Galleries Updated – The Banshee Photoshoot

Kindred Spirits InvestigationsI did a creative photoshoot tonight with a model and friend revolving around the mythical “banshee”.  It was a shoot specifically done to create 2 logos for a friend of mine.  The logo’s are included in the gallery.  Special thanks to my friend and model, Kat Bajorek, for freezing in the cold so I could get this project completed. 



Travel BansheeThis project was my first attempt at doing “on location” work with Nikon Speedlights as my only light source.  It was after dark, in an outdoor setting, with a tempurature of about 40 degrees.  Kat’s backyard worked wonderfully for the theme I needed.  I used 2 SB800’s on stands with umbrella’s, and an SB900 as a back fill light.  I fired the Speedlights with my build in “commander mode” in my D300.  Controlling power for each flash using group settings.  A very convenient feature that I’m sure I’ll learn to appreciate in the future.  Due to being outdoors after dark though, I struggled with focusing on the model, and not all of my shots were in focus.  (They were deleted of course.)  All in all, I’m happy with the results of my first attempt at this type of photography, but any constructive criticism is appreciated too.
