All great shots Glenn! Agreed on the logos likely needing a release to use. The 3rd image on those strikes me with "what do I do now?" look to it if that makes sense. The first one is perfection. Keep rockin it

Last Chance
Photographers lined up at NAF El Centro as part of a multi-group photocall catch the last takeoff of the evening before climbing back on the buses.

How many of Y'all are thinking about the ISAP symposium in Seattle in mid-May? We're finalizing the program and will be posting the itinerary, including field trip schedules, in the very near future. I'm not beating the drum for it, just wondered how many of us will be attending so I have a handle on what else we might be able to pull off while we're there. These events are very challenging to plan, and this year's has been especially so, but we think you'll be entertained and educated, as well as just have a good time. No pressure, just

I was in Seattle last week for NWOC and stayed at the Hilton downtown which I advise not to stay at. Its old and needs a lot of work. The Sheraton Dowtown would be my choice if you all are staying downtown. Even the Red Lion on 5th looked better...

I just had this one framed up for NWCAS. First time I've really put myself out there like this but was thrilled to be asked.

Give that guy some tail-dragger time. It's easy to forget how to land when there's a wheel under the nose.

An addendum to Glenn's shoot, my comments were not meant to diminish his efforts in any way. I'm so proud of him, his incredible talent and his willingness to go out on a limb. Those kinds of assignments are exactly the ones that wake you up in the middle of the night and roll your stomach over. So many variables, and ways the whole deal can go south, even seasoned pros, if they are smart, plan, replay and replay every possible scenario. I have no doubt that Glenn will be orchestrating these and much bigger set ups in the future, but he's a sharp guy, so he'll always worry them into perfection.

Thanks so much for the comments and critique - please never hold back on account of hurting my feelings, you wont. Those are all very great points and its funny after reading them they seem sorta obvious. but trust me they never entered my mind! I'm terrible at directing models on what to do and how to pose - i find myself standing there waiting to shoot while they're standing there looking at me waiting for to tell them how to be.

But JW's post pretty much summed it up, and add to the fact it was a high noon under a shawdow'y awning with a lighting system i've never used made it pretty tricky. I want to get better at it so I can round out my offering, and everybody's c&c has really helped. thank you.

Setup shot:

better.

I'm on the fence here.

I'm just over the border in Langley, BC. Without border waits it's about 2 hours to Seattle. That's a lot of driving despite being somewhat close. I could fly there a whole lot quicker. Would be nice to avoid the hotel costs if possible but it might be unavoidable

Glenn Buddy, one of the things that can help you in those situations, is to have a person or two, preferably a female, looking over your shoulder. They pick up on things we miss, hand positions, a blowing lapel, a collar that isn't perfectly in position, Women have a wonderful sense for those details while we run around with our hair on fire just trying to light it, shoot it, and have it be over. Miss Nadya would be a tremendous asset when you have those types of assignments.....um, come to think of it, Miss Nadya is a tremendous asset no matter wht you might be doing! See if there's someone on the client's team who can provide an extra set of eyes for you, it's too much for one person to oversee. As your clients and budgets grow, you'll begin pulling in stylists to help you with that kind of stuff. The downside is, then you have additional people to manage, because any way you slice it, you are the ring master, and the end product, great or sorry, depends upon you. Ease into it, like you are. You will find yourself less and less hesitant to direct people. I know exactly where you're coming from, when I began, I missed a lot of stuff, I was so wound up that I just wanted to shoot something and have it be over, before it all came unravelled. Time and familiarity with your equipment, and those scenarios will gradually put you in control of most anything the client/weather can throw at you. You've seen me under pressure, I get very quiet and focused, partly because that looks better and inspires more confidence than looking terrified to those around you.

You got it, you're on the right track, roll on. And, um, they say it's a good idea not to break out new gear for the first time on a shoot. I personally have found that advice to be over rated, but then I find stark terror a real motivator.

That's the best shot of the whole set of this aircraft, Glenn. Beautiful.

I would suggest putting in a half-hour into carefully masking out the aircraft and then brightening it up a little to create better separation from the background and make it better-lit... but not too much, just a subtle difference like maybe a half-stop brighter. My personal bias.

+1! This one screams out for all the TLC you can lavish on it in post. It'll be worth it!
