wow, beautiful stuff. DJs photos and Brett's video.
this is also exactly why a canon pro body is on my wish list for next camera, weather sealing!

Justin Marantz said...

Tim Halberg said...

Dude... what I love here is that you're by no means becoming a stagnant photographer, you keep pushing yourself, coming up with cooler and cooler images. You freaking rock the house man!!

Mary Bess said...

OMG! This is AMAZING! I can't even tell you how blown away we are! Thank you both sooo much. I can't believe you guys stayed up all night doing this...you are total rock stars! We love you guys!

Melissa said...

WOW DJ, you are amazing! Incredibly beautiful shots!

I also now know that I can shoot my Canon in the rain...although I don't think Canon would advise it :)

Saw the "pocket wizard." Did you just have your flash off camera somewhere?

Stacy Cross said...

Those pictures rock! :) You've inspired me to do something fun like that!

Shannon said...

unbelievable shots with the car lights! LOVE THEM!

Yea - the Canon stuff has held up great in the rain so I don't worry about it much...a great tip is to bring along a shower cap to put over your camera.

Amazing Work DJ!!!! Good to see you're still pushing the boundaries. My kinda man! That box was only meant to be played outside of, and I see that you're constantly outdoing yourself, which is rad. Can we hang sometime soon??? .justin.

Daphne said...

Hi David-

Inspiring to see you break the limits with backlighting, rain, spontaneity, all while not worrying about your camera? So cool to post immediately.
Great Job!
Love it....Daphne Hougard

Bradley Jensen said...

wow! how in the heck is your flash/strobe still working after that??? Awesome DJ :)

Amy DeYoung said...

Those are GORGEOUS! Love the car headlights/umbrella/rain shots!! Thanks for sharing :)

mail said...

can you tell us about your settings? How are you setting your flash, what iso you are using...

jeffdietzphotography said...

WOw, I am going to watch this a couple of more times. Definitely inspiring, and now I want to go out shooting at night haha.
I have a question...I see you are using studio lights there at one point. Anyway of posting a diagram of how you had that setup? or email a description or something? I think everyone would find that so awesome and useful. I know I am dying to know.
Thanks again for sharing the awesome shoot!
P.S. how did the equipment hold up in the rain, any issues?

Dang, DJ--really inspiring session. I'm dying to know your EXIF for that shoot--or I was until I saw all the rain and forgot it was ALSO at night :)

admin said...

Marianne Lozano said...
