I’ve been feeling really good about my images lately. It has given me a boost to want to create more. Here’s a few that I’ve done over the weekend. All shot with available light with a single reflector for fill.
Ah, the fern. I struggled with this one a bit. I knew I wanted a much darker ambiance to wrap the whole image. This took a little bit of time to accomplish. I had to shoot from different angles to get the image that I had in mind. In the end, I found that shooting above eye level yielded the best result. I used the silver side of my reflector to add some fill on the tip of the fern.
I ended up with a memory card full of images, but I had to be ruthless and keep only the best ones. That is another thing I’ve learned, to not be afraid to delete the ones that were simply ok. After all, I am trying to produce great images. It’ll probably take some time before I can completely adopt that mentality, but I’ll get there. One day at a time.
