A moment before the ceremony from Friday's wedding. I'll post more from this beautiful day soon!
Or power over gels and flash :) I had seen a few great examples of this technique and knew I had to try it myself once the opportunity presented itself.
I placed a speedlight behind a curtain the room. I added a CTO gel to the flash for the sun effect. I believe power was set very low (probably 1/32 - Have to remember to write them down). The main light is another speedlight in a 24" softbox.

Just some fun with a studio light setup. Subject is my buddy, Taj Dickinson. He has a series going with a chalkboard that is really cool and you should definitely check out... if not become a model for as well!
Light here is pretty basic. 24" Softbox camera right with my SB-910. Background is lit with another speedlight (with a snoot).
I was involved in an awesome fundraising even this past weekend called "Sticky Fingers & Snapshots". It raised money to help the Long Island area's Sandy relief efforts, led by the awesome Ananda Lima (a fellow wedding and portrait photographer) and Krista Punsalan. There were baked goods, a clothing drop-off, a raffle and portraits. I was asked to be the photographer and I could not be happier with the way it turned out.
The kids and families were fantastic. Everyone looked great and was patient waiting for their turn in front of the camera.
What a day!
I couldn't have imagined a better, more satisfying shoot. Everything really came together. I was assisted by my friend and fellow photographer, Taj Dickinson, who really came through and helped make this a success. The event raised money which is going directly to help the people in need. I'm proud to have been a part of it!
The event was hosted at a comedy club called The Laughing Devil. I recommend stopping by if you are ever in the area!
For the fellow camera geeks out there, all images shot on my Nikon D700 and 50mm f/1.8G. Lighting was a 4 flash setup with speed lights and radio triggers.
