Despite avoiding "Crazy Mike" (a drunkard passer-byer who wouldn't leave us alone), we managed to grab a shot for the night. Erin bought this new under dress thingy (that's the technical term) from Betsey Johnson (same place where the wedding dress was purchased), and it makes for pretty awesome twirling! :)
But of course it was freezing and windy outside so this had to be done quick.... so this is one of four shots we got out of the series.
Alright... and on with some Q & A from emails...
Q: "The distances, flash power settings, aperture, and ISO settings don't match Guide Number (G.N.) of your flashes in your diagrams... help me understand?"
A: Anyone curious enough to break down my shots from the strobist info set may often scratch their head around the numbers.
If you've tried to duplicate these setups, take special note that there are other things that contribute to altering light such as light modifiers themselves. This includes the umbrellas, softboxes, and gels. Not to mention in other cases you have to account for feathering, whereby when a light is not directly pointed at a subject, but simply feathered off in another direction.
Q: "What font is that in your photos?"
A: Although answered a dozen times, it's Trajan Pro. It's a very pretty serif font. I recommend "if" you're going to use it in your photos, you should at least buy it (I did). There are a million other fonts out there, try some of those.
