New York, New York

Yup – last post from New York City, this time with model Anna. After Joe McNally Advanced Workshops we stayed in NYC for weekend, so it would be a waste not to shoot a human being:)

Our hotel was in financial district, so we decided to do location scouting there, and find some interesting locations. I knew that I wanted to capture glamour and commercial look of our model Anna and NYC.

When we saw that golden revolving doors with “broadway” sign, we knew that would be our first location. Even better – they were closed, so we didn’t have to watch for people walking thru them:)There was only one but: sunlight… I was hoping for building shadow, but it was too early for sun to hide behind the buildings. In this case I had no other choice than go E-TTL.

For this pictures we used umbrella and Lastolite reflector to better control (block) sun light:

Another good thing about our hotel, apart from great view, was that it was close to the location that we were shooting – so Anna could go there and change outfits and do makeup (yes Anna is a full package – she did her hair and makeup).

No E-TTL here, simple SU-4 mode: 2x SB800 thru Lastolite diffuser for upper body and lower body. I setup my 580EX II on camera @ 1/64 – just enough to trigger remote flashes, but not to contribute to the exposure. Bad thing about using SU-4 in street photography: any flash will trigger SU-4 – that’s what happened when some guy was shooting us with his point and shoot with flash (he was hiding too, so it took us a while to figure out what’s going on:)).

Softbox with SB800 camera right, and another SB800 camera left for hairlight. Also SU-4.

In the evening, Anna got us access to the roof top of Riverbank West building. We didn’t have much time, and it was quite windy, so we used really simple setup that worked pretty good: SB800 via SU-4 thru Lastolite diffuser. I had my 580EX II on my camera for triggering SB800 and AF assist, but most of shoots I focused using live view, and I gotta say – I’m getting used to that, and I’m liking that Liveview feature!:)
