Spitze & Co - Day 69

Corporate portraits are a special area within portrait photography. The person has to look honest and professional - relaxed and trust worthy - in their work environment. My job today was to shoot two new employees joining the fast growing "Customer Engagement" company - Spitze & Co

I chose to work with Speedlights only - one SB-700 and one SB-900. I will post the light diagram and the final portrait another day.

I also used the time to "snap shot" photograph the two owners - Martine and Jimmi - that you see here. You be the judge whether I have obtained my "corporate portrait" ambitions. I'm far from finished editing and cropping those files, so this only represent my first try. I used one on camera SB-900 with diffuser and indirect flash light for those shots.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
