Remember: only one image each week!A good Wednesday to everyone, and a hope that you've been out, Nikon gear in hand, making photos. I was inspired by a recent thread started by PN member David Fred. He was exploring the work of fellow UK photographer Matthew Seed, who does some striking strobe-lit outdoor equine scenes. I don't keep horses, but I do have dogs ... so out I went to work on an in-the-woods scene with my faithful canine subjects. The idea was to go for that sliver-of-sunlight-in-the-woodsy-clearing look. I used a Buff Einstein at full throttle (640WS) in a gridded beauty dish up on a 13-foot light stand. That makes a pretty bright, but nicely constrained puddle of light. With that power over the afternoon light, I was able to use a high enough shutter speed, and stop down enough, to create a nice dark wooded environment with a fairly well-lit dog. Has another photographer's handiwork had you stand up, grab your gear, and give it a go? Share a photo!
