Headshots for my bro

My brother is going to be playing Mark in RENT for Palo Alto Players and needed some headshots taken.

I brought my trusty 5D Mark II to his house and we just did some quick shots out in his backyard.

I was pretty pleased with the results.  All of the pics can be found on Flickr (the keepers at least).

Here are some thumbnails:

For this photo shoot, I used my collapsible gray card to get proper white balance.  Adobe Lightroom make it so easy to do color correction when you use the gray card.  Just use the eye-dropper to pick the right gray (from the card), and then copy the settings and paste them on all of the pictures in the group.

Here is the card:

Also, I can’t recommend Lightroom more!
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2

Here is the pair in action:

The best part of all is that you can do this for a BUNCH of images far faster and more accurately than any other way.
