Here’s the first installment of my Projet 52. The topic for this week was “Newness”. It just so happened that my sister-n-law is expecting!
This was taken with a white muslin backdrop and 2 SB-900’s. There was one Flash on each side of the subject and aimed directly at the backdrop. If I’m not mistaken, they were both at full power.
After attending the Zack Arias OneLight Workshop, I’ve been really trying to learn more about lighting. I’ve been experimenting with different ways to light the subjects in portraits. I’ve played with grids, snoots, and other modifiers. These images were both taken using only one light directly infront of the subjects with a 60 inch umbrella.
On a different note, Today is January 2, 2012, Last year at this time i attempted a Project 365! WOW my hat goes off to those who can complete this! It’s a ton of work and dedication. I quickly realized that there was no way I could complete it! This year I decided to do a Project 52. One image per week for 52 weeks. The first image will be posted soon!
More to come… cm
