I’m not a big fan of post-processing but if in need I will do it. In the case of these series I did! I’m curious about the hype of retro style in photos or the plastic lens look but never had the chance to apply it on my own shots, well it looks nice to others (photos) but trying it myself makes a difference. I did love it better than doing HDR. I have nothing agains HDR but some photographers seem to overdo it… In a very weird way. I guess there is no wrong way or right way post-processed or not. Different people, different way/technique of achieving their own style – whatever suits you.
This photo was taken one boring Sunday afternoon. Need a break from playing my guitar so I thought of taking a photo of it. It’s a bit tricky to achieve this effect because I tried few angles on the speedlight to bounce light on the right spot (I don’t want to over lit the whole thing) but its’s wort the effort… and it’s fun!!!
Low key photography – placing the light(s) on the right place just to bounce enough amount of light and give an interesting highlight to the subject. Taken with Nikon D700, my humble lens Nikon AF 50mm F1.8D (replaced with the AF-S version) and Nikon SB-900 Speedlight.
I just want to share this special photo session with my wife while she’s pregnant with our baby Kirsten Jae (Kae). Strobbing is one of my favorite photography style you can take full control of the lights more like painting with speedlights instead of paint and brush. Gears used: Nikon D700, my former lens Nikon 50mm f1.8D (replaced with Nikon 50mm f1.4 AF-S version), Nikon SB-900 and Nikon SB-600 Speed lights (CLS).
