  • August SDPF Group Shoot Discussion/Planning

    Best time for me right now would be this Saturday, the 22nd.

    Morning light, or wait until ~5PM to get decent sunset.


    I could use some practice setting up a quickie head-shot, maybe we could all practice that on each other...Strobist style if you got the gear, otherwise reflector/white cards for fill and we all shoot each other, and then we go for our normal photowalk/split up.



    Or, we could do a quick 30min walk-about, and then grab our laptops and upload to compare.

    Always think positive, but expect the worst and nothing bad will ever happen.

                    I can't make this Saturday, but in regards to doing quickie headshots I have a few techniques I use that is really affordable:

                    I have 3 normal smith-victor stands and 2 SB-600s on two of the stands that I control with either the SB-900 or just the pop-up flash (depending on how much output I need from the camera) and then (if needed) I use the other stand to hold a reflector. I then place these 4 different lighting elements around the subject accordingly.

                    Note: I hardly ever need all 4 lighting elements, I usually use two or three.

                    So this is great if you do not have a crew and it is just you and the model and all of it is light weight and can all fit in 2 bags you carry easily

                      I'm thinking a 50c piece of white foam core is affordable!

                        haha sorry, my bad, yea I looked back at my post and probably should have left out the affordable part.

                          Well, depends who you are.


                          If I had a job I'd probably think a set of 600s and a 900 were affordable.

                            Fix, you rock the natural light. Throw in your 50c reflector and you're golden. I'm the only one that I know of that has done headshots at night and/or in dark parking garages. Of course, there was this odd ball incident...

                            Throw a little light. If it doesn't come back, it probably fell off...

                            Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 It's the older model w/o the AF motor and it focuses FAST. It's just like the 17-50, only longer.
