    Hola!

    I've been looking at them again and I agree that #2 looks more natural. Saturama oranges are very bright in real life but the first shot looks a bit less natural.

    This was a tough exercise for me but it was good to do. I had to really think about my settings and why they wouldn't work before I made changes. Nice brain stretch!

    My guy...



    Shutter: 1/25
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO: 3200


    This is my guy: Liked the color combo and attempted to play with lighting, desk lamp. don't like the high ISO, but when trying to lower; it just didn't work out. I def. need to learn lighting.


    P.S. - With that said, you gotta admit he's a cutie.

    Awww! I love teddy bears! I have mine from when I was a toddler still

    Maybe do the same that I did and use a deflector/reflector on the side that is casting the shadow (opposite your light source) and see if that helps. You should be able to lower your ISO then

    Merci! I'm going to get the book "Hot Shoe Diaries", suppose to be a good read on lighting.

    I made a simply deflector from foam board I bought at Staples this week. I bought white and black board and just cut it in half and duct taped it together so it forms a "v" and you can adjust it accordingly

    It makes a world of difference when it comes to light casting shadows on your subject.

    LB your pictures are really good, your ideas and backdrops work well. You probably already surpassed my lighting knowledge...

    Great pic Chinks... love the light fall off from one side of his face to the other gives it a sort of dramatic feel

    Def think lighting is probably the most important thing in photography... I'm going to do what Chinks said and read that hot shoe diaries book... That's just going to make me spend more $$

    Tripple B, I'm sooooooo digging this shot.

    This is even better than last week's submission. I'm getting a feel of peaceful isolation. Like I could lay in the snow and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature.

    Oh this is marvelous Triple B!

    I love the desolateness of winter shots (I have an entire pinterest board devoted to them ) and then you have the bright flower peeping up representing hope and our faith that spring will come! I love when a photo can tell a story as it were.

    @Chinks - now you got me looking for the book too! lol

    @Cookie Munster - I bookmarked the video to watch later so I can concentrate. Gotta work this morning

    @ Triple B - Thanks for the encouragement. Its funny how many photographers I am meeting out of the blue now. lol People who do it professionally on the side to their "day job" or those who have done it previously full time. And they all say the same thing...lighting, lighting, lighting.....so I've thrown myself into learning all I can about it and making due with the camera and props instead of editting later to adjust. Like I said earlier, this is a great mental exercise for me

    I hope the vid helps to open your minds when it comes to lighting..

    funny story, i had to refer back to that principle, some weeks aback. I took some pics for a friend of mine dance and didnt realise my flash battery died, and took some of the pics by placing myself on the side of the subject that had the better lighting..

    example:




    f-stop: f/5.6
    exposure time: 1/2 sec.
    ISO: 3200

    My submission for this week



    f-stop: f/5.6
    exposure time: 1/125 sec.
    ISO: 3200

    This is a pic of one of my co worker.

    there is natural light coming in on his right hand side through some blinds, and florescent lights overhead

    one of the most photogenic rastaman i have ever seen, and he oozes confidence.

    Really like this one, his skin looks awesome. Good use of the natural light coming in.
