We had a wonderful time working with Hannah & David again! It has been a few years since their wedding, and now they are happily expanding their family :)
This session took place at the Roulette Fire Hall, where both Hannah & Dave are fire fighters (as you may have guessed). We actually bumped the session up a few days because their baby started making some decisions to enter the world a little early!
We are really looking forward to returning to the firehall to make a magical and totally unique set of newborn images!
For the image above, I may have got a little bit nerdy with the camera skills. I wanted to make a something extra special - and I always love a good opportunity to expand my own camera skills. So - I used a technique that we've posted about before called "Light Painting". This is where I mount the camera to a tripod, then create an image set, where each image is made with the flash highlighting specific objects, then I merge them all together in Photoshop by hand. I find it to be fun ;) Look at the slideshow on the bottom to see the images I used to make the final!
The nerdy details:
Nikon D300s, tripod mounted. ISO 200, 1/125 @ f/11. Key Light - Nikon SB900 through 24x24'' lastolite ez box camera right, Back Light - Nikon SB900 bare - Triggered by Pocket Wizard Flex system. Manfrotto grip. Once we did the pose, I shot 40 frames of the trucks, each I illuminated different aspects, and hit the ceiling with a strong bare backlight to match the pose. I ended up using 32 layers in photoshop to mask/dodge/burn everything together for the final composite, then I cropped and adjusted a little contrast in Lightroom.
