Headshots of Suzy and Richard for the Strobist Boot Camp II
Best viewed on a black background here in my photo blog
This shot was taken for strobist.blogspot.com’s Boot Camp II, Assignment 1 (strobist.blogspot.com/2009/06/boot-camp-ii-first-assignme...). As we were taking the "normal" headshots, Suzy commented that she free dives and has free dove to sixty feet! I can’t even image how one can do that, but needless to say I am very impressed. That got me thinking…while I am sure when they said in the assignment to "Make it Appropriate" they didn't quite mean this, I thought what the heck and we headed out to the pool :-)
Strobist Info: Shot at around 2100 Hours outside in the swimming pool with the pool light on using my Canon 5D Mark II and the new 24mm f/1.4L II lens. A Canon 580 EX II camera left at approximately 1/16 and an Olympus Flash camera right at approximately 1/32. Both were shot through 42" Westcott umbrellas.
