… That shooting with flash wouldn’t be too bad.
That dream turned into a nightmare in real life. I’m not sure if I’ve ever so spectacularly failed at anything photo-related thus far! I guess everyone has to do a belly-flop once in a while.
The whole time I was taking photos, I had to think so hard. It made it more difficult to think about the shot itself when I was so concerned about getting the light right. The few times I did get it right, I felt like it happened by accident!
My biggest complaints are the harshness of the light and avoiding shadows.
No matter what settings I pittled with, I could never seem to get the light to calm a little. I didn’t have anything to diffuse it with either– I’m thinking about getting one of these cute mini soft boxes.
Second was avoiding shadows. This photo is a good example. I like the way the light is hitting everyone, but the shadows in the back are horrendous (and embarrassing). I feel like everywhere I moved, I still got the shadows.
I did take photos of my dog; They came out well. And since he’s so handsome, I’ll let you guys see him for yourself.
