For Halloween eve R&K Events was invited to shoot the Trail of Terror hosted by Autocraft Express. I’ve never been through a haunted house or trail before, & I can say that we were both pretty much freaked out the whole night. Rochelle & I had a fun time meeting the cast and shooting the various scenes. There was even firedancers at the entrance, so shooting them was pretty sweet too. For this setup i shot the whole night manual, pretty much for every scene it was pitch black. which made it all the more interesting. So we used a flashlight to help our focus lock, and used pocketwizards tt5’s to our 430ex2’s & 580ex2. our flashguns were either gridded using saxonpc grids or in a mini photoflex softbox to help diffuse the light to add to the dark mood of the night. Every scene was pretty challenging, between shooting between the groups, shooting in pitch black, & guestimating proper exposures. i really love challenges like this, i HAD A BLAST!
I Upgraded my pw tt5/tt1 to the new beta upgrade to see how some new interesting features would work out. one of them being this preflash boost for more reliable ttl. im liking the results. we shot this midday w/some glaring sun as a sidelight. and some pretty crazy shutter speeds. 640th/1000th & f2.8 iso 200. ronin was having a blast!
