Atlanta Business Chronicle and Cliff Oxford, Founder and and CEO of Entrepreneur Advisors presented an Entrepreneur Educational Symposium on Friday, March 18, 2011 at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta featuring Kat Cole, President of Cinnabon and Herman Cain, potential 2012 U.S. Presidential candidate.
Also on the program were Mitzi Smith Moore, CEO of Sundial Plumbing, Tom DiGregorio, President of AquaGuard Basement Systems and several real estate and finance professionals. Dave Hubbard, America’s Fitness Coach, rounded out the program.
Note: At the time of this event Buckhead On-site Photography served on the Board of Advisors and was the photographer of record for Entrepreneur Advisors through a trade in services. Unfortunately, EA did not follow through with their part of the agreement, and I am no longer a member.
- The Four Seasons ballroom is incandescently lit. The drapes were drawn, permitting “tungsten” white balance setting on the Nikon D3s complemented by a tungsten balanced SB-800 strobe.
- I was prepared to use shoot through umbrellas (SB-800 triggered with RadioPoppers), but fairly even supplemental stage lighting allowed all front-of-the-room images to be captured using available light.
- The LCD projector is positioned fairly low, and its light really created some contrasty and off-color images as it skimmed across peoples heads. I did the best I could processing in Lightroom 3.3.
- I intended to trigger a remote camera for wide room shots using onOne Software’s DSLR Camera Remote on my iPhone, but no WI-FI was available for me to use. Bummer.
- All images were shot higher than 1,000 ISO. Some were shot at 12,800, but nearly 2/3 of images captured (and 1/3 of the delivered images) were shot in the 3,200 to 6,400 ISO range.
- I used the Nikon TC-14E on the 70-200 for 33% of the delivered images. I have no fear using that combination, as long as there is enough light to permit a larger f/4.0 aperture.
- All images were post-produced in Lightroom 3.3 only; Photoshop CS5 was no used.
- 620 images where shot, 266 were delivered. (Visit here, if you want to see all of them, and I’m sure you do!)
