Birds Nest Fern

I was looking out the kitchen window yesterday morning and saw the morning sun back lighting this fern.

Shot one image with an extension tube on, then caught this one.20141019-IMG_8408-Edit

With photographic lighting the rule of thumb is – large lights further away give softer lighting than small lights close up.

You can’t get much further or bigger than the Sun!

Thats why the big Octa quads are used for fashion and modelling – they are kinder to the subject.

If you ever have to shoot real estate interiors try bouncing a small strobe off the wall behind you, rather than direct flash. It will stop “hot spots” and give you a nice overall fill light.

Just make sure your reflecting wall is white or you may get a colour cast.
