We’re going to ignore the fact that it’s actually Wednesday. Since Monday was a holiday today is kind of like Tuesday, right?
We had some dear friends drive over from another state and while they were here we had a photo shoot planned. Of course it decided to pour rain. Because it was our ONLY chance we made do. As the rain grew heavier I lost more and more light. I was able to get enough to take the picture but not enough to get a catch light in the eyes.
After taking a few outside we hauled indoors. There was absolutely NO window light to work with. I was feeling desperate as the boys were rapidly losing all focus (who can blame them!). I wasn’t sure they would be able to wait for me to pull out any bigger equipment. I found, laying on my floor, a large piece of white paper. I immediately bounded by speedlight flash off of it, getting more light but also creating a reflection from the white paper. Here’s the difference.
