Did a shoot with Jenny and her friend today. We ended up sneaking into the construction site at the new civic center that they are building here in Old Town Temecula. She needed some shots for a deadline for Wet Seal. Also, this was the first shoot I did with my new 40D! I am so stoked on it! It is basically the most beautiful thing in the entire world hehe. It just feels so much more professional when it is in your hand because of the bigger body, stronger build, etc. On top of that, last week, I finally just went ahead and bought some light stands and umbrellas so I don't have to carry around my gay DIY softboxes + the heavy tripods that I use to mount them. It is just so much more convenient to be able to carry a light stand and an umbrella all in one hand. Anyways, for this shot, I really wanted to capture a sort of rebellious/snotty sort of feel and I think I did pretty well. To do this, we took some dried cement/joint compound powder that was in one of the window sills and smeared it all over their faces, arms and chests. This is definitely my favorite shot of the day. Strobist Info: Canon 430EX camera right through umbrella, 1/4 power Triggered via PocketWizards Strobist Info: Canon 430EX camera left through brolly, 1/4 power Triggered via PocketWizards ;D This was one of the earlier shots of the day. We found these two big packages of insulator and put them on top of each other to make them look like a couch and then dragged our couch in front of the entrance to that room so that the viewer could really get a sense of our location.
