Back in March G1's Michael Dean asked if I could lend him a hand with a shoot he was doing at his studio in Coatesville, which -- of course -- I said "absolutely" to. During that day I met one of his models, Kitty, and she approached me about getting together to go some casual location shooting when our schedules allowed (which got an equally enthusiastic 'absolutely" from me ... lol),

Fast forward to this past Saturday when we finally got the chance to spend a few hours at her family's place in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Here are a few of what we did that day. Comment & critiques appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

Nice shots Dave,...looks like you had yet another fun day of shooting a pretty model.

I picked up a 20D last weekend, and I'm curious,..do you shoot raw or jpg, what parameter settings, and do you use any of the custom functions? Any tips on the 20D are appreciated.

Oh, and what kind and size of reflector did you use? I know, too many questions, sorry

Thanks Ron and yep, I always do ... lol

Looking forward to a tandem shoot that upcoming with Lee Strickland and two models on Tuesday. He and I struck up a conversation and a nice friendship during an RG Philly workshop years ago and he was kind enough to invite me into this shoot he had set up. Should be a blast!

You'll love the 20D -- I know I do (although that 30D and 5D ARE tempting). What format I shoot with pretty much depends upon what I am doing. But I do have to admit I'm more of an old-school shooter and tend to use the "you better get it right as you do it" JPG as opposed to the "let me cover my butt for now" RAW mode. Grated that there ARE times the higher bits-per channel mode draw me that way, too. LOL

I've been noticeably lazy on parameters for the most part. I do use the b/w modes a lot (though plenty will argue to go RBG and change in PS, I like using the camera parameter's color filters to my advantage so go that route).

I avoid Canon's auto WB at all costs finding it too cool for my tastes, typically going with either the Shade or Cloudy preset or, most often, custom setting it myself.

Bottom line, I try to get it as close to right in the camera. Saves me messing with the pixels later and makes post-production work a heck of a lot faster.

Hey, never such a thing as too many question, Ron!

I have three sizes I use (all 5-in-1 jobbies). The 3-foot circular (my first and nowadays least used one), the 3x4-foot rectangular (use this one the most and the one I used in all the KItty shots -- silver-side), and the 40"x 66" (when I want to fly like a bird on a windy day)!

The latter ones I got the latter reflectors via eBay in one of those life-lesson deals (see below). An amazing price per item -- a deadly screw job on shipping! No worries though, I like them and have learned to pay attention to the fine print ... hehehe

Dave

5-in-1 36x48" Reflectors $17
5-in-1 36x48" Reflectors $17
5-in-1 40x66" Reflectors $24

Subtotal $57

Shipping and handling $73.97!!!

Total $130.97

Oh definitely! LOL

The trick was, they noted that shipping for one would be $25 but that you could group additional items to cut down on cost. Unfortunately I missed the fine print that explained ...

"The way we combine Shipping: 1<SUP>st</SUP> highest shipping cost will be same, 2<SUP>nd</SUP> item reduce $1 from shipping fee, 3<SUP>rd</SUP> reduce $2 from shipping fee, 4<SUP>th</SUP> reduce $3 from shipping fee. If you buy more than 5 total will save you up to $10 on shipping fee."

... even so, at the end of the day, I decided I got three good reflector at essentially $43.61 a pop, so it wasn't like I was totally screwed ... plus I learned a nice lesson in the process -- that counted for an extra .04 cents or so.

Have fun with the 20D!

Dave
