Day 288 ~ Chris + Lindsay
|The weather here in Ohio's been amazing, and the fall color has been even more amazinger. Yes, amazinger. It's great being back "home" and relaxing a bit, but I'm also doing just a little photography while I'm here. Today I met up with Chris and Lindsay. Chris graduated a year ahead of me back in HS, and it's been nearly that long since I last saw him, so it was fun catching up and capturing them.
I've got my laptop with me, but I don't like editing on it because 1) it's slooow, 2) I don't think the display's properly calibrated, 3) it's slooow, 4) I alwas end up oversharpening my images on my laptop because I get lazy and don't zoom in as much as I should on the smaller screen, and 5) it's still slooow.
That being said, a post isn't a post without an image, so here's just a couple from there session for now. More to come...
And I can't forget to mention my rookie assistant, fantastic host, and long-time buddy, Michael (a.k.a Schrode). He was great today, and best of all, I got back to their house with the same number of lens caps as when we started. Oddly enough, I get excited about that. This image below isn't fantastic, but I wanted to 1) give Schrode props, and 2) show a simple way to add light to an image on-location. I usually bring a small soft box to add light when I need it, but it's a pain to travel on a plane with, so for this session, I just had Schrode point a Nikon SB-800 flash (in manual mode) into a silver reflector and I fired it remotely via a Pocket Wizard.
