My Bass and light play

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

 

Now that I have a light stands that I got before that marathon photo session with over 200 LuLaRoe garments, I tend to find myself playing with light more and more after the kids are asleep.  This shot I got with a 45w shoot through umbrella (constant light) lighting the face of the Dean Guitar body and the floor.  Then to the camera right I had a second 45w shoot through umbrella (constant light) lighting the front of amp and stool.  Then behind the amp I put my grandfather’s old Sunpak flash set to a 1/16 power.  But the exact placement of that light took a while to get.  Started with that light facing the wall, but then I settled on placing the flash on the far right edge and nearing touching the back of the amp and having the light bounce of the amp to the wall behind.  The Sunpak was triggered by an optical slave, I don’t have pocket wizards so my Canon 580EX II was on the Sony’s hotshoe and set at 1/128 power then bounced directly off the ceiling above to trigger the Sunpak behind the amp. It was a fun hour combining constant light sources with the 2 flashes.

Sony A7 and Black Diamond

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Perhaps you are asking what the Sony A7 has to do with Black Diamond?

Not too much directly, but through the viewfinder of my new camera…

The two melded recently.

If you don’t know what Black Diamond is, well I’ll tell you a little bit.

They are first a climbing gear company that has been a piece of the climbing fabric as long as I can remember.

Secondly, they’ve been utilizing media in a profound and immersive way through their digital catalogs they’ve released in recent years.

You can check out their sweet spot here: Black Diamond Catalogs

In my climbing, I’ve certainly used my fare share of Black Diamond gear and have looked up to their Ambassadors for the sport of climbing.

Perhaps now you’re ready to see how these two drastically different companies came together in my vision.

It was this last month, during my AMR Reach and Treat Academy Finals Exam process. Specifically, during the Navigation segment.

The light was greatly diffused through a dense cloud cover and then through the tree canopy and finally around the outer edges of our covered working area. It actually felt a bit like evening, though it was midday.

My buddy Erik was pulling through some calculations, I decided to take advantage of the moment. The following image pulled through my lens and onto my new Sony A7’s sensor. This ended up being my first image I edited in my newly updated Lightroom processing software.

It has become a current favorite of mine. So without anymore delay, here is where and how the Sony A7 and Black Diamond came together:

A few days ago on my way home from a night shift I stopped by the Burnside Skatepark.

I was a bit excited to see the photo op that just fell in my lap, a whole crew was at the park with supper bright lights. An artist was at work creating a HeMan themed make over to the parks features.

To top it off, I had my new Sony A7 to shoot the images!

I have to say, I have renewed my interest in promoting my photography. Since the I acquired the A7…huge upgrade from my Canon 40D.

I have officially switched from Canon to Sony.

Thank Sony from being ahead of the game!
