Carole & Andy

10-years ago, Carole & Andy got hitched in the Tunnel of Love Drive-Thru at the Little Vegas Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Proof:wpid-carol_andy_1-2009-09-30-19-22.jpg

We met up in the anti-Las Vegas, Branson, Missouri, while at a Chrysler 300 car meet last week. Here is their restored Chrysler 300 G:wpid-carol_andy_2-2009-09-30-19-22.jpg wpid-carol_andy_3-2009-09-30-19-22.jpg

Geek Alert: The above two images were created using a single flash, multiple exposure technique. The result: a surreal look, complete with conflicting shadows, textures, and mood. I think it sets the stage of a different way to seeing subject, place, and light, all important in my work.These were shot with an Alien Bees B1600 studio flash (full-power) using a Vagabond II as my portable power pack, the Creative Light five-foot octagonal softbox (octabank), triggered by a pair of Pocketwizards.  Nikon D-700, 70mm, 1/250 sec @ f/16, ISO 100. The camera was mounted on a tripod to save time in the photoshop compositing alignment process later and Josh Mishler served as my assistant (top) and Alec Vanderboom served as my assistant (bottom image). Josh and Alec did a great job helping me out! Back to normal programming.

They like the Dukes of Hazzard. Ode to Shefiff Roscooooe P. Coltrane:

    The photos look amazing! You are a real magician making us look so glamorous, especially since it was rather spur of the moment and we didn’t do much to prepare. You really made it fun, too! Thanks so much.
