Day 5

I shot this image when the carnival was in town. When I saw the scene my first thought was some one needed to stop the senseless slaughter of stuffed carnival animal because is some one doesn't speak up for them no one will. I shot it with the P7000 and processed in Lightroom.

Day 4

I just really like the lines with this one. I shot it with my Nikon P7000 and processed in lightroom.

A simple image for today.

I have tried to shoot this several times with different lenses and lighting situations. This time it was shot with my Nikon P7000 with natural light, processed in Lightroom.

A cool thing about the P7000

When your working with flash outside one thing that is always hard to deal with is the sync speed of the camera. Typically it is around 1/250 of a second but with most Nikon DSLR's and the Nikon SB flashes you can get up to around 1/4000 of a second. The problem is that you have to practically be on top of your subject with the light to get it to work properly and it really sucks power from the batteries. But with the Nikon P7000 point and shoot camera you can get sync all the way up to 1/2000 of a second as easily as if you were shooting your DSLR at 1/250th and it isn't a power suck like with the DSLR.
The above image was shot at 1/2000 of a second at f2.8 and it was part of a burst of five images. I used a Nikon SB-900 camera left tethered to the camera with an SC-17 cord. Then I processed it in Adobe Lightroom.

About time

You have to love when the weather works in your favor, even though these storm clouds cut the shoot a little short but it added a lot of drama to the photo. For this image I had a quadra head running through a softbox above Caitlin on a C-stand.
