I had about a 14 hour day at work today so it was a bit of a scramble to come up with a photo. I like the concept and composition of this, but I’m not necessarily a fan of my backdrop, but you work with what you got. Someday I’ll buy some drop cloths and those fancy floor sections for photo studios haha.
One thing I hoped to accomplish when undertaking this photo challenge was developing my skills as a strobist. Natural light is incredible when the conditions are right, but the conditions aren’t always right, and natural light isn’t always there. Having a good understanding of light and being able to manipulate it are key skills in photography. One of my xmas presents was a gel set for my SB600. I haven’t had to use it all that much yet, but I haven’t shot many things indoors to where I’ve needed it either. I did receive a few other strobist related gifts for xmas, but I’ll save those for another post.
