I'm falling behind on processing the images I've shot this month because new ideas pop into my head and I just have to go play. Since we had a house full of friends last night we had a quiet, relaxing morning just kicking around the house today but I was still itching to shoot something. This type of shot is usually done in a studio, but since I hate being stuck inside on a beautiful day I wanted to see if I could create a controlled environment outside in my backyard. All ambient light here, no strobes needed (didn't think I'd be able to get away with that). Took a little creative thinking, but I think it paid off and the man of the house has requested a print for the kitchen of one of the shots (hehe!).
And I think this might just be what I need for a project I've been asked to work on, so sometimes it pays to give in to the urge to just go play.
Nothing after the jump.
