Staten Island Shoot

May 14, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I had a great time photographing my long-time co-worker Erin Elder and her fiance', who is a very nice and friendly guy.  We started by the lake and moved on to the beach.  The beach photos proved to be my favorite.  I was able to use my knowledge of strobes, learning from David Hobby, and inspiration from Ed Pingol, naming a few important photographers. I used the D800, which I found to be very good.  It functions very well in daylight, though the file sizes are huge!

I had a few technical difficulties with my PW IIs.  I ended up using my FlexTT5's, which worked but as regular tranceivers/receivers without hypersync ability.  I read somewhere that PW is working on firmware updates.  

 

We had some great light and clouds at the beach.  

 

I love BW. And I am trying to emulate film-like photos with grain etc.  

 

Overall, a great day!  I was initially worried about not being able to be able to wake up in time.  I was partying from 3p to 3am and got home by 4am.  I also had lunch at home in Queens for Mother's day.  Good thing I only get hung-over right after drinking and no morning/whole day hangover!

 

We ended up having a very delicious dinner by the beach!
