Chip off the old block

I had an absolute blast shooting photos for a "project" at work with Chip (pictured), the most like-minded photography nerd friend I have there.

An opportunity arose at work to set up and shoot headshots of several colleagues over the course of a 2-day period. While thinking about the technicals and working through the problems which inevitably arise in a situation like that is fun (for me at least), doing so alongside someone else who thinks like you do and geeks out about the same things takes fun to a-whole-nother level!

Thanks Chip, not only for the tag-team photography fun we had, but for the many years of enjoyment and learning from each other. And best of luck with your new career opportunity!

Strobist info: The key light is an LP-180 with a 1/4 CTO warming gel in a Photek Softlighter II with diffusion in-place to camera right, zoomed to 35mm, and fired at 1/4 power. The fill is coming from an LP-180 in a shoot through umbrella just behind the camera, fired at 1/32 power. The rim (back) light is an SB-800 with a full CTO warming gel in a Lumiquest SB-II to back camera left, fired at 1/32 power.
