Hi everybody. Tonight I took some portraits of a good friend of mine. Her name is Erin and as you can see, she plays the piano. We worked in a small room so I used both the 18-105VR and the 50mm lens.
It was challenging. How do you portray someone with a big, black instrument and make it look nice? So, we tried various poses, angles and these are the ones I liked the most. I hope Erin will agree with me.
The lighting was extremely poor so I used my SB600 strobe mounted on a stand off camera and shoot through a white umbrella. It was a lot of fun to move the light in various places and see what came out. Also, to play with the shutter speed, aperture, ISO triangle to get an optimal exposure.
I processed all shots in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.0 and applied different color treatments for different looks.
Had lots of fun and didn't even noticed when the 1.5 hours passed at the photo shoot.
Wednesday I'm traveling to Paris and I think there will be some photos happening over there. Very exciting times!!!!
