photo assignment: bboy type shoot

So this week’s strobist assignment was pretty dope. It was pretty much a test shoot for more of a skater/bboy/athlete type photo shoot. The group got larger this week as well! We tried out a new spot and really at first just tried to see if we’d get kicked out, it ended up going so smoothly we all got to shoot/set up the lighting to our liking. It would have helped if we actually had someone that fit the profile, but we just shot with what we had. Maybe next time I’ll bust out some pre-2002 bboy freezes! hah! (i dont think that’ll ever happen). I used my newly acquired alien bee 22” beauty dish, and al’s new century stand+boom combo (which is next on my list of purchases). We used 4 lights, ab800 fill from above, 2 sb800’s from sides for rim, and sb900 up top for accent light.  The thing with these photowalks is mainly time. Some of the Canon guy’s  cameras were having a hard time focusing in the dark, I wasn’t having problems with that, my own eyesight was my enemy. I couldnt see where the rear sb900 was, and endedup with the flash as a specular highlight more than an accent for the person. (it kind of worked out in some photos though) anyways, every tuesday in the las vegas area we’ll be doing this.
