Alzheimers Charity Event @ The Hand and Squirrel

As a favour to  a fellow Gary Numan fan; the very beautiful Kayleigh Smith. I did some shots for her Alzheimers charity night at The Hand and Squirrel, Talbot Green. Sadly I didn’t get a lot of takers but I did get some really nice images of those who chose to partake. It was useful for me to get the dust off the kit and I was especially pleased with the X-rite color passport which gave superb consistent colour through out.

These two young ladies made the best use of my time, and where not backwards in coming forward 🙂

On the sunday I spent time creating a nice warm portrait look in Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 and the results are below. I hope you enjoy the results as much as I.

Took Nelly for a walk with number one son and caught this image. Re-worked with Lightroom 4 and Perfect Photo Suite 8.5. Really pleased. Hope you like too. Regards Karl Nelly Charging

Day 45

A cold walk to get some “fresh air” into the boys. The promised “Heat Wave” did not appear, and a strong, cold gale blew and chilled the fingers. Some test shots with the SB700 off camera, triggered by the SC-28 cable, hot shoed to the D300. They’re great models these two. I’d pay them, but it’d just go to their heads, lol.
