I just setup a Facebook page for my photography. Please like me if you like my photos :) Thank you!
Day 46 of Project 365 (Feb 15th)
Another valentines shot with SackBoys. Will you be my Valentine.
Today was our photoclub again, and I had prepared a bunch of tabletop setups for everyone. I gave each person their own flash and radiopopper trigger. I was pretty much helping everyone all night, so I didn't even end up taking a photo until after everyone left (our tuesday meets usually last 2-3 hours). This was a cute scene setup by Jaime (someone in the club). We had setup a piece of glass in front of the fireplace, which was propped up on a Tupperware box, some rose petals, and some chocolate cupcake candies and a heart shaped marshmallow in his hand. I used the 100mm Macro for this shot attached to my manfrotto variable magic arm to the tripod (see the behind the scenes) and i rearranged the scene a little so it wasn't exactly the same as Jaime's pic. I added a few more candies. I also threw another light in the scene.
Strobist Info: So this shot has 2 speedlites in it. A 580ex II with CTO gel on Top Left, and a 430ex II with CTO gel on top right, triggered with radiopopper jrx. Shutter kept open for about a second to capture the ambient light. Dont forget.. when you are mixing flashes/strobes with ambient light (the lights that are already in the room) you will most likely need to use a gel (piece of clear plastic) over your flash to properly balance the color of the light from the strobe and the color of the light in the room so they match.
