Winter is coming.
For those of us living in Nova Scotia that means it will get dark around 4:00pm and snow for 6 months straight.
My photography thrives on the natural light of summer, so this year, for me, the coming of winter means one thing. It's time to break out the strobes I bought last Christmas and start practicing again.
I am on a mission to figure out how to make flash look like natural light and I think I'm on the right track.
When Sean and I travelled to Italy, our hotel in Rome kept hardboiled eggs inside a nesting hen dish on the breakfast buffet and I've been infatuated with them ever since. I bought this one at an outdoor flea market in Mahone Bay two weekends ago for $12. Glass and crystal are notoriously tricky to shoot, and learning how to photograph them well is also on my list of things to accomplish.
So what do you think of my lighting? Does it look like window light at all to you? What do you think of my attempt at photographing glass?
