Ummm…. ok. So I’m practicing the whole strobey light thingy. Ok, so I’ve mentioned that strobing is hard, right? It takes practice. If you don’t have time to learn it, you’re going to get really frustrated, really fast. Either committ to learning and seeing light or find a different hobby. The photo above is a self portrait. The goal of the photo was to light a portion of my face. Is the photo perfect? Well, it depends on what YOU consider perfect. Did I accomplish my goal and learn something during the process? Absolutely! To get the shot, I used my SB600, a shoot-through umbrella and the movie screen in my basement as the backdrop. Lesson learned: Patience is a virtue, Shutter speed is a God-send.
