Yeah, this is in downtown Prescott. Single flash, Canon 5D Mark II, 24-70mm L Series

This morning I went out to practice a little portrait work.  Everybody needs practice you know!  Jantina and Elliot came along to give me a hand.  Jantina played model, and Elliot played VAL.

VAL means Voice Activated Lightstand.  Elliot did good, real good!

Everything in today’s post has been through Lightroom 3 already.  Maximum edit time on each of the images was about 30 seconds each.  I’ll probably do more work tonight and select some more images.  And there are 2 completely un-retouched images presented here.  I won’t tell you which ones they are.  That wouldn’t be any fun.  Leaving you guessing……  🙂

Natural light. No speedlite needed here. Just thought I'd try the black and white.

Natural light. No speedlite needed here. Popped the fill light up in Lightroom and warmed it a touch more.

It's fun what you can do with one light!

Pretty cool photo locations here in Prescott if you know where to look. 5D Mark II, 24-70 f/2.8 L Series lens. 580EXII

We got coffee before we started!

8:30 a.m. here at the Firehouse Plaza. Single 580EX II camera right at a slight angle.

So there you go!  I think these portraits came across nicely and without much to do.  I shot with both the Canon 40D and the 5D Mark II.  What’s presented in this post is all from the 5D Mark II.  All shot with the 24-70mm f/2.8 L series lens.  Most images were created with the 580EX II Canon Speedlite with a Lastolite EZY Box.  2 images were shot with natural light.  All images were shot on full manual as well.

In total, we shot under 2 hours and popped through 5 different locations.  All within a 5 block radius!
