Day 260: Girls Who Wear Glasses

5/30 anything but me

I had these fun glasses and wanted to do something with them. So, today’s shot is what I came up with. I felt my way through the lighting, just playing until I found a combo I liked. Balancing the warmth of the vanity light with the bright white of the flash was tricky, hence the antique filter. In hindsight, had I gelled the flash I maybe could have kept some of the color. The end result is a product of two shots, both with the same camera settings but with the flash moved to capture the mirror/reflection separate from the remainder of the shot.

Camera Specs (same for both shots):
1/160 sec @ f/8, 24mm, ISO 100

Light Specs (shot 1 – just mirror):
Flash: 1 Canon 430 EXII @ 1/8
Modifiers: none
Placement: on axis with camera, aimed at ceiling in back room
Triggering Device: Cowboy Studio Triggers

Light Specs (shot 2 – all but mirror):
Flash: 1 Canon 430 EXII @ 1/32
Modifiers: Lumiquest Flashbender rolled into snoot
Placement: ~1ft left of glasses & shot across plane of vanity
Triggering Device: Cowboy Studio Triggers

Processing LR 4.4 & PSE 11
