More from the insect world. The shot above was taken by reversing a 50mm lens using an adapter. Turns it into a super macro. You have to get really close though and a lot of bugs won't put up with that.
All photos taken with the Nikon F4 using Kodachrome 25 or 64.
Amber stopped by the studio Saturday for some new head shots. She's entering the Miss Missouri United States Pageant to be held in April. We do a variety of shots... some for the pageant, but others that she can use in her modeling portfolio. We also went outside for some shots in the snow in my backyard and also up by the Kansas City Museum. She's represented by the Hoffman Agency. All images Copyright 2013David Remley.
Most of the studio shots were done using a 6-inch pan reflector around the flashtube with another light on the background... some done with a gold reflector under her chin. Others, (yellow) were shot with a flashtube in a large light box with additional flash unit on the background and one on her hair. All outdoor shots were available light only.
The poor phlox this year between the heat and the dryness have pretty much given up the ghost. Very few flowers even though I watered some. These seem happy enough though. Nikon D800, ISO 1000, Nikon 105mm macro, F5.6.
Pendleton Heights finest Victorian Lady is in her festive finery for the Holiday Season. This Queen Anne treasure was built in 1887 for lumber baron Charles B. Leach. Current owners Kent T. Dicus and Michael G. Ohlson, Sr. purchased the home in 2003 and have painstakingly restored it room by room. "Garfield Heights" has a grand entryway... and retains most of its original woodwork... The main parlor adorned with paintings of the owners ancestors and furnished in the Victorian fashion. The home has 23 of its original stained glass windows and all eight fireplaces have been rebuilt. This is the dining room... although you probably could have figured that out. The music room above with it's feline dweller below...Tommie, who loves people but hates cats.
All shots taken with the D3 and 14-24mm or 105mm lenses... ASA/ISO 1000, F16 or F4... multiple exposures for each shot.
