Figge Cellars: December

Happy Holidays.

This was my shot for Figge Cellars for our December collaboration.

Below is my setup:

One Nikon SB-800 through a white umbrella at probably 1/32 power.

Shot with my (favorite) 85mm f/1.4 at f/1.8 on my D700.



One more with cookies.

Metal Heads.


Last week, a cool opportunity cropped up where I found myself shooting some stills and, more importantly for the sound factor, some video of three friends jamming in one of the guy's record store.

After hours, Angelo (guitar), Keigan (bass) and Bob (drums) set up in Bob's store—The Vinyl Revolution—and played loud, heavy rock for a few hours.
