One From Austin ::

Just finished my 2nd day of teaching this week in Texas. Tonight I’m in Austin. We wrapped up at 2:30am. I’m beat but I wanted to share at least one from the OneLight… even though this one is TwoLights. :)

Cheers, Zack

    Gorgeous – great light, great moment

  • Nev said on October 16, 2009

    Thats a great shot.
    The second light up in the left corner or is that a street lamp? Curious where you threw your 2nd light here. :)

  • Marcelo said on October 16, 2009

    wow !!!!!
    What a shot buddy !!! simple, powerful, beautiful !!!

  • Martin said on October 16, 2009

    That’s an awesome shot. Full of character and detail and very memorable. Congrats on getting through the first few months with the baby. Tough going but worth it. Cheers, Martin

  • Jase said on October 16, 2009

    that is a sweet shot Zack!
    just lovin the whole set and the expression too

  • Ian Mitchell said on October 16, 2009

    Sweet shot! Grittty!

  • Bryan Lathrop said on October 16, 2009

    man, zack, that is a gorgeous shot. I gotta get to one of your workshops next year. Keep your eyes peeled for the big bald guy from Philly.

  • Phil said on October 16, 2009

    Thats nice, you hid the kickstand well in the rear tire.

  • I am B. said on October 16, 2009

    Zack,

    I’m in total agreement with Phil here in that if you made it up to Baltimore sometime that would be quite awesome.

    B.

    P.S. – HINT HINT :)

  • Charles Verghese said on October 16, 2009

    Heya Zack,

    Love the shot & the mood it has..but I think the cars in the background…I would loose them…imho!

  • Otto Rascon said on October 16, 2009

    Dang, that is a sweet image. I love the quality of light and his skin tone. This is an overall pimpin’ shot. Thanks. Oh, and will you ever be coming to Chicago? Peace.

  • Ryan Gibson said on October 16, 2009

    Awesome shot!! I have to agree with Charles though, the car on the left is a bit distracting. Still awesome though!!

  • zack said on October 16, 2009

    @Nev – The 2nd light is that light up in the top corner. A flash with a Honl Photo 1/8 grid.

    @Charles – I know! I was complaining about that as I shot it but I couldn’t get them towed away fast enough. :)

    Cheers,
    Zack

  • Eric E said on October 16, 2009

    Trying out some ideas for next year’s TwoLight Workshop? Sweet!

  • Steven Erat said on October 16, 2009

    I think the top corner light really adds to the composition,as does the building on the right which anchors the vertical nature of the image.

  • Kim S said on October 16, 2009

    Nice shot Zack. Im bitter I didnt make the LA workshop after we all got to hang out with you at the meet-N-greet. Next time!

  • walephotos said on October 16, 2009

    nice. can’t wait to see more.

    +1 for coming to baltimore (though i live in DC…but i’ll take what i can get).

    Don’t they know who you are!

  • Glyn Dewis said on October 16, 2009

    Another great Zack; keep ‘em coming.

    Cheers,
    Glyn

  • Julia said on October 16, 2009

    Nice shot! Thanks for visiting our cool town, Zack. We were so happy to have you!

  • Clay said on October 16, 2009

    Nice, simple yet very insirational.

  • Zac said on October 16, 2009

    Hope you enjoyed Austin and were able to get out and enjoy some of the local flavor and great live music!

  • Gina said on October 16, 2009

    Oh my gosh, Zack. When I left the studio at 2:30am last night/morning after an intense workshop from you, I tiredly went up to my hotel room. As said my prayers, and want to be honest, I thanked God for allowing me to meet and learn from you. You have changed my every thought of a single light. I am getting ready to download my images and will post… my motorcycle shot in color :)
    You are the best! Stay tuned for the vacuum cleaner shots to come :)

  • Sissel said on October 16, 2009

    I love Austin! Have a place out there. I agree with Zac above….Austin is to be enjoyed and there is so much to experience there. Hope you were able to get out and enjoy it. Great shot!

  • zack said on October 17, 2009

    @Gina – I can’t wait to see them!

    Cheers,
    Zack

  • Catalina said on October 17, 2009

    beautiful, Zack!
    hope to see you in NYC!

  • James A said on October 17, 2009

    I love high contrast black and white photos! The angle of the pose works perfectly with the angle of the bike. Awesome shot!!!

  • imthiaz houseman said on October 18, 2009

    wow…can’t wait to see more!

  • Tyler Nutter said on October 18, 2009

    It was great learning from you Zack, and I’m glad you got a chance to take advantage of my motorcycle. I cant wait until next time!

  • Tyler Nutter said on October 18, 2009

  • GLENSCOLAN said on October 19, 2009

    wondeful, veru great job

  • Steve White said on October 19, 2009

    Love it! Can’t wait to see you in Denver some day :)

  • Fatih said on October 19, 2009

    Hi Zack,

    How do you sync your flash in night shots where your shutter speed is slow due to ambient exposure? Is it rear or front sync?
    I could not find a way to rear-sync my camera and off camera flash in manual mode triggered via PW’s..

  • Kim Nielsen said on October 19, 2009

    I have officially gone from flash stupid to flash informed. I have so been enlightened! I went to a concert on Friday night, and was a total nerd half the time thinking “how would I light this situation?” I’m a changed woman!

  • david said on October 20, 2009

    I am disgusted that you would take advantage of a motorcycle. What have you become

  • scotty wade said on October 20, 2009

    Man oh man… love this shot! After drooling over it for a few minutes I found myself wondering what it would look like with the headlight turned on (on the motorcycle)

    P.S. I’ve got Daniel Johnston’s “speedy motorcycle” song stuck in my head now, ha!

  • guphotography said on October 22, 2009

    Hi Zack,

    The light on the top left corner, was that a flash light or street light?

    Many thanks

  • PierLuc said on October 22, 2009

    Awesome capture! I love it! Did you think about giving courses in Canada one day :D ?

  • Lewosky said on October 24, 2009

    Love the lighting. also like the motorbike.

    Well done indeed!

    Cheers.

  • andy said on October 30, 2009

    Zack,
    Thanks for rocking Austin and the studio. We hope you will come back soon. We had a BLAST.

  • Phillip Solomon said on October 30, 2009

    Zack, It was great working with you and all who attended the workshop, I had a great time being your Subject,
    I still cant believe its me in the photos..

    you are Amazzzing.
    Looking forward to working with you in Atlanta

  • Nicola Wilson said on December 2, 2009

    That’s it!! I’m finishing that teleporter machine i’ve been working on… just for the soul purpose that I can teleport myself to Atlanta!
