Jaime Pico filmed much of the event and will begin editing the video as early as this week. He NEEDS (digital) copies of your final images to include in the film. The images will complete the cycle of concept -> setup -> finished product. I don't want to just start yanking images off of your photostream without permission so please let me know if you have an image you would like included. Please include your name/email/url as you'd like them to appear in the video as well.

Nope, not at all. It looks like it's going to be a couple of weeks before he's able to start editing. Thanks for the rush though.

He's welcome to use my photos off the stream, but I'd rather mail him a disc with all my images in case his taste differs from mine. I asked for an snail mail address on the other stream but have not yet received a reply.

I've uploaded the decent shots from that day.

I think I was the only one NOT shooting with a strobe of some kind. Hopefully I don't get kicked out of the "Strobist" group for it. :)

Merry the Holiday to all!

Stereoblind,

You did me a huge favor by showing me your colour correction diffuser thingy. And if they are common, well I guess that shows about how often I go to camera stores these days (almost never).

Mike,

Consider it mailed; well as soon as I return to Oregon and our beautiful city at the end of this week.

-Color correction diffuser? Can you elaborate?

It was a kind diffusion filter for white balancing. Basically you stick it over your lens and aim your camera at primary light source from the position of the model while setting your white balance.

He said they cost about $30, though I still haven't bought mine yet. I briefly test drove his and it seemed there was a marked improvment in the temperature of my raw image.

I think he was talking about the ExpoDisc.

ExpoDisc, correct. And I believe I underquoted the price a bit. Bet on closer to $100.

With one light source (one type/temperature) it's miraculous. Glad it helped Ken. :)

The one you saw me with is the "neutral". There is a "portrait" one and others apparently. Neutral is 18% Gray if I recall. Quoted from the site linked above:

"What is the difference between the ExpoDisc White Balance "Neutral" and the Expodisc Warm Balance "Portrait" filters?

The ExpoDisc White Balance "Neutral" Filter is designed to be used in all photographic lighting situations where it is necessary to set a neutral white balance. It is the most versatile of the two filters.

The ExpoDisc Warm Balance "Portrait" Filter is designed specifically with the portrait photographer in mind. It produces a gentle warming effect, similar to what you might get using a Wratten 81A filter."
