Some of my family is getting as bad as I am about waiting for the next issue of Professional Photographer Magazine to come in the mail! Grace is one of them. As we were both looking it over after church tonight, we decided to “practice” some of the suggestions.
I shoot primarily on location. I don’t have a studio. I don’t really do studio lighting. We tried our hand at studio lighting…in my bedroom – which happens to be pretty small. I was really pleased with the results.
This is the set up for anyone that is interested.
One softbox – high – behind Grace, to my left, basically used as a hair light.
One SB-900 bouncing light into a gold or silver reflector to get highlights in eyes and soften shadows.
I shot with a Nikon 24-70 lens.
It was late!! We had fun!!!
Those are the results…at least a few of them. I am all about learning and growing. In all areas of my life. I’m glad my girls are too!
If you’ve got a great room in your house…and a beautiful child to go with it :), call me and we’ll set up a time to take some sweet pics!
In the meantime, find something that stretches you, something that causes you to extend beyond your comfort zone…grow!
It’s Spring, it’s the season for new things, it’s the season for growth!
