    Hey fellow m43ers :) I just completed an exhausting blog detailing my experience last weekend shooting a few celebrities at the F a n bo y Expo event in Knoxville, Tennessee. I used my OMD, and go into my lighting setup for those who are interested in strobist kind of stuff.

    EDIT: Just click on the "Blog" link on my site to get to the entry, this site has censored the word "f a n b o y" which will prevent the direct link from working since that word is in the title of the blog. Thanks!

    Hi there, loved the blog entry and lighting run-through :)
    Unfortunately the link is broken as the forum's helpfully blanked out the word f a n b o y and replaced it with stars.

    Thank you, and thanks for the heads-up! Unfortunately there's no way around this site's censor system for that word, so I edited my post asking people to just go to my site and hit the Blog link. ;)

    Thanks for the adjustment, Nepherim! :2thumbs:
    Thank you, Masis!


    Some will, some won't.... in order:
    1. actor Josh Stewart, who appeared in The Dark Knight Rises, The Collector, The Walking Dead, as well as a host of other shows/movies.
    2. young actor Chandler Riggs, who has a decent role as "Carl" in The Walking Dead TV series
    3. Lee Majors (and wife), from the classic The Six Million Dollar Man show and The Fall Guy show
    4. WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jerry "The King" Lawler, still seen regularly on their shows.

    I was supposed to shoot a few others (including Elvira herself) but their schedules got changed.
    Thanks for looking!

    I only recognized Jerry The King Lawler :biggrin: The first thing I noted was the bright lights on both sides - but reading your post explained the why. No idea about strobes and such, but maybe turning it down might have helped -- unless that was the (sort of industrial) look you were going for.

    Either way, nice work! :wink:

    I actually ended up turning them down as much as I could by the end of the weekend; this is where I wished that the OMD went down do ISO 100 natively! I didn't realize how much light I had to fight when my aperture was 1.8-2.0.
    Thanks for your comment! :2thumbs:
