Actually a backwards approach:

Custom WB to the strobes, which made the tungsten hot lamps silhouetting the dancers look red, no gels needed

Had my first try at a portrait session. We didn't want to drop the coin on a pro photog for maternity photos, so I decided to give it a shot myself. I wanted the learning experience anyway, and we'll save the hired guns for when the little one gets here. It was more difficult than I was anticipating especially with gear issues and limitations, but rewarding. I took about 175 shots, and ended up with about a dozen good ones. I still want to do an outdoor shoot if the weather cooperates.

I was going to make a guess as to the lighting set-up but then I saw a shot from the album and I am pleased that I was pretty close in my thoughts to how things were positioned.

Thinking about selling my 24-105 L for more primes.
How much are they going for in the market these days?

Lake Michigan, random stairs into the harbor.

Lighting this was annoying bc of the ridiculous wind... had to use 3 sandbags per stand.

edited to add: also shot this with my camera upside-down, since I was well above sync-speed at 1/2000.

Awesome pic! Pardon my ignorance but if you're above the sync speed how does shooting upside-down help? Are you avoiding the curtain this way?

These are excellent. But I wish you had doused her with water right before.

Thanks!

And yep, you got it!

The sky is all ambient lighting, so it's unaffected by the flash so it doesn't need to be synced with it. However, the camera needs to be turned upside down since the second curtain terminating the exposure runs "upside-down" relative to the image (so does the first curtain), from bottom to top. So in incorrectly synced pictures in the normal orientation, you'll see the black bar on the bottom as it begins to zip up.

That would end so horribly with the 15-16 windchill. We were literally taking breaks every minute.

VERY interesting information. Thank you, I'll have to try and put that to use one day.
