Day 194 – Keep Trying

There is a quote out there. That amateurs practice until they get it right. Pros practice until they can’t get it wrong. Either way I am going to be practicing my lighting techniques for quite a while. For the record I don’t even try posing him it is just impossible.

50mm f/8 1/40s

I will have to start recording my lighting set up so that I can remember them. This was an umbrella to the subjects right and a speed light to the lower left both @ 1/8 power with the slow shutter for the window light.

Nice lighting. I’m not quite sure about his expression…. You’re going to be a lighting pro before I even purchase my first OCF. You’ll have to teach me the ropes and tricks. I think I might need to rent one the weekend before the reception (it is an outdoor reception from 6-8pm)

You’re not sure. I on the other hand think that he looks a little unhinged. I have given up trying for a smile from him. I think he does best with the quizzical look I had hoped that is what I had gotten, but I didn’t. Maybe next time. 🙂
