Joseph Malone

Donated my time for a good cause. Smiles and laughter can be a better payout than dollars and cents. This is going to be one of those random things where I’ll chat about a photo. All the camera info can be seen as well as my reasonings behind the image.

Aperture: f/9.0

Exposure Setting: Manual

ASA: 200

Strobe Flash: Did Fire @ 1/1 power

This is going to be one of those random things where I’ll chat about a photo. All the camera info can be seen above but reasons are going to be down here.

Rider info – Joseph Malone from Battle Creek, Mi.

Location – Summit Point – Battle Creek, Michigan.

For – Battle Creek Skatepark Project. Donated my time for a good cause.

This is another image that I used strobes for.  Most of the shooting I’ve been doing Lately has been with strobes. This particular image I used a Elinchrom Quadra synced to camera via Skyport transmitter and the Built-in receivers in the Quadra pack . The flash was mounted on a Light stand high camera right. I was full manual on this shot. I had the Quadra at full power in an attempt to be at a F-stop high enough to keep a large part the rider in focus. I really wanted to get the city background to show and the riders to pop against the background. Image is also cropped in camera and not in post (Lightroom 3). My biggest and really only complaint about this image is my shadow can be seen in the bottom of the frame and the horizon is a little tilted.
