365 Project : Day 024

This is what I take every morning, Triple Omega 3-6-9.  As they say, health is wealth! How I took this shot: I put the fish oil capsules in a small tupperware to diffuse the light coming out of the speedlite 580exii placed on the top. Gear: Canon 7D + EF 100mm f2.8 Macro lens Settings: f13 | 1/250 , 580exii @ 1/64 power Strobist Info: Bare 580exii with the built in diffuser @ 1/64 power on top Trigger: Built-in wireless […]

365 Project : Day 022

I confess, this was a last minute shot.  It’s weekend here and this idea just came out of no where.   So, I got my speedlite 580exii and attached the Lumiquest softbox III, slid the wireless phottix transceiver on to the flash and popped my trusty lumix LX3 together with the phottix transmitter.  Went straight to the sink and with an improvised background and there you go! Day 22! Here’s the rest of the technical yada yada.. Gear: Lumix LX3 + […]

365 Project : Day 021

After more than a week of waiting from ebay… it finally came!  Spyder3 Pro Display Calibrator.  The concept behind this is that, I want to give a colorful background since it is after all a color calibrator, but then I wanted to have the white balance correct by making the fonts white, simply because they are in fact white. And if you are wondering where I took this shot, well, it’s inside our washing machine! Really, I’m not kidding!  Now […]

365 Project : Day 018

This is one of the most useful things in my workflow.  It was a gift from my birthday last year… oh man, that’s almost a year now… Grrr! Anyway, moving on… Here is how I took it: Gear: Canon 7D + 50mm 1.8 + 430exii + 580exii Settings: f7.1 | 1/160 | ISO 250 Strobist info: 580exii + umbrella on the left @24mm, 1/32 power 430exii + red gel @105, 1/64 power Triggered by built in Flash Transmitter of Canon […]

365 Project : Day 017

Inspiration… This is the reason why I purchased this book. Joe McNally is one of the photographers I really look up to.  He’s done it all… in other words, he’s the man! Ok, I guess I have some reading to do over the weekend 🙂 How I took it: Gear: Canon 7D + 50mm 1.8 + 580exii + 430exii Settings: f8.0 | 1/250 | ISO 400 Strobist info: 580exii + umbrella on top left 430exii + red gell zoomed at […]

365 Project : Day 009

365 Project : Day 008

This has been my best friend lately… My daily companion for my 365 Project!  My Lumix LX3 together with its friends, Sandisk Ultra II 8GB SD Card and Gorillapod 🙂 I decided to do some product shoot today and since I have been shooting lately with my point and shoot camera for my 365 Project, I decided to give it some sort of a tribute.  Anyway, some “strobist” practice won’t be bad!  I would love to do more product shoots […]
