Day 103/365: What To Eat...

Press "L" to view large on black!

  

This is another safety today. My friend came in from Philly for a couple weeks of his summer break. I want to take a portrait of him, but I don't know if I'll be able to get it tonight, we'll see what happens. If not, then I'm sure I get one before he leaves, I just wanted to have a photo instead of scrambling while I'm out with everyone.

 

There are quite a few things wrong with this photo. The focus is off, like, a lot. The lighting isn't what I's want it to be at all really. I should have had a softbox or something small to the top right, maybe use a narrower focal length so you don't actually see the inside of the fridge, just the door. I would have also used another strobe, maybe gelled to light up the back of me/the room a little bit, since I pretty much just fade into it. But I didn't have the time :S.

 

Edit: Welp, plans fell through. Probably going to be seeing everyone tomorrow. I had a feeling this would happen since he just got into town, which is one of the reasons for the safety :P.

YN 560: Camera right in fridge pointed at the top/side inside wall of the fridge to bounce back. @ ~1/4 power.
