Yes, I did take two weeks off of blog writing. A much needed break from everything and fun with the grandkids. Especially this dude, who came and stayed with us while attending camp.
First, delving into the archives. Anyone remember this photo of our Moe on another set of metal playground equipment?
When I heard the theme for the week, my brain immediately went to the small metal crown I bought several years ago to have as an accessory for photos. It has been sitting in my closet on a shelf since then, but immediately popped into my mind. My chance to use it.
Lilah and I trooped over to the studio and after 201 attempts of having her try to sit still with it on her head, we finally got a shot that worked.
For the photographers who read, I used a 70-200mm 2.8 Sigma lens on a Nikon D800 body. Natural light streaming in from the door was my primary light source to a solid white background. I dropped in the painted background in post processing, and added the wispy look to photo as well. I also added a bit of pinkish treatment (a little more girly) by not brushing/masking off all of the background in certain areas. I think Lilah's nose is shaped like a heart in this photo. What do you think?
For more metal mania, the blog circle starts this week with Jo Lyons Photography - down-to-earth dog loving photographer for cherished dogs of Sydney up to the Great Lakes Region of NSW. Click on the link to get there, then look for the link at the end of every blog to move around the circle. Enjoy!
