That Dead Leaf Again…

So, day three of playing with a dead leaf.

(Even a cat wouldn’t play with a leaf as long as this). Today I set up the light tent, and put the leaf in it. I lit the tent with a Rotolight Neo, and used the Fujifilm X-T30. I had three objectives:

  2. To create shadows by bringing the Rotolight down from the top of the tent tone side of the tent. (Left, so I could hold it by hand, and use the camera in my right hand)
  3. To mount the Rotolight on the camera hotshoe.

Black and White Without the Noir!

Black and White Without the Noir!

I love Black and White, the images have a timeless quality about them, and the lack of colour seems to make the mind work harder to interpret the image, a provocative  gestalt.  But does it work in the studio, under studio flash lighting?  It does for adults, – but what about for kids?  And does studio monochrome always have to be so noir?

Scarlett visted the studio this evening with her mum and her little sister to make some lovely photographs and memories, and among them was this little black and white portrait.

So, does this image work for you?

It works for me!

Saturday Studio Sessions – 10/8/19

Great studio sessions today, mostly involving babies! (Of one sort or another!)

First in was newborn baby Alex, who posed eloquently in the baby hammock, with mummy and daddy holding him safe at each end.  And if you think he’s going to roll out, don’t worry, and please don’t have nightmares – the hammock is safely resting on a table!
