52 Week Project: Number 23


Alright so this week I did not prewrite my blog like I normally do on Monday. I was working on a special project which I can not wait to share with everyone. This week I am writing this blog on my phone on the way to a funeral (my great uncle just passed on Thursday). I do like the fact I can blog right on my iPhone. When I go on a trip it makes it so I can stay connected with everyone.

So this week was a little different for me. While I was at the beach last weekend I had an idea for a portrait. The idea was for me to hold up a sign that says "free kisses" and see everyone's reaction. I was going to do that after the pier portrait but since I loved how the portrait went I decided not to do it. I'll save that one for a later week. 

Setting up for this portrait was pretty easy. I had my partner in crime Jordan wright the words on the carboard. (You wouldn't be able to read my hand wrighting).  After we headed to the street in front of the studio. I had to be careful about where I put the light since I didn't want to blind any drivers. The light was to the left side of the camera with my travel softbox. I really like the fact that I now have a travel kit. I do need to upgrade the flash and the transmitters but hey I get what I need with the equipment I have. This week I went back to the good ol Fuji. I do like this camera way more then my DSLR (I know I keep saying this, buy one and you will see). 

Well that's it for this week. As always let me know what you think of the portrait. 


52 Week Project: Number 2!


 Brrr its cold here in va today! Its not even going to hit 20 today. Anyway last night me and Jordan went to find a location for our week 2 self portrait! We decided that a field would be best for us. 

We sought out on our adventure to Pole Green Park! Very nice open field that we could drive on. (if anyone from the county is reading this then I apologize for driving out there). I was going for a sunset kind of photo with nice warm colors! just as the sun was setting a huge cloud covered the sun! I was furious but grabbed another strobe and through a nice orange gel on and got this amazing photo!

Lighting diagram for the shoot is below! I will post a video on how I edited this photo or how I would edit it again sometime this week!
