From the ExpoImaging YouTube Channel:
Jeff Rojas demonstrates how to easily create a dramatic, hard-lit portrait with 2 flashes and a few Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grids. Flash photography lighting video tutorial, techniques and tips.
B&H carries the ExpoImaging Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grids. For a slightly less versatile (but less expensive) option, you might consider getting the Opteka OSG18 1/8" or the OSG14 1/4" Universal Honeycome Grids and a Honl Speed Strap.
Update: After creating this post and getting it ready to publish to the site, I decided to try and recreate the results with the gear I had at home (I don't own the 3-in-1 grid, but I do have the Opteka grids linked above). Here was the shot I came up with:
Sean Self Portrait with Grids

As you can see, it isn't an exact replica, but it's close. The grid on my face was not perfectly centered on my face (and was a little brighter), but I liked the result. Below you can see the setup.

Trying to replicate images you find intriguing is a good way to gain experience. Ultimately, you learn a lot from the process and the lessons learned can help you work more efficiently when executing your own creative ideas.
By the way, this is your first glimpse at my new studio space. You'll likely be seeing more of it in the future.

Lowepro Whistler and Photo Sport II AW Backpacks
From Lowepro:
Two Distinctive Designs Offer Nod to Lowepro Brand’s Outdoor Heritage
SALT LAKE CITY and PETALUMA, Calif., Aug. 5, 2015 - Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today expanded its trusted offerings for outdoor photographers with the launch of Whistler, a four-season and alpine-inspired backpack series, and the next generation of its best-selling and active-adventure backpack, Photo Sport II.
“Both of these inventive, technical designs evoke memories of founder Greg Lowe and the origins of the company that he built,” said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. “From the adventurer who works in extremes, to the athlete who likes to go fast and light, we’ve created these bags to help outdoor photographers take and protect their gear to the ends of the earth.”
Born on the side of a mountain, the Whistler series was designed and tested by professional photographers, including Whistler shooter Paul Morrison, in the extreme conditions of the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.
“I’ve worked with Lowepro bags since I began shooting skiing over 35 years ago, and it was a Lowepro bag that helped my camera gear survive a large avalanche in 1997,” said Paul Morrison, professional photographer and Loweprofessional. “Cameras mean different things to different photographers, but I think most agree that there is an attachment to cameras that can run quite deep. Bags are the protective connections between our gear and us. That was the thinking that brought about Whistler.”
Whistler is a versatile, four-season technical backpack that comes in two sizes - 350 AW and 450 AW. Ideal for wilderness photographers and adventurers who carry an equal measure of camera, video and functional outdoor equipment, the bag’s hinged and zippered back panel offers partial or full access to photography gear, and its rigid internal structure can support attachment of skis, poles, tripods, ice axes and more. Featuring Lowepro’s ActivZone System harness and MaxFit divider system, the bag is comfortable to wear and flexible to pack. Whistler’s extra-protective build keeps gear safe from the elements, including a waterproof fabric and base, detachable All Weather AW Cover and removable camera gear insert.
Addressing the demands of two passions in one pack, the updated Photo Sport II series offers camera and personal gear portability when engaged in aerobic sports or activities. The Photo Sport BP 200 AW II and 300 AW II both include a new UltraCinch design, featuring side access and a custom pull-tab to tighten and stabilize the bag’s photo gear space in one swift action. Lightweight, weather-resistant materials and a built-in All Weather AW Cover keep photographers moving when the weather changes. An ActivZone harness system, padded waistbelt and adjustable shoulder straps offer padding in all the right spots, while the bag’s dedicated compartment for a 2-liter water reservoir (not included) helps photographers stay hydrated while running, hiking, biking, climbing, boarding or trekking.
The Whistler BP 350 AW ($349.95) and 450 AW ($389.95) and the Photo Sport BP 200 AW II ($169.95) and 300 AW II ($199.95) are now available for purchase at authorized retail locations.
B&H has the Whistler BP 350AW / 450AW and Photo Sport BP 200 AW II / 300 AW II available for preorder.

Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Lens
From Tamron:
August 6, 2015, Saitama City, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, today announces the introduction of a new high-performance lens that zooms from 18 to 200mm for APS-C DSLR cameras.
The new 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC (Model B018) is the successor to AF 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF] MACRO (Model A14), which has been one of Tamron's best-selling lenses since its introduction 10 years ago. The new 18-200mm VC uses the most modern optical and mechanical design to achieve compactness and high performance. Incorporating image stabilization, the 18-200mm VC delivers superior image quality and is the lightest zoom in its class. Tamron made full use of its long experience and expertise as a pioneering force in high-power zoom lenses to create an optimal all-in-one lens that opens up new photographic possibilities to all DSLR camera users.
Product Highlights
  1. No need to change lenses—shoot in a wide variety of settings, from true wideangle to telephoto, with a single lens
    A zoom range of 18 to 200mm (35mm equivalent: 28-310mm) means there is no need to change lenses even when switching from wideangle shots in tight places to long telephoto shots of distant objects. Ideal for everything from large groups photos, family pictures, portraits, scenery, animals and school events—even for close-up shots (less than 0.5m / 19.7 in.) of food.
  2. Greater portability at a weight of just 400g (14.1 oz.)—the lightest lens in its class
    Covers the focal length range of 18 to 200mm and features Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation), but weighs a mere 400g (14.1 oz.). Tamron designed the 18-200mm VC to be as user-friendly as possible by emphasizing portability and convenience. Users will appreciate the incredible balance and comfortable feel of this lens—even when used with the newest APS-C DSLR cameras.
  3. Features VC and AF, providing valuable support for DSLR camera novices
    Camera vibration is magnified in telephoto shots and when a slow shutter speed is used because of dim lighting. Even beginners can take great photos at long distances, at night, and indoors—and avoid camera shake—thanks to Tamron's acclaimed VC mechanism. By incorporating a newly designed autofocus drive module with optimal DC motor-gear train integration, the 18-200mm VC also focuses much more quickly and quietly than models with conventional DC motors.
  4. Delivers enhanced imaging performance in a lightweight package
    Featuring 16 elements in 14 groups, the 18-200mm VC uses an LD (Low Dispersion) lens element to minimize chromatic aberrations. Although light and compact with VC, Tamron's new offering also delivers amazing overall optical performance for an all-purpose lens. A circular, seven-blade aperture diaphragm maintains an almost perfectly round shape even at two stops down from its maximum aperture, providing desirable and beautiful bokeh with point light sources blurring into naturally rounded shapes.
  5. Works great as an easy-to-use lens for day-to-day use
    For added dependability and longer life, Tamron's new lens features moisture-resistant construction that helps prevent damage caused by accidental exposure to wetness. The lens also comes with a Zoom Lock feature to prevent unwanted barrel extension when users carry their lens and camera body combinations with the lens pointed toward the ground.

Summer Photography Tips: Lightning
Let me first say that photographers (myself included) tend to overlook safety too frequently when attempting to capture the perfect shots. Lightning is extremely dangerous and strong caution is advised when attempting to photograph it. That said: Summer is the season for lightning.
A couple of days ago, my wife came in from walking the dog at nearly midnight and said that I had to go out and see the lightning in the distance. A quick check of the weather radar showed that a strong thunderstorm was going to graze us and even though my body said "No! It's time for bed!", my brain knew that this was a great opportunity and that the potential photos, if realized, would last far longer than my tiredness.
I quickly assessed the focal length needs and mounted a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens on a Canon EOS 5Ds R. Lightning strikes tend to be random in location and, with the extreme resolution of the 5Ds R, I could afford to shoot with a wider focal length and crop into the frame for the shorter and more-distant lightning bolts. Lightning bolts also vary greatly in brightness and the f/2.8 lens gave me plenty of latitude for exposure settings.
I grabbed a tripod, remote release and a tiny flashlight. I went out the door and spent the next hour capturing lightning strikes.
Note that rain protection for both you and the gear is a very good idea as rain typically accompanies thunderstorms. In this case, my shirt became the gear protection and I simply got wet.
When it is very dark out, lightning photography is not too difficult. Frame the scene in the direction of the storm (consider incorporating some foreground) with a level camera. Turn off image stabilization (if available) and switch to manual focus. Establishing accurate manual focus in the dark can be challenging, but a street light, a light on a distant tower or even a star (if visible) can work.
Attach the remote switch (needs to be able to lock the shutter open) to the camera and set the camera's mode to "B" (Bulb). The shutter speed will be established by the duration of the remote release press. With the dark sky contributing very little light to the exposure, the image brightness will be determined by the lightning and its illumination of the clouds in combination with the selected ISO and aperture settings. Lightning bolts are very bright, but because of the varying distance and intensity of the light output, some trial and error may be necessary to dial in the most-optimal settings. I'll throw out a starter setting of f/4 and ISO 400.
You may decide that turning off the camera's long exposure noise reduction is advisable as dark frame capture is time consuming.
Once the camera is setup, open the shutter using the remote release and wait for lightning to strike. After a strike, release the shutter and immediately open it again.
Bryan's Law of Lightning Photography: The best lightning bolts are guaranteed to occur in the brief period of time that the shutter is closed between exposures.
You may find that you want to start a new photo after a period of inactivity to reduce long exposure noise in the images. Leaving the shutter open for multiple strikes is an option, though a risk is that parts of the image, generally clouds near an area of recurring lightning activity, become overexposed. You may find it more optimal to combine specific images later during post processing.
I captured more lightning strikes in this 1 hour storm than I have in any storm I previously photographed. The results were definitely worth an hour of lost sleep. This image, my favorite of the take, is a single exposure practically straight out of the camera (slight cropping and Picture Style change).
While the nighttime lightning photography technique is relatively easy, daytime lightning photography is much more challenging. Daylight lightning photography procedures are not dissimilar from normal daylight photography, but the problem is that relatively short exposures are required to achieve proper image brightness and short exposures are hard to time with a lightning strike. To catch a bolt of lightning in daylight requires FAST reflexes (or better, a lightning trigger) and a camera with a short shutter lag.
Give lightning photography a try – the results will be ... "striking."

The Canon EOS 5Ds R and EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Lens Capture Sunrise at the Portland Lighthouse
While it is painful to get up early enough to photograph the sunrise in early summer (4:20 AM in this case), early summer is the right time of the year to photograph the Portland Lighthouse and the distant Ram Island Lighthouse from this angle with the sun in the frame.
With the middle daughter accompanying me, I arrived at Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth, ME just before sunrise. I selected one specific composition to concentrate on during the prime shooting minutes, timed the rotating lighthouse light, bracketed exposures and, when capturing the foreground rocks being hit with the first light rays of the day, adjusted focus to a closer distance.
This image is composed primarily of three source images run through a complicated manual HDR process with manual focus-stacking. After the big effort made to capture this image (a long drive in addition to the early alarm), I was anxious to see how this photo turned out. It was the first-processed from my recent photo trip to Maine. I'm happy with the result – it was definitely worth my effort.
I'm also very happy with the 5Ds R and 16-35 f/4L IS combination. I can say that they "rock".
