    A wee bit bored this afternoon so I thought I would play around with some gels and my flash.

    1/60, F/8.0, ISO 1000 (why do I always forget to check this beforeshooting?), flash at 1/4 power

    The original idea was to capture this guy hiding amongst all of my food until I opened up the fridge and realized I need to go grocery shopping.

    I have pickles, eggs, and pico de gallo. What more does a man need lol.

    Thanks for the comments guys. This was a bit different than what I'm used to and I'll spend some more time practicing this. It was kind of fun to do on a lazy afternoon.

    Thanks again everyone. Any ideas on how you might have done it differently?

    Is there a good way to get less red with gels? I tried desaturating the reds in Lightroom and since the entire image is red it resulted in an almost BW image lol.

    Pump more light through the gel and it should be less-saturated. I liked the top photo.

    I like the first one, and it fits the title of the thread. I did notice the left side is just a smidge higher than the right side.

    So instead of 1/4 power bump it up to 1/2 power or more?

    And I tried tilting the top one because I noticed the same thing (it's driving me crazy) but when I did that then the shelves weren't straight lol. Next time I do something like this I'll be more careful. I think it's because the sodas on the left are closer to the camera than those on the right.
