A beautiful 1 year old photo shoot
My last post described a great place for a photo shoot, on the north side over looking the ocean. Saturday we had a wonderful time with baby S, an extra cute 1 year old, and her parents. I'm hoping they will enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. If you know Kim and Jeff, perhaps they will let you on to the webpage where I have uploaded them, or maybe they will share on facebook. I will be asking them for permission to load a few shots to the blog page for public viewing. Thanks Jeff and Kim for the opportunity!
I will say that, although I was generally pleased with the outcome, I wish I had a "real" diffuser, instead of my homemade one. Although it worked OK, a store bought diffuser (which I have lost somehow), definitely gives a more even lighting onto the subject, and illuminates the subject better over all. Also, I am still trying to figure out how one goes about using fill flash when using a large aperture in bright conditions. Using a large aperture in sunlight generally means a very fast shutter speed, and when you slow it down to 180 or less for flash - sync, it is to slow for the exposure and over exposure occurs. Short of buying a new camera that allows "high speed flash sync" (translation : $5000 + for the body only), I'm wondering if there is another way. Obviously you could stop down to a small aperture to get a slower shutter, but then it looks like a snap shot with infinite depth of field... Anyway, thank goodness for fill light in post processing!
