the goods

Because I'm horrible at getting back to people, I thought I'd just write a post to answer some photo questions I've gotten.

I shoot with a Nikon D700.
The lens I usually have on it is my Nikkor 24-70 2.8G.
I also have a:
50 1.4G
85 1.4
70-200 2.8G

And for the studio set-up, I love the seamless paper rolls, and I get them at Tempe Camera.  My main light is a Profoto Compact 600 with a 5-ft. Octobox.  For fill I use another Profoto 600 at a lower power with a reflector umbrella.  Then I use 2 Elinchrom 400BX's with shoot-through umbrellas to shoot the background if I'm wanting high-key, like a white background.

So there ya go.

I still have so much to learn about studio lighting, and I'm always wishing I had more time to mess around with it to learn more. 

And about the cabin we rented in McCall, we found it on VRBO.com and it's listing # is 193172.  We loved it, just wished we were on the lake!

You have such amazing pictures. These studio ones are really nice, and I love how you capture the brightest pictures with such awesome colours without studio lighting.
