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.
This post concludes Macro Week #3. Next up are some more toy soldiers.
Here I was going for a minimalist, almost studio-like look. Similar set-up to shutterpresser.com/2014/07/19/day-4-thistle with a radial filter brightening the left side along with the moss, to form a gradient.
Another housemate falls victim to my shooting…
This is mostly what I do when we play poker. Perfect time to take photos because they can’t run away from winning the game!
Flash behind him on a radiator… A few adjustments in lightroom helped bring out the dark left side and tone down the forehead.
Just proves that you don’t need a studio to take portraits.
