Kaleidoscope of Presets

As you can see their are many possibilities when you have 176 presets to choose from.

Photo info: Shot in the shade with a Canon 20D and a 24-70 f2.8L Canon lens. I had to stand on a chair to achieve this angle. Shot at 1/100, f4.5, ISO 100.

A quick portrait before heading off to a birthday party.  I really like what the BW Natural preset has done here.

Bridal

Bridal: This was shot mid day with harsh light. I used a silver reflector for fill. I actually like the original very much, but it's always nice to have options. The large aperture and long length of my lens added a nice bokeh to this portrait.

Photo info: 1/2500 sec, f2.8, ISO 100, 150mm (70-200mm)
Preset: A-Game WB 1

Natures Way of Bouncing Light

I purchased a new photo toy from B&H. It's an arm that holds my round reflector in place. Up until now I have had an assistant bouncing light for me. That's not always practical and it's nice to be able to do a shoot solo every now and then. I brought my new purchase over to my brothers to show it off. It was an overcast day. Needless to say my reflector was not necessary. Not necessary because my brothers back lawn was covered in snow. Check out this excellent fill light.

Photo Info: 1/160 at f/2.8, ISO 200, 150mm

The Wonderland presets are an awesome lot - I cycle through them (and the PH ones too of course) - almost every day on at least one photo. Many on my blog have been posted using them as a starting point.
