Photoshoot: Cher [07/16/09] @ "Sunset Studio"*

Had a photoshoot for my girlfriend for fun [and to also expand my folio. tee hee]. Set up was at her garage and I brought enough to set up this photo below:

A roll of white seamless paper supported by stands [and clamped by my Home Depot A-grips]. Main light was Alien Bees ABR800 with the 56" Moon Unit attached on a boom powered by Vagabond II. Background light was a single Alien Bees 400 set to f/16 since I didn't have room for another light to cross light. And for sure I had my iPod Touch hooked to my JBL portable speakers to keep us all company.

I had my friend Karen help me out with makeup [Check out her blog as linked]. She was also in front of lens not too far back [if you remember this shoot].

We took about 30 minutes or so taking pics with this white background set up but I actually enjoy taking pics more in "natural settings."

Single Alien Bees 400 with umbrella triggered with CyberSync transmiter/receiver. All metered with my Minolta Auto Meter IV [on dining table].

As usual, I take pictures with the people who I work with although Karen refused to take a picture. =P

The edited pics will be posted soon. Stay tuned!

*Sunset Studio aka Garage outfitted with equipment.
