Happy Thursday and Happy New Year’s Eve.
Yesterday was a real treat for me. Right in the middle of all the year-end pressure and tasks that absolutely have to be done by today I got to take a short respite from work and do a photo shoot across the street at the wonderful Decker Hotel. One of our departments was getting ready for a new promotion and they needed some photography. Well they only had to ask once.
After the team photos some of the team decided they would like some “head shots” taken, which of course is one of my favorite images to make. I used my Elinchrome portable strobes and two large soft boxes to get the wonderful soft light that you see here. I was very pleased with the results. The only problem I had was I forgot to bring my favorite portrait lens the Nikon 24 – 70 mm f2.8 so I took these with the Nikon 28 – 300 mm f4.5, which is a good lens, just not best choice for portraiture.
It was a fun break and I was able to help out one of our departments so it was a win – win.
Exciting things happening at our organization and it is fun to be a part of it.
That’s it for today. Have a safe and sane New Year’s Eve. Thanks for stopping by the blog. I wish you the best year ahead that you’ve ever had. Be careful.
