If you weren’t able to follow me while I was blogging on my website you wouldn’t know that I’ve delved into a bit of headshot and portrait work. It’s a bit overwhelming to understand the nuances of off camera flash techniques when just starting out.
I do know that I like the so called butterfly lighting in which the light is directly in front of the subject and coming in from above the camera. You can see this light in the upper middle section of my daughters eye.
I had another session with my daughter today utilizing butterfly lighting and here’s the original of one of the shots…I really like this one after I took it into Perfect Photo Suite 9 (Portrait Module). Maybe a bit much on the eyes now that I look closer but I’m pretty satisfied.
My daughter wanted more of an Istagram look so I went with this look from Nik’s Color Efex Pro 2…
Happy Valentines Day to you all!
