04/02/2005: "I have been known to lie."

Rodger is going to be a daddy soon...

Rodger and Yolanda were at my studio for two full days while I photographed new products of theirs (girls will want to click that last little link). It was a lot of fun hanging out with them again. I wanted to get a picture of the very pregnant Yolanda, but we ran late so she's going to come back. I did shoot a few frames of Rodger and he wasn't feeling pretty so I agreed that I wouldn't see his face and that I was just shooting the necklaces he was wearing. Well, I lied. I did see his face, but showed him that it was a cool shot of him so agreed that I could post it. For a minute there you all thought I couldn't be trusted, huh?
camera/film: Canon 10D, 28-105mm @ 70mm
lighting: To the left is a Speedotron head with an 11" reflector and a 10 grid spot aimed at the chest. To the right, on the ground pointing up, is another Speedo head with a 20" reflector with a diffuser on it for fill. That's it!

All I know is Brooks is an arrogant blowhard with a penchant for buggery.

What no camera and lighting info? I mean it's digital but where's the details. I'm very spoiled by your lighting and camera descriptions.

Oops sorry. The info has been added above. Oh, and the background is a wall painted with flat black paint. I like it because it has a nice dark gray look when you put light right on it, but if you just move the subject a little bit away from it, it goes black.

That's very cool about the background. It looked gray AND black to me.
