There's More Than One Way to Wash a Dog
In case you were wondering about the title of this blog it has to do with there is more than one way to skin a cat. To be precise it means that there is more than one way to do something and some are better than others. I figured it would be better to call it, "There is More Than One Way to Wash a Dog, than the other choice of, "There is More Than One way to Skin a Cat", which many people would find offensive especially the cat lovers amongst us. Last night I lay in bed thinking of the soap bubble photography I had done that morning and how challenging it had been to get a good consistent image. Many of the images were unusable due to a bright specular light that had to be cropped out.To get rid of a specular light you need to have a larger light source close to the subject. I had been using a speedlight flash shot through a piece of white foamcore. As I lay there I thought "What really I needed was a larger light source!". This morning I grabbed a monolight studio flash and a large rectangular soft box. I placed it about eight inches above the soap bubble. As soon as I flashed the first image I knew I was onto something good. i stopped the lens down and dropped the ISO. I was immediately rewarded with some really nice images. When one way doesn't work try another! Remember there is more than one way to skin Err wash a dog. God's love and blessings upon your day, chris #TeamCanon, #WithMyTamron All of the images images were created with a Canon EOS 7D MkII camera with a Tamron 180mm macro lens. Lighting was provided by a Alien Bees 1660 monolight studio flash fitted with a 2' x 4' soft box. The camera settings used were Manual mode, ISO 200, F 20.0 at 1/20th of a sec.
