Yesterday I had planned a shoot with a friend of mine. Unfortunately, they had to go to Sedona, and I don’t blame them for not making it. Heck, I need to take a ride to Sedona soon. Haven’t been up in a while.
Since I had no subject to photograph you’d think I would just reschedule for another time. But honestly, I had a few ideas, wanted to setup my gear and see what I thought, and go from there. Heck, I’d photograph a chair if I had to just to see whether or not my plan would work. Fortunately, while at the Art Store I was able to rope in an assistant and get a few test shots to work with.
Renato is a newer member of the Art Store, and a pretty cool guy. He’s also a local artist and if you want to see what he does go to his website, www.faustiniart.com. He wandered into the studio area where I was setting up 3 speedlites and my 5D Mark II. I asked him if he wanted to see what I was up to, and boom. Fired off a few shots and go figure the unplanned stuff ends up being stuff you like.
So, how did these images come together? Well, 5D Mark II, 1 580EX II, 2 430EX II’s, a few light stands and some other stuff. I’m not ready to jump into the depths of the shots yet, but you can bet in the next few weeks that you’ll be seeing some new images here and there will be a lot of discussion on how they came together…….
I’ll give you a little teaser…… Next week watch for some new belly dancer images that should really grab you! 🙂
