Natural (#32030)

One of my first photos of Mia. This is probably the 2nd or 3rd week we’ve had her so she’s around 2 months here and clearly a natural model.
The reason I post this photo in my Chronicles is because it’s unaltered – natural. I bent my flashgun to point at the wall to the left giving nice side lighting. I put a reflector on the right side to brighten up the shadows on the right too.

Day 3: Aphid.

IMG_4734Unfortunately artificial lighting but by this point it got quite dark so I wouldn’t be able to snap this in natural light. Reminds me of macro scenes from old documentaries where studios weren’t as elaborate as today and black backgrounds were OK.
