Holiday Cards

There's still plenty of time to schedule an appointment for photos for your Holiday cards.  The image below is from the Santa Paws photo shoot at Dog City Bakery in Marietta, Georgia on November 11 for the benefit of Atlanta Boxer Rescue. 20171111-_DSC1248Santa's little buddy. Prior to the event,  I was a bit concerned as it was to take place outside and the weather forecast was calling for 11 mph winds with gusts up to 20.  I also knew that dealing with the ever changing ambient light was going to be a challenge. 

I set up under the roof of the covered sidewalk in front of the store so the set wasn't completely exposed. I had added grommets to the sides of the backdrop the night before so I was able anchor it to the support stands to help keep it from flopping the the breeze.  A couple of 15 pound sandbags strategically placed kept the whole backdrop system from blowing over.

Power outlets were not handy so my Paul C. Buff Einstein 640 lights were powered by Buff's Vagabond Mini Lithium battery packs.  I was surprised how fast the lights recycled on battery power and though they were running very low by the end of the event,  the batteries lasted for well over 800 shots!

All in all, things went very smoothly and folks were very generous with their donations to help Atlanta Boxer Rescue with their mission for rescuing, vetting and finding loving homes the Boxer breed.
