Awesome finish for an awesome shot Gilles! I can't believe this was pulled down to 6.38!

@nutzito Half-strength colour temperature orange gel on the flash, which was triggered by a set of PocketWizards, the FlexTT5 on the flash and the MiniTT1 on the camera.

Excellent work here
Congrats on the HM!!
Could you please "translate" : "1/2 CTO" and "PW Flex & Mini" :-)

Very nice shot, great setup. I love how you not only adjusted the focus, but also the light, that was clever and works very well!

I'm giving you a 7 for storytelling. Well done.

Excellent. Looks like I'll see it on the front page tomorrow.

I like this take on the "missed" focus, especially the OOF model's great defensive posture!
05/27/2010 12:18:10 PM
Great work. One of a very few I've seen that really meets the challenge to me.
05/26/2010 01:55:38 PM
I like your idea here. Very creative =]

great concept.. the girl in the foreground has a perfect expression.. only wish the girl in the background had a more flirtatious/sultry/interested look.

Hits the challenge exactly. OOF on what "should" be the subject, to selectively focus on what "should" be oof.

good idea but I'd like to have seen much tighter less perfectly composed framing as if the viewer picked her out of a crowd
05/25/2010 04:19:48 PM

05/24/2010 10:03:53 PM
