Portrait Practice 65/365
I read about a portrait technique of using natural light, but not direct sunlight, coming in through a window to light your subject. Then use shielded/defused fill flash to control the level and position of shadow for the other side of the face.
Since all my potential models were not in a cooperative mood today I used the dyed rose my wife received as a gife from our youngest daughter.
As a learning experience I saw how changing the position and power of the light delivered the desired effect. However, it didn’t translate well to a picture of a rose, so I selected one with a less dramatic affect.
