Home Sick

My little girl has the flu this week so she is at home, resting.

Just to annoy her (not intentionally, but she hates posing for photos unless its the spinning ones)  I asked if I could take some pictures of her.

I wanted to try one of the techniques from Rachel Devine’s E-book Click, which was to practice side lighting, and a serious pose.

She wasn’t keen on the idea.




It wasn’t true side lighting as I also had a window behind my head that I couldn’t cover, so I will have to try a different window if I want to get that shadowed look on one half of her face.

Images shot at Aperture: 4.0, Shutter: 320, ISO 250 on Aperture Priority mode.
