Brittany + Mike

I had at the opportunity to shoot the events leading up to and after Brittany and Mikes big day.  They ended up getting married in a private ceremony on another continent. However I was there to shoot their Engagements, Bridals, and a Reception held in their honor.  Brittany and Mike are a fun couple and were open to my suggestions and locations as I created images that match their lifestyle, personality, and tastes.

What the Hell is TTL?

This weeks episode on FRAMED Equip Tips is all about Flash and using proprietary triggering systems to fire your speedlights such as Nikon CLS.  We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of TTL modes versus Manual modes.  And for a special treat, we discuss the newer Pocketwizard TT1 and TT5 Flexes and their ability to cheat sync speed.
Basically, we get high speed sync in TTL mode with all the advantages of radio triggering.  Join special guest, Scott Jarvie and myself in this informal conversation jam packed with information.

Our second video is a fun blooper reel of last week's episode with Ryan Muirhead.

Other news is that we've nearly completed post production of Zombie Prom-- The Movie in which I was the Director of Photography, Camera Operator, and Colorist.  The short film was created in efforts to promote Strankenstein's Zombie Prom, an annual community event held in Ogden, Utah where all proceeds go to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  The film will premiere soon to a local theater (to be announced), the web, and film festivals across the country and potentially, world.

Another episode of The Basement as well as more Behind the Scenes Shoots coming soon...
