As I mentioned, I’m not going to let myself take anymore macro shots for a little bit. I’m going to force myself out of my microscopic rut, and start shooting some larger subjects.
In this case the subject isn’t that much larger. The little one let me practice some lighting while she practiced catching her Pokemon.
I was aiming for loop lighting. I believe I achieved the technical definition of loop lighting – the shadow on one side of the nose which is not connected to the shadow on the cheek – but I’m not terribly happy with the effect. The lighting in general is harsher than I’d like.
Assuming I can convince the girls to let me continue shooting them over the next few days, I think this is an area I’ll practice a bit.
