Eat the shadow.

I. FEEL. THE POWER! (To balance outdoor light over a largish area.)

Got a new piece of gear. It's a reflector that throws light at a 45 degree spread forward. I combined the reflector with two Strobepro X200s, bare bulb. 1/200 at f11, full power, no grid. I used a wall in Cathedral neighbourhood as a testing ground. I'm pretty happy with the result. It wasn't a full sun day, a bit overcast, but my sense is that now I'll be able to balance the shadows on largish groups in bright sun.

Here's another test shot. Hmm, the tree is pretty shadowy.

Holy frijoli. I balanced the shadows of a  tree  in near full sun conditions.

I think it'll open up some new possibilities. All these images are just test shots, no edits.

I'm back doin' the Google thing

A while back I wrote how I gave up doing Google Business View work. It was 90% sales, and 100% no fun. But as The Dude said, new shit has come to light.

Basically, now when a local business owner wants to get her Google on, she can still call me up, I do the shoot, but then I hand-off all not fun stuff to my colleagues in Vancouver. Now it should be 90% photos, 10% sales, and way more fun.

And that's that.
