Photography, C19 Edition

Good morning Oppo, weekend project time for me. The DSLR and some new clothes have been collecting dust, so I exercised them in a lockdown-approved photography session.

The cars had to be moved—a minor pain due to the narrow street. But the real challenge was borrowing the local involuntary model and convincing/paying her to get dolled up for this.

Canon EOS 40D (yes, ancient)

Soft white flash umbrella + stand
Canon Speedlite 430EX on wireless trigger


The results were pretty good; the flash umbrella provides a very even light distribution.

There are still a few visual distractions in here, so I will crop it further for portrait use.
