Today was a boring like day. Every sunday is a boring day for me.
And today, as ever, I didn’t do anything interesting and the day was finishing in a couple of hours. At 8 pm, I thought: “Why not now”. And I finally decided to make a self-portrait. Yes, that’s me.
Setup: SB-800 inside 40×60 softbox (f/8) at left of camera and SB-800 with semi-collapsed silver umbrella at right of camera and a little bit behind me (f/8).
Camera info: Nikon D300 | 17-55 (ƒ/2.8D) | ƒ/13.0 | ISO 200 | 1/250s — Tripoded
I took this shot during a tour, yesterday. I was looking for a high key shot and I got it. But, I missed the composition.
And if you to ask me “why Did you do that?”, I’d answer: “I don’t know, maybe I’m losing my mind…” or “I should pay more attention to what I’m doing”.
I guess that I was wondering about light ratios and flash power and I didn’t pay attention to framing…I could figure it out, but it’s just a play shot and it isn’t all bad.
Setup: Sun at left and SB-800 (+1 EV) in silver umbrella at right. Triggered by built-in flash (-1 EV) in CLS mode.
Camera info: Nikon D300 | 85mm (ƒ/1.8D) | ƒ/5.6 | ISO 200 | 1/320 s — Handheld
