_DSC3404

This evening my camera club had a photo shoot on a local salt lake. This is the first time I've tried photographing "models". It was a great evening, but my wish list for photography gear just got a lot longer.
Lovely, very atmospheric!

it is a nice shot!

This is great! I know how you feel though, re. The gear after a portrait shooting lesson.

Wow! What a shot! So atmospheric! (and the model is gorgeous as well - lol!)
I know what you mean about having a long wish list - mine is getting longer all the time as well!

lol

what do you want?? we have a portrait session next camera club meet (and been warned my lovely Pentax won't work the Canon linked lights!!)

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Iā€™d love a decent flash, some light stands and reflectors would nice too šŸ˜Š

I find it too much hassle to put up tripod, so take loads of slightly camera shake fuzzy pics and then remember to resort to tripod. Think not ready for more specialist stuff in my photography journey!!???

Great first model attempt - fav!

A fabulous shot and great setting.

Great photo. They're good fun, model shoots. @30pics4jackiesdiamond My Pentax works with some of the triggers that members brought. You wont get TTL features, but that doesn't matter!
February 25th, 2018  
@ellida thank you for that info, but what;s a TTL feature??
February 25th, 2018  
Beautiful photo. Well done. Great shot of the man and background.

Nicely captured Merrelyn :)

Wonderful portrait.

Fabulous portrait.
February 25th, 2018  
That's a really nice portrait. The flash or strobes with the sunset sky in the background worked out very nicely. I'm very curious to learn, if you don't mind sharing, what items made it onto your wish list.

This portrait is excellent....

Beautiful portrait FAV

@30pics4jackiesdiamond TTL stands for 'Through The Lens' and is a feature that allows the camera to set the flash automatically based on the ambient conditions. Pentax has TTL if you are using their own badged products, but TTL tends to be individual to brands.

I think you did a really great job of this.
February 25th, 2018  
Awesome picture.
February 25th, 2018  
@mbrutus Thank you. It's a very general wish list as I don't have any lighting gear. I'm thinking a speedlight, reflectors and some stands, but I need to do some research into lighting set ups.
February 26th, 2018  
Wonderful composition, I hope you can get everything on your wish list. FAV

Fabulous portrait, Merrelyn! I've never shot portraits...definitely something to think about trying. :-)
February 26th, 2018  
Terrific capture Merrelyn :) No doubt that wish list is growing!
February 26th, 2018  
This is exquisite. I know what you mean about photo equipment wishes - I priced a macro Saturday, I almost fainted!
February 26th, 2018  
A lovely capture.
