Central Park Celebration

This movie requires Flash Player 9

Ah, yesterday was simply a great day! Sharon & I were hosted by Adorama & Nikon to lead a shoot in Central Park with 20 really nice shooters. It was nothing short of a really marvelous day, thanks to all who joined us. The morning shooting started off a little slow but as the day unfolded and especially after lunch at Tavern on the Green, the photography was just marvelous. This was the first time Sharon & I walked Central Park and we simply enjoyed every moment of it.I shot everything from 14-24AFS to 200f2 which includes the 24PC-E for some miniature work. It was great!

The photo above was taken at highnoon with the light at its nastiest and was part of the 1 flash demo we did using Jim (who was a really good sport). Jim enjoys his cigars so it was that smoke that made him the perfect model. The final shot you see here was taken using FPSync, 1/4000 at f/5.6 so to blow out the DOF and the distracting background. The SB-900 had a 81a gel in the filter holder and was shot through a -1 stop Trigrip. it couldn’t have been easier.

Here’s another favorite from the day, Belvedere Castle. Had to hang out over the edge to make the shot. Love the fun!

I wanted the folks who joined us to see what I shot during the day so I created this slideshow of 73 images. Since you happen to be out there as well, you can take a gander. Enjoy!
