Let’s talk about gels. Every light in this image is gelled. The background light, the rim lights and the main light are gelled. You can see the way I gelled the softbox in the reflection in Alexa’s eyes. Just put two orange, or CTO gels taped to the front of the softbox. You can also put the gels on the inner diffuser.

Next time, I will use a neutral density filter to get my aperture down to 8. These are F16-F22, so they are not as sharp at [...] Read More
I can’t believe I missed this picture at Circus Maximus when I was going through my rejects.
Raleigh Wide Open was a blast. I picked up my niece in Lumberton and brought her up to the capital to hang out. It turns out, we were having a big festival. I told her that this is just how we roll on Saturdays. She didn’t seem impressed.
