Just returned from teaching a flash workshop in Las Vegas for Photo Quest Adventures. We worked with some fabulous models, including Priscilla, a dancer I have worked with before. She can come up with an amazing array of costumes, poses and ideas, no doubt a reason why she is in demand as a show girl. We set up on a dry lake bed right before a storm, which worked perfect for adding drama in the sky and blowing her scarf horizontal. This image was lit with 2 SB900s, one aimed at her and the other at the end of her scarf. To make the image more dramatic I underexposed the background around 1.5 stops. Shot with a D300s and 24-70mm.
On another note, I am very excited to be joining the ranks of Kelby Training with online training videos focusing on adventure sports. If you are not familiar with Kelby Training, they offer a huge variety of online training videos on topics from photography to photoshop, check them out when you can.
