Dog Portrait and Lighting Diagram : Elinchrom DRX One

Here is a quick portrait I shot of our dog Oscar last week.  I shot this while testing out one of Elinchrom’s new DRX One strobes.  If you aren’t familiar with this light, it is a new 100ws compact monolight from Elinchrom.  It has about twice the power of say a Canon or Nikon Speedlite.  The great thing about it that it is smaller, lighter, and much more compact that the other Elinchrom monolights I own.  Its easy to travel with without taking up a lot of space in cases.  The 100ws worth of power put out by this light is plenty for an indoor portrait for example.  It also can also be powered down low enough level to let you shoot at much faster apertures with strobe lighting.  So far its been a great addition to my lighting gear.  Oh and the best part is it only costs about $225.00.

Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers NFL NFC Wildcard Football Photos

Here are my favorite shots from the NFC Wildcard game between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers a couple weeks back.  The 49ers ended up beating the Packers with a field goal in the last seconds of the game.  It was another fun season of covering the Packers, I can’t wait for the next.  Thanks for following along.

Green Bay Packers vs Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Football Photos

It’s again an exciting time for Packers fans here in Green Bay.  The team has finally gotten back two of their star players back after about 6 weeks with out them.  Last weekend the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to determine who would be the NFC North champs and earn a spot in the playoffs.  And for me that means covering another home playoff game at Lambeau Field.  I’m not sure if the 49ers are ready for the frigid temps we are supposed to have this Sunday, but I know it won’t slow the Packers down while they try to make their way to another Super Bowl.

Here are my favorite shots from the last two home games against the Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers.  Enjoy.
