A few days ago we headed out to the dry lake bed to do a demo shoot and a video interview for photographymentor.com.  Curt, Robert and Solomon were up for a brisk and windy Vegas day. 

I was practicing my “Single Flash Multiple Frame” – aka: SFMF technique – aka: “my daylight version of painting with light” that the guys shot on their Canon 5D Mark II’s.  The full tutorial will eventually make it to photographymentor.com – we promise to post when it’s available. For now, their short teaser…

A *warm* thank you to Rachel for standing in as our gorgeous model and freezing her ass of in the process.

    We had a great time shooting with you John…. and I think we’re going to have to put a disclaimer before the Interview clips, just in case anyone gets motion sickness while watching them 🙂

    I’m a Nikon man myself, but that video and these pictures almost make me want to cheat and have a 5d mII on the side! Great work.

    WHOA!!!! WAY Cool! The last picture is super-fantastic! I was a bit confused…was that teaser video done with the 5dmarkII? If so, I’m even MORE impressed (didn’t think that was possible). 🙂
