I finally did it

I bought a strobe (with a real live modeling light) and a decent-sized soft box. And of course, I’m practicing.  These are pretty much how they came out of the camera with just minor processing.

As always, Nina makes a semi-willing subject. The nice thing about the strobe is that it recycles quickly, allowing me to make another shot almost immediately. The soft box provides a soft, but well-directed light.

Maya sat still for a few seconds. Thank goodness for the strobe’s quick recycle!

She’s looking a little twitchy in this one.


  1. The last one as if says, take quickly otherwise I don’t stay more here like that 🙂
