In addition to the photographs of Maggie and her sister that I took, we also took some portraits of Maggie by herself on the patio. I used two variations of the same lighting set up with the difference being an added backlight on one.
This first one is without the backlight. [singlepic id=529 w=800 h=700 float=] This one has the backlight turned on and directed at the back of the subject’s head. I used a half-snoot to shade the light from spilling down around the bench. [si
I recently purchased a new piece of gear that is going to be great for family portraits and other types of portrait photography. The item is an Alien Bees B800 studio flash. These are very popular strobes and have gotten great reviews so after comparing a lot of options, I decided to go for it. Once it comes, I will post some more information about it. #equipment #flash #lighting
