    May 18, 2006, 11:29 PM - Blastech Photoshoot #1

    During the CA photoshoot I had my first opportunity to work with colored gels and they made such a positive impact on the photos that I came right home and bought some for myself! Blastech was kind enough to come up tonight and model for me for several hours while I played with lighting and colors. He is a real trooper (no pun intended) and endured a lot of standing around while I made adjustments and changes. Here are a few of the test shots we tried. Some were greater successes than others... Thanks, Jesse!!!

    That first one is really great; it looks just like the carbon-freezing chamber!

    Brak's, I love the drama that the Blue and Red Gels create! The modled lighting really creates more of mood! Can't wait for you to get back to the Chicago / Wisconsin area again!

    Awesome pictures man, those gels will for surly add a new flare to your port. Deff the First and the Last are my favorite! Have you ever considered using a cookie with the gels? So when are you coming up to the Bay!?

    Awesome photos, those gels are awesome. How much did they cost you ?
    This one little change has really stepped up your photos, before you had really beautiful pics of costumes in front of backgrounds now its like one fluid scene.

    Jesse, I told Art lastnight- that first one is hands down the best stormtrooper costume pic I have seen. That pic right there should make everyone want to have a suit. You are exactly what a stormtrooper should look like. Outstanding work by both of you!
