Here is a couple of quick snapshots I did before going out the other night. Taken with off camera flash, remotely fired with Nikon Creative Lighting System, but could have been done just as easy with a TTL Sync cord.
Been playing with the concept of using a light table for product photography lately. Not completely happy with the results, but it’s a good start. Figured I would share my first attempts and general setup.
First a couple a quick test… I thought I would try a small clear object
Here is a good example of how the table can add depth to the product. In this case an older lens I wanted to sell online.
Lastly, here is what the whole thing looks like setup. I am using Nikon’s Creative Lighting System to remotely control all the flashes from the camera.
Taking a trip to Seattle, I had to make a small trip to Centralia, WA for some work. While there I ran into a crazy art house. Guess I need to remember to get off the freeway more often.
Work on our new office is nearly done! We have completed the lighting, painting, and moving in the furniture. Next up is getting some of our prints into large frames and up on the walls. We even added a nice couch so that customers can sit and review their prints on site.
Some quick pictures:
Well regardless if you agree with that or not, you can shoot their portraits just like a persons. Here is a few from a portrait session for a cute little Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
Hope everyone has had a great year, and we wish everyone the best. We are looking forward to the new year. As you can see covering Santacon left me beat!
Went out and tried to get a few more shots for my Nocturnes series but didn’t really come across anything that was working for me. Here is a few interesting shots that I did get, however:
We just installed a new reverse osmosis water filter at our home. Luckily I am pretty good at handyman type jobs, and was able to get through it although the instructions had horrible pictures. Here are some of the pictures I took to show how good photographs can make all the difference for your customers between a happy experience, and a frustrated call for support.
Finally, we have a new website! Still touching up the photographs and migrating over the gallery, but it’s really coming together. his is our new blog section where you’ll be able to get all the latest news about our company as well as our own personal commentary on news events and stories happening in the areas of Photography. We will also try and post local events and happens in the Portland Area related to photography as we find out about them as well.
