Quick post today. I was asked to take an image of a new employee for our website. I didn’t have my lights with me so made this image with the Nikon D4S | Nikon 85mm f1.4 lens |ISO 100 f7.1 @ 1/60 sec | Nikon speed light 910 with flash modifier. Not my normal portrait setup but it needed to be done quickly.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
You would think after spending 2.5 days in class last week, the last thing I would want to do is take on more training. Well yesterday was kind of iffy weather wise and so I got hooked on a course on portrait retouching and I spent over six hours with that class. I learned some amazing new techniques and short cuts. Of course when you consider that the average person only retains about 25% of what they see and hear and are only able to process 25% of that it into useful skills it doesn’t amount too much training at all. 🙂
I experienced one of the best speakers Friday that I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. He was one of those engaging, funny, knowledgeable, and entertaining people you just enjoy being around. He spoke almost non stop for 1 hour and 20 minutes and when he had finished it seemed like only five minutes had passed. It is by far the best training session I have ever attended. How I would love to have those skills.
Not much in the way of a post today. Just didn’t want to go two days without posting. The Great Egret coming in for a landing is from a shoot we did a couple of weeks ago at the 16th Street Basin. They are such a graceful bird and I enjoy watching them fly, fish, and just stand in the water for that matter.
Enjoy your day and thank you for stopping by the blog. I will have some fresh images for you tomorrow. Be careful.
