Return of the Gentleman

MG 9999 Return of the Gentleman

Jean-Philippe, shot today yesterday for an upcoming micro-website “Return of the Gentleman”… I rigged a hotshoe flash to a 20″ beauty dish, and used a wireless trigger. worked like a charm. the’s framing was not accurate enough to get the dish out of the way, so I quickly switched to my friend’s 5D… man, I love that camera, except for the pokey autofocus.

    Yep, that image has the 5D look. Great camera. But too big for my taste.

    Gotta love the 5D (what I shoot for my street photography as well). Big and clunky, but gets the job done.

    Oh yeah–great lifestyle portrait BTW.

    Hi! I’m loving your street photography. Found you via a YouTube video where I was mostly looking for this song – Shearwater – Landscape At Speed.

    I’d LOVE to know more about how you’re rigging your beauty dish to a hotshoe flash (speedlite?) and whether it’s handheld or on a stand?

  8. That beauty Dish looks fantastic! I love the lighting there.
