my strobes or my 580 EX II's. The great thing is now I just bracket the shutter speed and I get different looks for the sky but my subject stays properly exposed.

So for example if I wanted to keep my ISO low and I had it at 100 and I set my shutter speed to 1/60th then my aperture might call for say f/11 (this is just an example.) I then meter my strobes for f/11 main and f/8 for kicker. Now I can take several shots and just adjust the shutter speed to change the exposure of the sky up and down.

Keep in touch and maybe late this summer you can attend one of my workshops where we will do this hands on.

Does that make sense?

Sure does! I'm muddling by without a light meter right now. I mainly use the histogram and eyeballs. A light meter is on my wishlist though.

Are you workshops going to be local to you or are you traveling? I would certainly be interested if funds permit!

Hey Tay, those look phenomenal. Did you get any shots of her making a rooster tail with her bike?
Also, are you keeping that workshop up around Dallas, or you coming to Houston? All the great shops happen up there, and never come down to the drrrrty souf! :(

Thanks Everyone!

I do hope to do some traveling with my workshops, I suspect it will be the major cities in Texas first but since I have friends in Atlanta I'd love to do one there! I did fly out and shoot an engagement session there a couple of years ago.

GET A LIGHT METER! I don't use mine all the time because I get lazy (and I usually pay for it), a histogram will lie to you, without a light meter you just can't get the mids just right which is very important when shooting people!

I agree on that last picture...it is my favorite head shot. I really hate shooting in studio but Kaitlyn made it real easy!

We've used one in all of my classes and I still thought I could get away without one. Now that I'm seeing the results, I finally purchased one! What a difference it can make!
