so, what’s been keeping me so busy that i can’t update weekly these days?  let’s do it in photo form:

assisting Tom Beck on a fashion shoot over at The Commons.  (this is Jamie Ainsworth modeling.)

photographing my Godfather for his new church program book.  (this is one of the more “artsy” shots i shot mainly for myself.)

took some headshots of young Isabelle up there.  (meredith norwood assisted me on this shoot.  my first time ever using an assistant) 🙂

assisted Tom again on an editorial style shoot up at the King Edward Hotel.  (model is Hannah Lyn Bryan)

to wrap it up, this is my friend Rion standing in as i test my light for a shoot i did for Portico Jackson.  (can’t tell you who the actual subject is yet, the photos won’t be featured in the magazine until November)

and that is why i’ve been to busy to do a proper post 🙂

(but expect a proper post soon!)

alrighty guys, i’m gonna go ahead and already call it for this week.

between traveling to memphis tomorrow, being up there for a few days, and then having to get ready for the Storage 24 shoot on Sunday, i just don’t have time to work on a full post this week.

so, an interlude!

my friend Sara Mac is back in town from South Korea and, you guessed it, i’m already working on getting a shoot pulled together for us.

till then, enjoy a few shots from our very first shoot 🙂

i shot all these with my Rolleiflex 2.8d.

this was the moment that sara took one of my all time favorite pictures of me

so, an interlude.

Posted in 2009, Color, Digital, interlude, Photo Post, strobist by William Patrick Butler on October 8, 2009

yep, another busy working week so don’t have time for a full blog post

so, figured i’d show you what i’m starting to experiment with (and will be using this week for what i’ve been hired to do)

i’ve been wanting to get into using off camera strobist style lighting for a while but, y’know, that stuff ain’t cheap (and i like using available light)

but luckily, i have a very cool friend by the name of Lizzie Wright (she of the super spaceship & the bachelorettes) and she let me borrow her gear (because she’s quite a good photographer too)

after that, it was a crash course in seeing if i could figure everything out.

and when it’s crash course time, who else can you turn to but your family (as they, once again, show extreme patience from having me stick a camera in their faces) 🙂

first up, my sister Jen!

Strobist Test

strobist info: speedlite and umbrella are to upper camera right, speedlite set to 1/4 @ 24mm.  camera: 1/125, f/4, ISO 200.

next, my Ma!

Strobist Test-2

strobist info: speedlite and umbrella are to upper camera right, speedlite set to 1/4 @ 24mm.  camera: 1/125, f/4, ISO 200.

yeah, same camera set up and everything, but the sun had set further.

both of these are straight out the camera.  just exported from RAW to JPG.

i took many more than just these two of them but i’m not allowed to post those :p

anyway, many thanks to Lizzie for letting me borrow her gear!  she’s like a cool breeze on a hot summer day 😉

ok, off to bed, have an early start tomorrow

to shoot! 🙂
