Nikon D810 First Outing

After receiving one of the first Nikon D810 cameras to hit the US, a couple weeks ago, I FINALLY had a chance to take it on its first real outing. As part of the compensation package for an event I’m photographing, the client included a couple free tickets to the Hootie and The Blowfish Homegrown […]

Anatomy of a Bridal Portrait

I thoroughly enjoy photographing Bridal Portraits. And Brooke’s was one of my absolute favorites this year! We met at Middleton Place, which is a gorgeous venue to begin with. It was a beautiful day with lots of nice natural light to work with. But I knew that as the shadows got longer and the sun […]

RadioPopper Mounting

Tons of photographers have asked me over the years how I mount my RadioPopper Px system to my Nikon flashes. So I thought I’d take a few photos to show what works best for me! Personally, I can’t stand those flimsy plastic brackets they send to mount the Receivers with. The foam “doughnuts” that are designed […]

EZY Box Double Trouble

Like the legendary Tinker Juarez…I’m always “tinkering” with my gear to make it work for my style of shooting! I love working with light modiers like the Lastolite EZY Box to help soften the light. Unfortunately, firing a single off-camera-flash through that diffusion material robs it of a lot of power. Using battery operated flashes up […]

Lightbending with Alison

I had really enjoyable Lightbending session with Alison Stanfield and her assistant last month! She’s a phenomenal photographer. Check out her work at http://alisonstanfield.smugmug.com/. But she mostly works with natural light and wanted to expand her repertoir by mastering her off-camera flash techniques. Since she’s already such an accomplished photographer, she didn’t need the full […]
