Photo Safari Precon Atlanta – Ya Baby!


Photoshop World is off and sailing and the clock is spinning out of control which normal. My Sunday post about weather brought in all sorts of questions, the biggest one was, Well? We woke up yesterday to a Noah type event, not good for planes or photographers. But by 1500 when we were at the Dixie Wing of the CAF, we were out and shooting. The folks at the Dixie Wing were Killer! The folks with me from the Precon were great! So we had a marvelous time. Thanks to all!!!

We the morning in class talking about two essential elements in a photograph IMHO, light and storytelling. We then went into the field (air field that is) to work on those concepts. One of the things we did was go over the simple technique I do for taking a pilot portrait. Here I am going over that technique. For those who were there asking about the gear, here’s all I had with me:

Westcott Rapid Box Octa
PocketWizard FlexTT5
Manfrotto 5001B Nano Stands
Shooting with the:
Nikon Df
Nikon 18-35AFS

And this is the final photo of Robert, our cooperative “pilot”


THANKS to everyone for a great day!!!!
