last flood

 photo rink_zpsyg21akzn.jpg with warmer temps planned for next week this may be one of the last floods for the season. I got up and was on the ice at 7:30 this morning in -34 degree wind chill to get some working shots. This photo was taken closer to 8 but it was still mighty cold on my fingers. the guy working the hose could not have been nicer and it was a pleasure to spend a half hour documenting his work.

light test x 2

 photo portrait_zpsiglixxst.jpg I have a portrait to shoot tomorrow that i have been overthinking so i thought i would do a couple test shots. I was playing with some ideas that unfortunately did not turn out like i imagined so ended up with these. The background in both shots is the same white seamless paper backdrop. The image on the right has a light on the background and the one on the left just has a bit of spill from the main light. My models were great and overall i thought the shots were good but had another brainstorm last night and will be testing more today. The lighting info for those that would like to know is just one large softbox with a big piece of black styrofoam in front of it to narrow it down a bit and the photo on the right has an added nikon sb flash pointed at the background.
