Jade and The Major

May 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

One of the funnest portrait sessions I've ever done. Jade invited me to take photos of her soon-to-be retired hubby, whom will simply call The Major. Why? It's cooler that's why, and it's MY bloggy-blog so I'll use whatever moniker I like. The Major served 20 years in the United States Air Force serving much of his time on the JSTARS platform. The JSTARS is a Northrop Grumman E-8 Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System is a United States Air Force Airborne ground surveillance, battle management and command and control aircraft. It's a common sight to see JSTARS in the skies of Warner Robins, Georgia. 

Anyways,. . . The Major got permission to get a photo session on the flight line at Robins Air Force Base, and we settled on a time around sunset - or Golden Hour, as we shooters call it. It was a helluva good time and a great session with some awesome new friends. 

This photoshoot had it all; fun clients, great weather, golden hour sunsets, Air Force planes!!! AWESOME!!!!!!

For other shooters wondering, . . .I employed my 2 Nikons as usual. I used my Tamrom 70-200 F2.8 for great closeups and great bokeh, and my Tamron 17-50 F2.8 for wide angle shots. I used 2 Nikon SB700 flash units which were remote triggered via Pocketwizards. I was going to use an umbrella to soften the light a bit, but it was a very windy night, so I went with bare flash units. 

To Quote Jade, . . . 
"David Collins Photography's use of light is stunning. He took an idea I had and made it come to life with ease and confidence. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We look forward to using David in the future for a variety of projects."
