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.

The best way to store digital photos

The best way of saving digital photos is an external hard drive array in combination with cloud storage. I recommend the Synology 1513+ disk station to anyone who is serious about their data!

    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.
