The Challenge is to recreate a photo you love!
Well not so much that I love this photo but I love the work this photographer has done. Dustin Diaz is a magician when it comes to lights. Strobist. I was going to try and recreate one of the images with a person in it but I didn't have the model and it worked better that way because I have to learn a lot more about speed lights.
So I give you my red shoe and some blue bokeh.
This is the image I tried to duplicate Dustin Diaz
Dustin used a blue gel and 2 speedlights. I used a blue cover on a slave light, which the only way I can control the amount of light is by physically moving it closer or farther away.
Not exactly successful but getting closer. I went to 2 photography stores looking for light gels and they seem to be discontinuing them. The search continues. I used the SB-800 1/14 -1/3 EV 85mm.
Nikon D-300 ISO 200, 1/125S, F/3.2 & 50mm lens.
Thanks to Agent Firefly for his help with these images.
