Day 85 - Portrait of Richard
A portrait I created of Richard using my modest home lighting setup. I've always wanted to purchase a portrait studio lighting setup, however I found that you had to be really serious about investing a large sum of money to get one. Enter Wescott Photo Basics 503, which includes three always-on halogen lamps with umbrellas, stands and a cloth backdrop for less than $500. It even came with a DVD that includes several short videos which explain how to set up and to position the lights for the most flattering effect.
The camera was set on a tripod and the white balance was set to Tungsten to accommodate the halogen lights. The portrait was then processed in Adobe Photoshop CS4 to add the border, courtesy of the folks at PhotoRadar, and then added the gallery frame.
Technical data: the aperture was f/5.6, the exposure was 1/60th of a second, and the ISO was 800.
BTB - Rhododendron Close Up - Jenkins Arboretum
A close up shot of a rhododendron at Jenkins Arboretum. I shot this with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT using the EF 75-300 mm F/4-5.6 lens. I used a +1 close up filter to posion the camera more closely to the flower in order to pull the shot without uning a formal macro lens. With this combination, I was able to get the shot and pull nice bokeh with the natural light available.
This is a good example of how someone with a basic kit can invest a few dollars in set of close-up/magnifying lenses and enjoy dabbling in macro photography without breaking the bank on lighting and lenses.
