Hacer, Scott and Sandra

The final shot of the day, which took a little bit of pre-preparation. Scott and I organized that he would be drenched and photographed at the end of the day, and this is the best shot of the batch I took. (Coincidentally, not the one where he was the wettest!) Thank you to everyone who […]

In this case, an optically triggered SB800 (on loan from the group organizer) at arm’s length at camera right, held in my left hand, whilst holding the camera in my right hand.

CHOO CHOO, Bern Strobist day

Strobist information: individual flash units on 1/2 power, zoomed to provide spotlight effects on the band members and held by fellow photographers out of shot. Ambient light underexposed 2 stops and heavy Photoshop work to clean up the scene. Although this scene did actually occur – several times – this is a mix of two […]

This is the kind of shot that I hope to achieve more by continuing to work with CHOO CHOO in future. They’re a great bunch, not just musically but […]
