Sam, 15 Months

Sam turned 15 months old on Feb. 10. He is starting to look less like a baby and more like a little boy.

I already posted this on my gallery site and on Flickr a couple days ago, but I wanted to post it here on my blog as well.

Technical Info:
Canon EOS 5D, Canon EF 28-70/2.8 @ 47mm, Canon Speedlite 580EX + Opteka Mini Softbox, 1/250 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 200


Playing with Off-Camera Flash

Inspired by the Speedliter’s Handbook, I’m dedicated to learning how to get more out of my small flashes this year. I just purchased a second Canon flash (a 580EX II to go with my 580EX) so I thought it would be fun to play around with the wireless off-camera E-TTL features. For this shot, I used the 580EX II on-camera to trigger the 580EX in a mini softbox, which my wife was holding off to the right of the camera. (Thanks for being my light stand, honey!) The 580EX II on my camera was disabled so it didn’t contribute any flash to the exposure.

Sam was much more interested in the flash my wife was holding than the camera, which made for a great opportunity to photograph him when he wasn’t looking straight into the camera.

Technical Info:
Canon EOS 5D, Canon EF 28-70/2.8 @ 38mm, Canon Speedlite 580EX off-camera + Opteka Mini Softbox, Canon Speedlite 580EX II on-camera (disabled), 1/60 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 400. Shot in manual mode with no flash exposure compensation.

Sam is learning to feed himself

Sam is learning to feed himself. His methods are crude but effective…

Pinkies Out

Sam can’t eat granola bars yet, but he doesn’t let that stop him from trying to eat the wrappers. Here, he demonstrates the proper etiquette for wrapper consumption.

Technical Info: Canon EOS 5D, Canon EF 28-70/2.8L @ 53mm, Canon Speedlite 580EX + Opteka Mini Softbox bounced off the ceiling, 1/13 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 400


Sam Throwing a Ball

Sam Throwing a Ball

Nothing artsy today… Just Sam throwing a ball. His right hand seems to be becoming more dominant lately, but he still switches it up once in a while. It’s still too early to know for sure if he will be a righty or lefty.

Technical Info: Canon EOS 5D, Canon EF 28-70/2.8L @ 70mm, Canon Speedlite 580EX + Opteka Mini Softbox, 1/400 sec @ f/3.2, ISO 400

I saw this while I was picking up Sam at daycare, so I took a couple of seconds to capture it on my phone with the Camera 360 app.

Liz Ashley #147

Here’s another photo from days gone by. This photo was taken back in July, 2007, when I shot with model Liz Ashley from Texas. Sometimes it’s good to go back and give a second look to photos you overlooked before.

Speedliter’s Handbook Found

The delivery company finally found my lost copy of Syl Arena’s Speedliter’s Handbook. I have no idea where it’s been the last week since they claimed to have delivered it, but it finally turned up on my doorstep yesterday, slightly damp but none the worse for wear.
