232-234/365 Catch up . . .

There were some questions about my lighting in the last post. Honestly, I set my speed light on a stand, camera right with the sun setting in the background. I miss spoke when I said 2 speed lights. I only used one. I played with the light until I liked how the image looked. Not very scientific but it's all I got. Thanks for the comments everyone.


Just because - I think diamonds need special lighting and I haven't figured it out.

Yesterday was our 6th wedding anniversary and Dave & I took off for the day. We went to Saugatuck, Michigan and found this amazing garden full of roses. Just awesome.




I had the opportunity and the privilege to second shoot with Shawn Reimers from Artistic Photography in Iowa this Saturday and here a just a couple of the many great images.

Sounds like fun and a great time to learn!

Love the idea about the ring shot, only wish there wasn't that blown highlight.

Really like that last rose shot!

On that ring shot - I wonder if using a snoot on your speedlight would help you get the light right on the diamonds?

Happy Anniversary! (a little late) What a great idea to take the day off and go do fun things together! Beautiful roses!

I bet second shooting with Shawn was an amazing experience! That couple looks like fun! Nice work!
