My first time shooting with a model. It's not perfect but for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased with myself. Was shot outdoors in the golden hour with just the sun as the main light and a reflector for fill.

Left the house at 6:30 this morning to go down to the Austin Boardwalk to capture the skyline at sunrise. Spent about ninety minutes down there waiting for just the right light. Ended up blending two images, the primary image was taken just a few minutes after the sun came up and the second image about 30 minutes later once the trees were more lit up. What I wouldn't have given for just one interesting cloud though!

In todays blog post I am "Revisiting the Past" with a photo I originally took 4 years ago

What’s Old Is New Again It doesn’t matter the skill, whatever it may be, the more you do it the better you get. This is particularly true in photography. When starting out you’ll inevitably frame shots poorly, have focus issues, and most likely process…
Dawn of the Storm II. A re-edit of my 2011 photo "Dawn of the Storm." This time no HDR was abused in the production of this edit. Instead only humane practices such as exposure blending were employed. OLDER POST. What's Old Is New Again. It doesn't matter the skill, whatever it may be, ...

Portrait photographers, what are your thoughts on this kit? I currently don't have any real lighting equipment and I'm looking to get some.
