Toga! Toga! Toga!

It’s been a while since my last post… crazy time of year for everyone, especially in retail – you think I would be used to it after all these years but no, it still gets me every time.

Speaking of crazy times, I had my 37th birthday a few weeks back. The plan evolved from a quiet get together with family into an all out Toga party with lots of friends. After a few beers I decided to set up an impromptu photo booth in my back yard just for a bit of fun using some studio lighting – I figured with everyone having put in such a good effort with their outfits it was only fitting that we should make some good images. We all had great fun and it kicked the party along really well, as well as letting me get my photography fix for the evening…

The setup consisted of 2 back/rim lights plus one main light through a large softbox up front. The backdrop was just some small trees that looked sort of ‘Romanish’. I’m sure my neighbours must have been wondering what the hell was going on with three studio strobes firing off in the back yard throughout the night, along with all the usual mayhem that comes with a great party.

Thank you to all my friends for a great night and for putting up with my photographic antics. Here are a few samples…
