The T3sk3y Defenestrator

T3sk3y Studios is now open for business

With the arrival of a package from Alienbees.com last week, T3sk3y Studios is officially open.  My next great photographic adventure is to try a little DIY studio photography.  Besides being a fun hobby – with two kids, it ought to be a money saver vs. paying for photos of each kid.

My setup includes:

Okay, the wireless triggers are a luxury – but they are a great addition.  Add a receiver to each light, pop the transmitter in the hotshoe, and presto!  Everything fires.

Adding the light meter makes it just about automagic.  To get the right exposure – you take a reading right underneath your subject’s chin by clicking the light meter and hitting the test fire button on the transmitter.  Then, it’s just a matter of entering the exposure and aperture into the camera in Manual mode and firing away.

How’d everything turn out?  Mostly great.  Check it out!

 It wasn’t all perfect.. I had the umbrellas a little too close and in reflector rather than shoot-through mode.  This gave me funky umbrella-shaped specular highlights on her eyeballs (which I edited on the above picture).

So.. anybody want family pictures taken?

    Consider yourself booked for a photo shoot with baby Jacob or Chloe when you are down here in January. Maybe it will be the birth announcement?
