Prana .:. Portraits

Last week at the Boulder Theater Waylon Lewis of Elephant Journal fame hosted his Walk The Talk show at the Boulder Theater. Among various festivities, there was a fashion show. Clothes were provided by prAna and Rachel Z Art, and the extreme hair and makeup by Urban Pearl Salon.  I snapped some photos of the models before the fashion show out in the alley, when I was in a situation where i could control the light and background as I wanted. Pretty cool, huh?

On the technical side of things, I used my DIY Beauty Dish for this shoot.  I had it high and slightly camera right and mounted on a Nikon SB-800 Flash, with another unit illuminating the chain link fence backdrop.  I’ve gotten those RadioPoppers triggers pretty dialed in at this point, and I really like the control panel on the Nikon SB-900 Master Flash.  The Poppers allowed me to utilize high speed sync and stop down the ambient shade and still shoot at f/1.8.  These images are all straight out of the camera, only a little contrast was added
