Remember Allah by saying mashallah ... :)
I took some shots of my niece Arwa at my house in Kuwait, when I was there for summer break '07. It was my first photo shoot using 3 Speedlites with umbrellas. The lighting might look like that in studio, but the setting is very different. I intended to show the place, I killed the background details to keep the focus on the kid using long focal length from my telephoto lens. It may be seen as a distracting background by many people.
- Canon 30D
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L.
- 2 Speedlite 580EX facing umbrellas placed on the sides, 1 Speedlite 430EX fired thru an umbrella on the ground (camera left).
- The room is very large, it offers long distance b/w the camera and the subject.
- For a small depth of field (DOF), it is better to shoot at telephoto range than the use of large apeture. The image won't be overexposed by the flashes, and crisper details will be provided.
- I think it is interesting to include all parts of the model in 1 frame with blurry background. It isolates his/her whole body from the place. In this shot I did that by lowering the angle to raise Arwa up and reduce the floor surface area.
