Some new photos

Just thought I would share some new photos from a shoot that I did for a friends fundraiser.

This one has a V.A.L. with a light behind the book and a second flash camera right clamped to a bookcase. 
This one was a softboxed SB-800 camera right and a second in the back camera left to bring out some detail in the background.

both of the fire shots were done with a SB-800 in a soft box camera right and then a second SB-800 clamped to a chalkboard back and camera left.

And now it begins!

After 16 years of work I feel it is time to take a serious stab at shooting photos full time. I quit my job on wednesday. After three years of working there I got really tired of dealing with the general public and being treated like an idiot.
Tuesday I leave for two weeks of shooting climbers at the New River Gorge. I am getting pretty excited about this new direction that I am going in. The next few months I am going to be shooting for a month off and on along the north shore of Lake Superior, hiking in the Boundary Waters and a couple climbing trips to Wyoming. Wish me luck and keep checking back for new posts.
The image above was one of the first things I shot when I figured out how to use my SB-800's wirelessly with my D300. The main light is camera left, an SB-800 in a softbox, the red light is from another SB-800 on the floor firing up with a red gel and the exposure was about 30 seconds to get the LCD light to burn in nicely.
