365 Project : Day 225

Finding an interesting shot in portraiture is quite different compared to landscapes. The thought process is different when composing; I myself find portraits more challenging because you need to capture a specific look which can happen at any moment, compared to landscapes in which you have more time to compose and get that perfect shot we want. But, both are very rewarding once the image in your camera matches the image you have in your mind.

Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 17-50 f2.8 OS HSM
Settings: f2.8 | 1/100 | ISO 100

Strobist:
580exii + umbrella @ 1/32 power on camera left
silver reflector below to fill in some details on the shadows
7D’s built in flash transmitter

Post process:

  • WB adjustment in Camera Raw
  • Curves adjustments
  • Dodging and burning

Cheers!
