We are starting off 2016 with a very apt theme for Project 52: NEW. I have so many new things planned for 2016 already that it was hard to decide how I would run with the theme. I’ll be working on marketing, setting up an Instagram account, creating a list of new photography models (horses, cats, & even sheep!), some graphite drawings planned, and there will eventually be a web site tied to this blog. Hoof N Paw is stepping it up a notch and I’m so excited!
In the end, I decided that it was high time to work on off camera flash for this weeks theme. I’ve had a flash unit but only used it once, outside. Never inside. I prefer the light of the sun. This week, however, our snow was going through a melt-off (that icky, brown muck) so I needed to take photos inside and with the flash. I played around with how the light bounced off my ceiling for quite a while. The Border Collie boys got a bit bored with me but I love the end results!
Yes, Mr. Balan is a gentleman wearing flowers, hehe. I found the flower clip at Hobby Lobby this week and had to get it for all the future pet ladies I photograph. I told Mr. Balan that he would need to oblige me, this time, and wear them so that I could see how they worked out.
As in most of my photos, I used my Canon 85mm f1.8 lens. I have the 50mm but the 85 just can’t be beat.
Now, please head over to Shelley Castle Photography for more NEW photos. Link below…
