Shooting for the fun of it
I have been in the process of remodeling our master bathroom for months, about 12 months to be exact. I've managed to install the new shower as well as the new clawfoot tub that my wife has been wanting for years.
This past weekend I decided to pull the camera and a flash out and practice a bit. This should be no surprise to past attendees of a Small Strobes, Big Results workshop. I am always telling them to practice with their strobes, I do and you should too.
I shot in and around the partially re-modeled bathroom, focusing in on more detail shots that would make for a great grouping as a wall hanging. Even though these images where shot in color, I prefer the antique or aged B/W.
I used a single Nikon SB-800 flash set to remote and I used an SU-800 command unit to fire the strobe. I hand held the strobe for most of the photos, one I actually just laid the strobe down in the tub to scatter the light for one of the shots.
As a reminder, I'm holding a Small Strobes, Big results Workshop in Buffalo, NY on June 28th. We'll be shooting in the historic Central Terminal Train Station. This is going to be a fantastic location to shoot in. I hope to see a lot of you Toronto folks at this workshop.
