I headed up to BC last weekend as a sponsor of an athletic event, and in support of sponsored athletes. Nothing new there, right? Apparently, Canadian Immigration thought there was a problem.

Ten hours at the border later (which was two hours longer than it took to get in country for this show last year), I finally arrive "in country" to the house I share with a couple of friends, only to find that my strobes (and my modifiers and gels), along with tools and thousands of dollars of stereo and other equipment are GONE. Vanished. Turns out the garage had been broken into and robbed...At least the thieves left behind my stands and seamless...LOL

So, in a panic, I call fellow GG'er and friend Jeff Newton in hopes that A) he's home, B) he's not busy, and C) that I can somehow oblige myself to him to borrow his lights for an all-day multi-competitor shoot the day after the event.

"No problem!" he says! Only I forgot to also mention that I had also lost my boxes and brellas, gells, silks and everything else...

I owe Jeff the highest level of gratitude possible for helping to keep my head on straight after we both realized that we had nothing but open reflectors in terms of "official" modifiers...We wound up using a two light set up for the most part, blasting the main light through the scrim of a five-in-one reflector, and flagging off the hairlight with a couple of bedsheets hung from a pair of c-stands. Garage Glamour, indeed.

THANK YOU JEFF - I couldn't have pulled that day off without you, in many respects. As I said before, anything I can ever do to help you out, I'm a phone call away.

Here are a few very quick samples of what we pulled off...

Jeff is just that kind of guy. The world would be a much better place if there were more Jeffs.

Thanks for the kudos, but it was no big thing. Glad I could help out.

Got me a nice couple frames of Chantal by the window as well....

No PS tricks. Just a whitebalance of 2000K or so.
