The Raleigh skyline changes so much I try to shoot it afew time ayear. I went out the other night and shot some images. It seems the "magic" hour is @ 9PM when the sky looks black. I shot my images with a tungsten setting at f/4.5 for 20sec.'s with the NR filter on. There was enough daylight in the sky to turn it Blue.

For the past 2 1/2 years I've driven by the Wheelie King, I've always thought this would make some great images. I kept putting it off..... What do you say to the Wheelie King and it's not in the best part of town, Person and MLK Blvd. I was coming back from a shoot and had my gear with me and saw the Wheelie King and decided to stop. He is a great person and has the best attitude I've seen in along time check out his myspace http://www.myspace.com/nohandking.
I shot with 2 lights Alien Bee 800w with double diffusion and a 400w reflector from the side.

had a Cancellation today...... Had an old lock and key I've been meaning to shoot. I rigged it on armature wire with hot glue and did alittle retouching. Split 800 watts with a softbox (Really to big for this set-up) and a grid on the side. Had a hot light on the background with a warming gel. f/8 at 1/4 sec. I was to lazy to rig the fill mirrior so I just held it under the lock......
