Melissa Boniface of the Alberta Ballet soars over the weekend in Calgary. She is leaping into the venerable, go to, 74″ Octa with a Ranger head in it. The Octa, I tell ya, I agree with Zack Arias. You put up one of these puppies, you don’t gotta know nothin’ about nothin’. Whenever I have been totally bereft of ideas, which is frequently, and I’m on a location, the Octa’s like a big ass life preserver in a turbulent sea. Put it up, everything looks nice. It lights the subject, answers your cell phone, and cooks your breakfast. Done deal. Very nice light.
Melissa and her very accomplished fellow dancer Anthony Pina joined us over the weekend. Wonderful dancers. Mel’s so talented she made me look good with this leap. Only shot 3 frames, and was lucky to be in sync with her for this one. Having a great time in Canada, meeting terrific folks and good shooters……more tk…..
