    This are just some of the dates from the first leg of my new nationwide "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch It" tour, but since we have these dates already locked down, I thought I'd share them. ·  Boston, MA – Thursday, March 24th ·  Minneapolis, MN – Monday, April 4th ·  Indianapolis, IN – Wednesday, April 6th ·  Chicago, IL – Thursday, April 7th Here's how each session is structured (1) I start each session with an empty stage and then I build the lighting set-up for a particular kind of lighting look from scratch, explaining everything as I go, all step-by-step. (2) Then, I actually do a portrait shoot live in each class, sharing all the camera settings, lighting settings, and exactly what you need to do to nail that type of look. (3) Finally, I take those images into Photoshop to show…

    Yesterday our lighting set-up was pretty much for head shots (one beauty dish and a reflector), but for every look we did during the day, I also shot more traditional full length shots as well, but like always---I try to keep the lighting simple, using just one main light. This was shot with a gray background---I added the violet Split Tone effect in the shadow areas inside of Lightroom. Here's the lighting set-up for the shot you see at the top of the page. We used the same exact strobe (the Elinchrom BXRI 500), but we switched out the Beauty Dish we used for the headshots shown in yesterday's post for the 53" Midi Octa softbox, which is probably my most-often used softbox when shooting fashion (It's priced fairly decent for its large size---B&H Photo has it $289. Link). The main reason I switched…

    Well, football season is over (at least for me, anyway), so it's time to move on to other shoots. This weekend I was up in New York City speaking at an event Friday evening (more on that tomorrow), but while I was up there, I managed to fit in a fashion shoot on Saturday morning at Sandbox Studio in SoHo. I was lucky enough to work with the same creative team I did for my last shoot up in NYC (link) and the shoot was coordinated by the coolest Fashion Stylist ever---the wonderful Sophia Batson (link). She coordinated and styled all the outfits, and I got to work once again with Sophia's hand picked hair and make-up artists: Linh Nguyen and Cassandra Renee (they rock!). With Sophia's help, we arranged two fantastic models (Megan [Seen above] and Tanja) through a New York City agency,…

    It was an awesome game. An awesome night! For the Colts, this was a must-win final game of the season to make it to the playoffs. For the Titans, the role of "spoiler" if they beat the Colts in their house. What an incredible atmosphere to shoot in. [Above: I got this shot of Colts Defensive End Robert Mathis as the players were getting introduced right before kickoff [CLICK ON IT FOR A LARGER VIEW]. They run out through a large inflatable tunnel at the corner of the field, and I was in the tunnel, down on one knee---with my 24-70mm lens aiming up, catching the players the moment before their name is announced in the stadium. It's pretty dark in the tunnel, but as each player moves forward, the lights from the stadium partially hit them from the front, and that's when I…

    Last Tuesday I got the assignment from Southcreek Global Media to shoot the Beef 'O' Brady College Bowl Game (at the Tropicana Dome in St. Petersburg, Florida) between the Louisville Cardinals and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. My Fluke Mistake of the Day If you're thinking that the image above looks like it has some clipped highlights, well...you'd be right. At one point during the game, I turned D3s upside down, and leaned it against a wall in the end zone, so I could focus in-close for a series with my 70-200mm. Unfortunately for me in this case, the bracketing button is on the top of the D3s, and it turned on bracketing without me knowing. When I went back to my camera, and starting shooting, it took me a few minutes before I noticed that some of my photos were dark, some were…

    Above: Shot with a Nikon D3, with a 14-24mm f/2.8 lens (at 15mm) at ISO 200, at f/7.1 at 1/5 of a second so I could capture a little movement while he was spinning the fire sticks. Click on it for a larger view). Hi Gang: I just got back yesterday from a nine-day vacation with my family in Maui, Hawaii, and I'm tan, rested, and ready to tackle the busy end of an amazing year (OK, the tan part is a bit of a stretch. I spent most of my time tucked safely under an umbrella poolside or by the ocean). I didn't do a lick of work while I was out there (Matt, RC, and Brad covered for me on the blog), and so I just hung out, relaxed with the wifey and kids (and my brother who came along), read a…
