Reserved a GREAT room location for 5 photographers! I'm keeping the photographer count low so as to afford everyone an ample amount of shooting time. I think ideally this will be for people who haven't had much (if any) studio lighting experience. The best part about all of this? IT'S FREE! We will explore studio lighting ala Scott Kelby's presentation in his "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" tour. Kelby made it all seem very straight forward - funny how the pros do that - using one and two lights. I'll be bringing a couple of Alien Bees; 1 with a 22" beauty dish and the other with a large softbox.
Our participating model for the shoot:
Ms. Toni Cervantes
Other tidbits - I'll be using my eye-fi card to stream to my Ipad for a "poor mans" wireless tether, and if I can make myself finish packaging it, and talk Lee into using it, he will be using the wireless usb system I built to wirelessly tether to his laptop, running lightroom. My laptop is not up to lightroom but I had fun putting it together, and it does work well with my desktop systems. Total cost on that project is hanging right around $50. Beats the heck out of the $600 for the real deal from Canon. If you are curious about the usb I just copied the procedure from
You'll have to scroll down a ways (it's one of the earlier versions - there is a link to purchase the usb dongles for $38 from Cables unlimited) but it's worth the small effort if you're at all interested in that sort of thing. If you do build one I'd be happy to answer any questions that you may have during the build. I bought the version that comes with a docking base to make connecting external power easy. Ugly but easy.
