Love-Song is dedicated to my wife, Julie. On this day, a decade ago, I proposed to her. It is also dedicated to all the wives and fiances who are fighting overseas in the Canadian and American Forces. (Thankfully, my wife is not one of them.)


Happy Valentine's Day!


You may have seen a similar photo online before and mine is just a copy of this same technique. As I did not have a red filter I de-saturated the outline leaving the colour as photographed with a high kelvin white balance. Be sure to view photo at its largest size.


Strobist info: item is lit by one strobe. SB-800 without diffuser on Manual x 1/32 from above and behind angled down to cast the shadow on The Compact Oxford English Dictionary.


See the studio set up for this here.
