Simply a collection of miscellaneous stuff today:
As my adjunct tenure at McIntosh College comes to a close ( for those unaware, the parent corporation is closing the school) I am so incredibly lucky to have as my final group a crew of highly motivated and talented photographers to work with. Talk about getting to go out on a high! Last night I asked one of them – Rachel Swain – to shoot a new photo of me for my soon-to-be unveiled redesigned website.
Talk about an intimidating task – shooting the teacher. Rachel quickly got over her jitters, we played with the lights some – I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut! – and after I monkeyed around with the lights – for those who are technically interested 1 strobe with a small softbox very close to the subject and 1 strobe with a snoot powered way up and behind and to the side – I shot a quick frame of Rachel to see what was happening – WOW!!! Even she loved it.
She then went on to get an excellent photo of me and we went home very happy – a successful class, no doubt about it.
Its no surprise the day ended so well – it started with a walk on the beach – ANY day on the beach is a great day – with wife, daughter and dog. Hard to know who enjoyed the beach more if its even possible to measure. There’s still a snow line above the tide line and the weather was nothing short of incredible.
