My mother used to say that I shouldn’t play with my food. I remember some gag about not playing with your food until you’ve eaten all your toys.. but instead I was playing with my toys while playing with my food.
For the photographers: Neewer TT850 (a rebadged Godox V850) into a 120cm Octa, with silver reflector. Fuji X-10 with 18-55mm OIS at 55. 1/8 power ISO250 1/180 f5, f7.1. Triggered with Yong Nuo RF602 set, as the Godox transmitter wasn’t in the bag. First image had Octa on the left, the second from behind me.
After uploading the post, I realized the gear was still set up from before I got distracted with editing the site after changing the sites theme (did you notice?). So I went out and did a little more styling and did a BTS shot. Also for processing I just changed the Profile to Pro Neg Std and tweaked shadows and highlights. While a little darker and less saturated, I think it looks more natural. Here’s the shot:
And here’s the BTS, with the Octa on the left and the reflector (a windscreen sun shade) on the right. Pardon the mess, it was unplanned!
