Truck Flashers

Truck Flashers

Yesterday, the wireless flash trigger for my new Vivitar 285HV came in. And even though I only had half a thumb left, I was excited to take advantage of my two flash setup (as can also be seen in yesterday’s pic o’ the day).

I setup two flashes for this shot; one about 3 feet from the truck window, and the other inside the cab with me. It took several tries to get this the way I wanted it to look because I kept having to get out of the truck after each shot to see what adjustments needed to be made.

I finally got a shot I was pleased with and tried a few new-learnt adjustments to it in Photoshop.

I was also sure to include the mega-bandaged thumb in the shot as a result of yesterday’s charade.



How the hell did you do that? I mean, I know you just pretty much described it for us. But that looks amazing. It looks like something out of Sin City or 300 with the lighting and colouring. Amazing.


I was about to post something akin to what ole Tiny G posted, but we are all working together to keep your ego in check, so…

this pic sucks ass dude.


Haha, thanks for the comments, guys (and girl).

And don’t worry about my ego. After taking daily pics all year, I realize that we’re halfway through October before more than one person comments positively on a pic.


I’m guessing Unsharp Mask and playing with the levels in PS… in addition to the sweet lighting set up, of course. 🙂
