First tintype attempts with strobe- Yah!

That's Bryan Wing, a friend and collaborator.  We have been making plans for a portrait project shooting folks who participate in competitive bearding!

I'm ridiculously happy about this.  I had been working on getting a continuous-light setup going, figuring strobes would be more hassle.  But with this one shoot, I'm hooked!  One BIG massive pop from that strobe head and all the issues about long exposures (including having to explain to my sitter why they have to sit still...  the anxiety that creates for them!).  Sharp, clear details where it is sharp, and liquid melted light in back.  Gorgeous!

Another from the same session this Saturday, Ross Faircloth-

  1. Scott, thanks again for this weekend. It was incredibly fascinating and wonderful. I can't wait to see all of the portraits you snagged from the competition!
