[ little dinosaur ] – An Adventure With Eve
Posted on 27 December 2011
Whew, with the holidays all piled up and a busy December, I didn’t have time to do a blog post, but rest assured, I was up to some fun stuff! My regular work is comprised largely of corporate and architectural photography (blog posts way overdue), but I also worked on a custom collage display for a client (blog post still in the works), and this, episode two of what I’m calling the “little hero” series (though I don’t know what I’ll call it eventually).
This is Eve, she turned two this year just a couple of days before Christmas. We took the studio photos in November, and I went out looking for interesting scenes to incorporate for a couple of weeks after that. As you can see, she’s quite the ham. She loves to dance and she’s very curious!
Here’s a fun selection of the studio shots. My plan was to shoot the backgrounds at sunrise and sunset, or with heavily directional light from one side (like a streetlamp casting light into a wooded area). So, this time I set up the Elinchrom small octa at toddler level with only the intermediate diffuser and a dish reflector behind that. There is a big 3×6 reflector on the right adding fill, and two strobes behind cutters to fill in the seamless.
