    Now for something very different from the content you guys usually see from me...I did a paid family photoshoot a few weeks ago, my first shoot of the type. I gained a newfound respect for the family photographers out there (though, of course, that sector of photography is still saturated by soccer moms with their first Canon Rebel)

    And of course, since I like a challenge, I shot this strobist style. Though a 72" umbrella backed off from the subject tends to be pretty forgiving.

    This was the first shoot I did where I extensively used HSS during the session...I think I'm in love with my AD200s (Flashpoint eVOLVs). This was shot using two in the AD-B2 accessory, with a 43" octabox.

    That's really cool. I've been toying around with a few light systems, and Godox/Flashpoint is the system I've been reading about the most, but I still haven't convinced myself to actually buy any of them... yet. Natural light has been my go to this entire time.. and a single sb800 that has seen better days :p

    Speaking of natural light:

    I'm like northrop. Well, more like too lazy to lug stuffs around. :) Pretty impress with how much shadow recovery we can get from these new cameras. This is shot at 10 pm under pretty poor street lights.

    I'm losing my touch - forgot to bump the iso with the polarizer on so everything shot wide open and therefore soft.

    A couple decent ones.

    I think I've been watching Cyberpunk gameplay one too many times... I might have to tone down my editing :LOL:

    Toned it down a little, but maintain the saturated colors

    Sunrise in RMNP - the Labor Day traffic to the Bear Lake parking lot was definitely no joke. By the time I left around 7:45 AM, the parking lot was absolutely, 100% full and I passed numerous cars going up as I went back down!

    Note to self - do more astrophotography at the beginning of nighttime, right after the end of blue hour. I caught some absolutely crazy color in the sky a few weeks ago. Not photoshopped!

    It's that time of year! But to be honest I don't think the Black Hills are that great for autumn colors. There's not as much variety as I'd prefer, compared to other places I've been.
