Back in the studio today with two lighting scenarios. The first was for this shot: a high umbrella (8 feet all the way to ceiling) at a high angle down; two lights on the background to blow it out white; can't see much of it, but a bare sb-600 is pointed to the back of Adolfo's head and gives a slight highlight.
Today, I found myself at a Barnes & Noble mid-morning reading a few pages of 'Annie Lebovitz At Work'. Inspirational and set me on a good path for the day. I spent the day thinking about taking photos.
PhotoFrustration #8: The room i have carved out in my garage is very cramped. For shots like this i find myself having to squat, bend and contort myself to avoid my lights. It's probably a good time for me to take things on the road now that the days are a bit longer.
