Deer Park High School Soccer – Deer Park, Texas

It’s been a while since my last post!  I’ve been real busy shooting action soccer for Deer Park High School in Deer Park, Texas.  Check out www.cmitchellphotography.com for many more images!  Click on “View My Pics”. 

For these shots I was using my D3s set to the auto ISO setting with the ISO range varying between 6400 and 1600 and the minimum shutter speed at 640.  This lets the camera automatically set the ISO for me based on the shutter speed that I want!

Here’s the first installment of my Projet 52.  The topic for this week was “Newness”.  It just so happened that my sister-n-law is expecting!

Carolyn Pregnancy - Baby Belly Pic

This was taken with a white muslin backdrop and 2 SB-900’s.  There was one Flash on each side of the subject and aimed directly at the backdrop.  If I’m not mistaken, they were both at full power.

OneLight - Shaw

OneLight - Anderson

After attending the Zack Arias OneLight Workshop, I’ve been really trying to learn more about lighting.  I’ve been experimenting with different ways to light the subjects in portraits.  I’ve played with grids, snoots, and other modifiers.  These images were both taken using only one light directly infront of the subjects with a 60 inch umbrella.

On a different note, Today is January 2, 2012, Last year at this time i attempted a Project 365!  WOW my hat goes off to those who can complete this! It’s a ton of work and dedication. I quickly realized that there was no way I could complete it!  This year I decided to do a Project 52.  One image per week for 52 weeks.  The first image will be posted soon!

A Photog buddy of mine, Marc McKinney asked me to go shoot a live band at Warehouse Live – Houston with him.  The first band up was called “Life As Lions”.  It was somewhat of a challenge to shoot live music due to the continually changing lighting!  You can view the entire gallery here…

Here is another one that I took trying to perfect my onelight portrait skills.  This one was shot with a Nikon D3s, a Nikon 200mm f2.0 lens, and a SB-900 with an umbrella triggered with pocket wizards.
