New Orleans! (Part Deaux)
WHAT: Families, Kids, Portraits   |   WHEN: January 31, 2011   |   WHERE: New Orleans
Part Deaux.... hahaha, so lame.  That's about the extent of my French, though, and for some reason people in New Orleans insist on using "eaux" to spell every word that has a long "O" sound.  What can I say.  Paris has the Eiffel Tower and amazing art, Venice has charming architecture & beautiful canals, New York has Broadway & glamour galore, and New Orleans has "eaux".  Oh, and beignets, which I would argue is just a tad seaux much more impressive.

Here are my workshop images from last week in New Orleans.  In some cases we had some models for the hands-on shooting sessions, and in other cases we just photographed each other.  About the first two thirds of these were photographed using just available light and reflectors, and towards the end of this post are some off-camera flash images using a simple one or two flash setup.

Lindey, one of the photogs in New Orleans, brought her two adorable kiddos out for a mock children's shoot.  Both Ben and Pailyn were fantastic!



Haley photographing Kelly.



All direct sunlight in the middle of the afternoon with a silver reflector to the right of Ben to provide some fill light.



What's up, G.Q.?










Loved this light on Haley.  Very simple setup with the sun lighting her from behind and a silver reflector off to her right to provide some directional light.



Isn't Pailyn ridiculously cute?



We serendipitously stumbled upon this little spot between two houses with sunlight coming through to light up this spot on the wall.  Thanks to Tim for adding a little more light with a reflector to Karen's right. 


Loved this setup.  Karen dresses it up pretty well, too.


Lindey and her kiddos!




The rest of the images in this post were photographed with off-camera flash providing the light to separate the model from the background.

BTW, we totally scored a fantastic model in Simi.  She was the MC the night before at the Cat's Meow and graciously didn't kick Tim and I off the stage during our hideous karaoke butchering of Friends in Low Places.  Tim asked her if she would model for us the next day, and she was fantastic.  So natural and fun in front of the camera.





Love this series on the we side walk and street.  This was lit with a flash in from of Simi with a 22 " soft box modifier attached to it and then another flash on the ground behind her to provide a little light to separate her from the background.  In fact, if you look above her right boot, you can see a cable peeking out that connected the 2nd flash to a Pocket Wizard wireless transceiver.  Oops.  Photochop musta missed that.


Really dig the vintage b&w feel of this one.


Again a two flash set up.  One in front and to Simi's right with a 22" soft box and a second flash behind and to her left to help separate her from the scene behind her.


A single flash laying on the ground abour 10 ft in front of Simi and pointed up right at her.


Probably my favorite image of Simi.
