I took these mostly to practice. I looking to get the colors clear and sharp and properly lit. And, of course, the final crop visually pleasing. I used some old iridescent white curtains I had as a background with my 2 small Ott-lite full-spectrum LED craft lights on either side behind the fabric. I also used the flash on the camera.
I'm getting more and more frustrated with my Point and Click. If my kid ever gets thru college . . . .
The EXIF shows they were taken in "portrait" mode, whatever that means. f3.5, 4.2 focal length, 1/30 exposure, iso 125.
Thanks for your time and patience!
