Project 365: Week 23

Welcome to the 23rd week of my 365 day project! As I mentioned in my last post, I am currently creating a ‘family series’ to go up on one of our walls; I therefore dedicated this past week to photographing my family members.

Goldie – As my labrador, at the grand age of 14, only has one eye (the other had a melanoma growing behind it and therefore had to be removed) I wanted to take more of a side-profile image of her.  I used bounce flash off the ceiling to create a lower-contrast image.

Romulus – This is Romulus, the baby of the family.  I used diffused side flash for this image, illuminating the side of his face upturned towards a treat.

Phoebe – This is Phoebe, a rescue we adopted after fostering her.  As you can see from the photo, she was getting ready to catch any treats that may fall her way.

Tinkerbell – Tinkerbell is my usual model, as she has the ability to sit absolutely still if there is a promise of an edible reward.  She wasn’t as well-behaved as usual – she didn’t seem too sure of the flash – but she still allowed me to take some photos.

Agnes – Agnes is our domestic worker, who allowed me to take a few shots of her.  I placed the flash at camera-left, bouncing it off the ceiling but using the little reflector card to create some soft side-light.

Saturday, 06 June

Muffin incognito – The family is coming over for tea today as a late birthday celebration, so yesterday my mom and I decorated some muffins in preparation.  This is a chocolate muffin, topped with caramel and a Ferrero Rocher, lit with a bounce flash positioned slightly behind the muffin and to camera-left.  In retrospect, I probably should have taken the paper off…

Enjoy the rest of your week!
