Work has been hecktic and I haven't managed to make the time for photography, so while baby sitting my two littlies I decided to try out this technique that I recently read in a UK Photogrpahy magazine.
After managing to get what I thought was the right exposure settings I had approximately 15 secs of shooting before it all went pear shaped due to tired, hungry kids (read "arsnic hour") aborting the assignment. I got about 20 shots off and then called it a day. The pic below is the best of the bunch:
D90 18-105mm @ 50mm hand held, f5, 1/40sec (VR on), ISO 1000 with natural light to immediate camera left, reflector to camera right, and two large windows right behind and slighly above me for the catch lights (light behind me, light behind me...thanks Colin ) The backdrop is a piece of MDF painted with white undercoat/sealer
Comments and criticism always welcome
Take 2, less bright...
Well, it was in my PP (doesn't look much different, does it?)!
