Studio experimentation II


in Daily updates, Geek stuff, Photography

Following up on my previous table-top efforts, here is a photographic lighting experiment on a human scale. My brother Mica kindly provided the material for the photons to bounce off of.

These all use manual metering for both flash and exposure (none of that ‘through the lens metering’ stuff). Lighting is provided by a 430EX flash, shot through an umbrella, and my white-on-one-side-soft-gold-on-the-other reflector.

As with before, these are original and unmodified files, with no after-the-fact digital alterations applied.

Shooting most of these down in my semi-finished basement was Mica’s idea, and a very good one at that. It makes for a much more interesting backdrop than my generic upstairs walls.

This is excellent!!! So sorry I missed the action.

It was very accessible for the pyjama-clad and bulldogs.

The photos are wonderful and the setting too. Mica makes a good subject because he is not self-conscious in front of the camera. Hope you are having a good visit.

I also like this photo. Mica looks like a rock star.

Why did you include this one? It isn’t exposed properly, and isn’t an attractive accident.
