This morning I was wide awake super early. Blasting winds, light snow mixed with rain, and the Airstream shaking with the weather front. But I wasn’t awake because of the weather. Today’s photo shoot was on my mind.
Several days ago I talked to Nick Russell (Ian’s brother) about doing a quick shoot. He’s getting ready for the fire season, and I wanted to toy with some white seamless shooting. Fun stuff, fun stuff!
Nick showed up early, but fortunately I had everything setup. We did a few different shots and I thought I’d share them. The first image has already been masked and clipped so I can drop him in another scene. Please disregard the shadows in that one, I’ve got to clean them up. I did a bad job clipping. Why show an image where I did a bad job clipping? Cause it’s a cool image. 🙂
The first three images had minor edits. Number one was clipped with Mask Pro, and the edgy detail was created in Lightroom. Image #2 was edged up in Lightroom, and so was number 3. 30 second edits on the last two. Below are two completely unedited images. One with white seamless, the other using a grid spot on the 580EX II.
Big thanks Nick! I do so enjoy just shooting for grins and laughs, and today was a good shoot.
