In The Dark

Fun with lighting.

Today had a single flash, with a small softbox, stationed on the floor off camera to the right.

It was just a bit further away than the rear of the dogs, pointing at a 45 degree angle toward them and angled slightly upward.

The reflector was turned dark side out and guarded the front of the Fridge (on the left) to block any stray bits of light. You'd be amazed how reflective a big white fridge can be!

I was both surprised and pleased with how these turned out, and will definitely try it again.

After I mop the floor.

The camera and flash both sitting on the floor make every dust speck look like Mt. Everest.

The boys had to pause, in a dark room, for me to take the pictures!

Just looks at all those dust specks.

Stunning. The first photo of Henry has just enough light that you can see his eye.
