I am still putting the finishing touches on Cary's new website. My hope was to be done last weekend, but as usual, life infringed. Maybe this weekend I will get a couple hours of uninterrupted detail oriented website-design time. I'd love to add these new images.
I have been trying all sorts of new ways of utilizing my strobes in the studio. For years, I have adhered to a pretty standard boring static softbox from the top, shooting downward sort of position. With these new light modifiers, I have been working with multiple white cards and diffusion fabric, and shooting into the white cards to create a bigger light source... which it turn makes the shadows softer and it cuts down on the glare (although there tends not to be much glare with Cary's pots).
Next week we start the transition into more portrait work as the Fall gets underway and kids are heading back to school. My plan is to talk about some of our new ideas for high school (and college) portraits, as well as family and holiday portraits... over the next couple blog posts. Should be interesting hearing what folks have to say.
Which begs a question... does anyone care about the technical aspects of how these were shot? Does anyone want to know camera settings? lenses that were used? light modifiers and placement? Does anyone care? Let's hear about it in the comments.
