Day 264: The Uke

9/30 of anything but me

The kids pooled their savings together a few weeks ago and bought themselves a ukulele. I thought I’d play with light today to see if I could only light the inside of the uke’s body. Even over rolling my Flashbender into the tightest snoot it could possibly make didn’t do the trick of keeping light off of the top of the body. I’d need a much more focused light…maybe one of those cool gridded snoots. Fancy! In the end, I liked how the shadowing with this shot turned out.
