THATS GOOD, BUT YOUR LOSING HIS HAIR INTO THE BACKGROUND oops didnt mean to shout
Haha! No probs
Will i need to backlight to keep his hair from doing that??
Very cute expressions. I am not a fan of tilting but it works in the last one. All look very clear and crisp they are just soooo dark behind and around the kiddo.
just try different angles of light til you get what you want.
what background did you use?
Black towels!! Its all i have at the mo - not got any room in the flat for any kind of set up
interesting and did you do much post processing?
Nope, not much. i shot slightly under exposed to keep the towel black and then tweeked the exposure and fill lights in lightroom to get what i wanted.
cool. im out to buy some black towels. [apart from the hair] just goes to show sometimes you dont need 1000's of pound of equipment.
i might be calling on your help with the processing later in the week
Haha! I was suprised it worked! I did it the kitchen as the lighting is beter and i can direct the lights aswell :mrgreen: But yes ill have to take another look at sorting the hair...
Cute kid, but way underexposed. You can achieve the effect of keeping the towel dark and still have him exposed properly by pulling him out a little farther from the background. Also, try some kind of diffuser with your lights so that you dont get any deep shadows on his neck or face. Also, its been said already, but a kicker light would separate him from the background nicely. Keep trying.
Cheers NJ Ill keep at it
