The latest update of my book, “The iPod Book” is now on press (Apple changed so much with the latest release of their iPods, including the iPod touch, that I pretty much had to rewrite the book from scratch).

Here’s one of the lifestyle shots from the book. (That’s Photoshop User TV news anchor Stephanie Cross in the shot you see here. Click on it for a larger version). I shot it using one light; a 7′ Elinchrom Octabank with an Elinchrom Ranger Kit [strobe and battery pack] positioned to her right (it is one amazing strobe!). It was shot with a Nikon D200, at f/8 at 1/125 of a second, and it’s shot at 800 ISO.

Now, you might be wondering why I shot in a studio at ISO 800. That’s simple; that’s what the camera was set on from my previous shoot, and I forgot (once again), to change it back to 100 ISO. Luckily the shot came out properly exposed, and didn’t have too much visible grain. Anyway, just another peek into the life of the world’s most forgetful photographer.
