Project 50 - Day #6 (Midnight)

50 Days, 50 photos, shot on a 50mm prime.


View On Black


This was a challenging shot to say the least. Dealing with 3 flashes in a VERY reflective room is a bit tricky. Another thing I battled was steam from the shower, the water was pretty much freezing cold so that steam wouldn't fog up the window in the back or glass between me and the camera. I also wasn't able to review my shots to make sure they were turning out, so I just had to hope.


That said, I'm not entirely happy with this shot. Could be a lot better IMO, but it was a great learning experience.


The shot was lit entirely by flashes (including one outside on the deck on an 8ft stand zoomed to max...Joe McNally style). Setting the white balance to tungsten gave me this awesome feeling that the shot is lit by moonlight.
