Hi - it's been a while since I posted, but I have some pictures I'd like to submit for critique. This is a follow up to my previous post regarding a small home studio set up for a beginner. After all of the recommendations, I purchased a boom stand, a rouge flash bender portrait kid, and a second rogue flash bender with diffusion panels. I chose this set up for portability and upon recommendations on the boom stand from privatebydesign - the boom stand was an awesome recommendation!
So, I started with a self portrait using a single flash and a flashbender soft box, and I have to admit that it was hideous. I definitely won't be posting that here. But, I later started using a two flash set up with flash bender soft boxes to take some product style photography, which I will post here
My daughter collected some wild flowers and I took the opportunity to work on my flash photography skills with the flowers in a shot glass. The back ground is a black towel and I have not edited the photographs. These are straight out of the camera. I had a flash on the right set to 1/8th power, and one on the left set to 1/16th power. Ambient light was provided by the light in my dining room.
For those interested - the flowers are called Indian Paintbrushes and are very common to central Texas.
So how did I do for a first try?
Thanks for your feedback,
