A Kick Ass DLWS

Oh man, seriously, where do the days go? Here is it Wed night and we’re at the end of another DLWS. A week ago I was at the Reno Air Race, week from today well be the start of Photoshop World and the time in between, DLWS has flown. It all comes and goes much to quickly!

For our last evening, we headed down to Otter Point, truly a beautiful and romantic stretch of ME coast. For the life of me, I can’t remember what I was taught in a class about this rock other than it is really cool. Whenever I’m there, all I seem to do when there’s no giant waves is crack photography. That’s what you’re seeing here. The twist for me this time was using the 85PC-E and tilting so every edge of granite is tack sharp. I like this stuff!

Then there is my youthful assistant Stephanie. She has in her mind to do a series of leaping images from everywhere we go. She started in the morning with McNally at Jordan Pond and finished  with me in the even leaping over a giant gorge. In fact, she made the leap 33 times. And man, can that girl leap! No, not leap, fly. You have the Karate Leap, Long Jump Leap and the Leap of Joy. Stephanie is a great kid, great assistant and friend. I don’t know of a better visual to say we have a kick ass time here in ME with our new DLWS friends!

Tech Note: Stephanie was shot at 1/4000 f4 at ISO400 using FP Flash. The raise in the ISO was to get the high shutter speed in the darkish light. FP was used to stop the action, a single SB-900 is the light source. Pretty simple stuff, at least when you go to the McNally school of Flash.
