Week 5 (January 29th - February 4th) | Picture 8

Hi. My name is Jodi. And I have an OCF problem. I'm obsessed. And I must buy some black cardboard to do some things I'm wanting to try. This week I decided that I wanted to play with a white background this week and really blow it out. I don't particularly care for that look for portraits (nor do I have the lighting to achieve it on that scale), so I tried it with a glass bottle - specifically a red wine bottle.

Super easy (and cheesy) setup again. Foam core propped up by my paper shredder, speedlight sitting on a tuppeware box full of crayons, reflector propped up against the crayon box, and wine bottle sitting on the floor. (Yeah, I should probably consider better setups if this is going to continue to be a hobby of mine.)

The shot:

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 105mm f/2.8 macro
Aperture: f/8.0
Shutter Speed: 1/400
ISO: 400
Flash: SB-800 off camera, manual, 1/16th power
Exposure: manual

Here's a picture of the fancy setup. I really need to do more research on snoots to direct and control the flash a little bit more.

Stay tuned, I have a big photography day planned for February 5th and if things go well, there will be more than a couple pictures to share! :)
