I got a few pictures from my last studio shoot up now. I got to take pictures of three people. That made for a lot going on. I first shot this family in the studio:
This was a very squirrelly kid. I got a couple. This was probably the best. Then we shot another photographer, Ms. Cannon. We took pictures in the studio first, then moved out into the hall. I got a couple in the studio, but I had a difficult time getting a good look. She really didn’t want to smile. She didn’t like that look, but she seemed way to serious if I didn’t get some sort of smile from her.
The goal with this pictures was to get a picture of her with the camera, and the Canon logo.¬† This was another ring light shot. I liked the ring light shots with the previous model better. There seems to be a difference in the color of the face that I am still trying to figure out.
“This was another ring light shot. I liked the ring light shots with the previous model better.

Try a CTO gel over the flash too. That drives me nuts sometimes myself; when I have to use a camera-mounted flash I always hope for a white ceiling; otherwise I usu. have to gel the flash so it doesn’t look so harsh.
