Should I Fly on Friday the 13th?

Hello fellow YPS readers!

I’m still in beautiful Miami just finishing up the Spa book photo shoot. I tell ya, I had a blast even though it was hard work. I’m flying back to Montreal tomorrow, Friday the 13th! I’m not a superstitious guy or else I would’ve picked another day but it makes me smile to see people around me think I’m some crazy “fate” dare devil. I also have a black cat and I do walk under ladders without really thinking about it. I have broken several mirrors and I consider myself a very lucky guy. 🙂

Actually, I’m just rambling on.

Over the course of 2 weeks, I shot 761 photos for the Spa book which roughly 420 to actually go into the book (yes, it’s a big book). Here in Miami we mostly shot in Steve’s (the author) backyard so controlling the light brought some interesting challenges. Stay tuned on Monday for a detailed lighting tutorial on an outdoor product shot I did for the book.

In the mean time, not to leave you empty-handed, here’s a fun tutorial from DPS on creating duotone images from a color photo.

See you on Monday back in the cold Canadian winter.

** The intro photo is me during the shoot in Cancun… ahhhhh… I miss it already!**
