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.

Day 44

Today, doing what I love best. Real photography for a client.

Lind Krelle, a glass and ceramics artist with whom I worked with before, called me with some more work to shoot for her web site and to promote an exhibit she opened at Duffryn House in Cowbridge. I’ve included a shot of my X-rite colorchecker passport, without which shooting glass would be very much more difficult than it already is. Strobist information: SB700 fired visa Nikon CLS bounced of white umbrella. White reflector camera right.

Early train today, time for some shots before work. Cold but bright, great sun and shadows. I’m very pleased with the finished articles, worked in Lightroom 4 and Perfect Photo suite 8. Enjoy
