Day 230

We did it! Ken and I made a do-it-yourself beauty dish!! I’m so excited! We used this tutorial and created this:

(In retrospect, we would not use Gorilla glue to affix the reflector because it looks icky from here. Oh well.)

Here are a couple shots I took with it. I’ll be practicing with multiple lights and such soon, but we were shooting outside, and the bugs were AWFUL!

Just a note to the photographers…all these shots were taken within 10 minutes of each other (as I said, the bugs were really bad!). The black or dark background was created by changing my shutter speed. I finally did it! Yay! The background for both portraits was a cluster of trees.

I just can’t wait to really learn how to use all these fun things!

Very cool, love the last one, what drama!

As for the gorilla glue can you lightly sand it and then dab some white paint on it?

Well look at you grow! I'm impressed.
Great image of Ken - very dramatic!
