Yoga at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs

So while out shooting running and other fitness images, I decided to take a few yoga shots.  The back ground was so peaceful looking, I just had to create some peaceful looking images.  This location took a while to find, but offered some amazing views of the Garden of the Gods.  I was shocked how well the mountains lit up, and the detail that ended up in the frame.

This was the first time I used some of my new Hoodman gear.  It was great!!!!  I ended up using the HoodLoupe 3.0 Glare Free LCD viewing loop.  For the first time in a long time, I had no trouble viewing the images on the camera.  This little tool made a big difference, and will be used by me, for most every shoot.  This was a big surprise that it worked so well, and made my life a little easier.  Which we all need on photoshoots……so a big hit in my eyes!!!

Another piece of equipment used for the first time was the RAW 675X UDMA 6 Hoodman 8 GB CompactFlash Professional 500,00 Cycle Cards.   Hoodman sent out a tons of these cards, and it was used for the first time.  So I guess I have only 499,999 more formats on that card…..which will take me sometime to get to….but I’m on my way.   I have nothing but great things to say about the cards….and that only seems right.  They were fast in the camera, and my download of 8 gigs took no time at all.  These little guys are getting so fast.  I will be testing out some of the equipment soon,  then posting the results as they come in.


Shot details: f/10;  1/60 sec; ISO 100
Focal Length 70mm; EF70-200 f/2.8L IS USM
Camera Details: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III

Behind the Scenes!!!!!!

I will be posting a behind  the scenes from this photoshoot.  It was an early morning….3:30am call time, and we did a cool video to go along with this shoot.  I should be posting it soon, within the next week.  The video was completed by Deanna Washington Photography located in Georgia.  Link to her site. Its around 3 minutes long and shows what goes into my shoots : )

Model: Kari White- What a pleasure it was working with her.  Nothing was impossible….and I look forward to working with Kari again!!!
