Day 235/365 - It all starts up here.

So I got that call I was hoping for and now I have a tiny bit of work to do and I'll have secured funding for my newest trip. I plan on getting a ton of texture and background shots of the desert, rocks, caves, mountains and general "out west" stuff. I will be out there for roughly 3 weeks in which time I will visit the following cities in Nevada; Reno, Fallon, Battle Mountain and possibly Virginia City. From there we will drive to 29 Palms California and then to Los Angeles. If you are in any of these area and would like to shoot, let me know.

 

Today, since I had actual work to do I decided not to go all out and great some mystical photoshop masterpiece. I felt an interesting and simply lit shot of myself would suffice. I lit this once again with a boomed beauty dish. I just love the amount of possibility you have with such a simple piece of gear. Unfortunately I wont be able to take it with me as I think its considered a threat to airline safety. Well, then again… nail files are now prohibited. I recently heard a joke about that. "if someone could successfully highjack a plane with a nail file, they deserve the plane" Well I don't know about that but it does seem that eventually we will have to fly naked and without any luggage.

 

I will be figuring out how to take my gear again. I just wish I could have stands waiting for me when I get there. Its just a pain in the ass to carry C-stands cross country!

 

Well, its now time for some work. I'll be sure to get it all done before going to sleep so I can wake up and tackle the next item on my long to do list.
