Christina W - Emmanuel NY Models

    Newer Older

    So at the end of Joe Mcnally's advanced workshop he gave us the reigns over the lights and grouped us up with models. I really enjoyed this part as we were able to create our own images, in an incredible space with incredible models.

    We started with Phil and his great rugged perfect face for portraits, and ended with Christina, a very young talented model with lots of energy and looks!

    For my turn with her in this spot I put on my 135mm f2 lens, used the sun as a backlight and went to high speed sync to light her face with a close in sb900 (camera left) shot through a trigrip diffuser. Triggered by an sb800 on camera. It was great getting to work in NY with some great up and coming agency models.

      Thanks all, I knew this was a keeper as soon as I chimped it. Its always satisfying shooting this lens, it may be old and manual focus, but it still takes great shots. (exif is off as I picked the wrong non-cpu lens)

      Wow the pose is perfect and the lighting is super natural... I didn't even expect a Strobist detail until I saw "Joe McNally"
