Hanging On

Hanging On, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

This is definitely one of my favorites shots of 2012 and probably of all time. I love the way the light works with dark area behind Shane under Hedge Creek Falls giving a great background. Shane is busy holding the rope for Farren as she is doing a solo climb up the face of the Falls. His intent gaze is wonderful.

Lights – Camera – 2011

Lights – Camera – 2011, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Well I guess it had to happen. It’s been a while and I needed to get out the flashes and do something with them again. Of course the easiest model to use has always been myself unfortunately but until I get one of those heads they use at the beauty school I’ll have to do. Since I started reading the “Speedliters Handbook” by Syl Arena I’ve been itching to get out the lights so I finally did today. Forgot how one of the flashes test fire worked so I thought my batteries were dead and I needed to charge them up. I did need to charge but I ended up doing this way too late as usual but at least I have all 3 lights and how they work clear in my head now. Just wish I had cleaned my specs off first.

Here’s one from December. I did a family portrait shoot with a friend. This young man is stationed overseas and was home for Christmas.

Downtown Action

Downtown Action, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here is one from the Redding walk. I like the look the telephone compression gives here. With La Cabana sign and the sidewalk full of people (and the compression helps with that view) it reminded me of big city street or possibly a street in Mexico. The Topaz Adjust also gives an interesting look.

Redding Crew

Today I led a group photo walk. It was part of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk which he has organized the past 3 years. I’m glad that i did it. I wanted to do it last year but didn’t feel like I could but felt OK this year. I put together a route through downtown and in the process learned some of the local history.

Met some great people and hopefully some of us will see more of each other. I believe some will join the Shasta Photo Club. Anyways it was a great experience and I look forward to the next one.

365/126 – Really Post

365/126 – Really Post, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

OK. I’ve tried to refrain from this but it has to be done occasionally. I got a 3rd strobe and need to start working with it to see what I can do. Unfortunately I didn’t write down the lighting info and now I don’t remember all but I did have the 430EX II and reflective umbrella high camera right and the Vivatar and shoot thru umbrella low camera left fired with the optical slave. I had my new (old) promaster flash as a hair light with the Honl grid. This was fired with a Promaster module as a slave. The Canon strobe was fired with the RadioPopper JrX and the main light.
And Oh yeah. I used some Topaz Adjust and PS filters to try and pretty the portrait up. (ha! ha!)

365/125 – MarketFest

365/125 – MarketFest, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here is one from Marketfest and the Zydeco band that played. I really didn’t like how it turned out so I used a photoshop artistic filter and give it the filmgrain effect.

Dancing Heals

There have already been some nice Marketfests this year as the weather has been cooler than normal. Most have been under 100 degrees which really rocks. The band last week was a Zydeco band so the music was sweet. Loved the back light on this happy dancer.
