When I plan shoots I go all out...with site surveys, sketches, casting, lens selections, etc. The post of a couple weeks ago with the Pre-Raphaelite photos went round and round on my burners for almost nine months.
This year's shoots should be just as rewarding if all goes as planned.
The photograph of the boulders and train trestle was shot at ISO 160 with -.05 exposure compensation, aperture priority at f6.7 shutter 1/90th of a second with a polarizer.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you on one of my walkabouts!

holiday poundage) and running and gunning in a photographic sense.
My first photo session of 2012 was shooting some publicity shots for my son's band, The Penny Dreadfuls. Now shooting a rock and roll band is always fun (well, most of the time). You get to work with different wacky individuals who are up for just about anything and you can photographically play with light, color, body types and shapes, clothing, positioning, a variety of backgrounds, and a little adventure in post production.
These shots were with the Nikon D80. I used a bare snooted flash outdoors for fill and a white shoot thru umbrella for the interior. (thanks to the Coffee Shop in the Square in San Marcos)
Outdoors, ISO was set to 100 for maximum effect and 200 for the interior. Flash was usually set to around 1/4 power.
Thanks for stopping by...and may this year be a happy and prosperous one for you and yours.
