Creative Light

As you may or may not already know, my main goal as a photographer is to learn how to light subjects up creatively. I think it's a new and fun way to bring some attention to my photos. It's not very easy stuff to do, either. Sometimes it's so hard to get the ideas "flowing" into your mind...it's almost like you're totally dull and unable to do anything creative...
I sure hope I'll get my brain in the right state of mind soon..until then, here's a old idea worked off in just a couple minutes :)


Soo, let's see it then. 2 flashes and that's it! :)
One flash is "in the book" - for lighting up her face and the wall, and the other is sitting in her lap, lighting up the face of the book - covered with paper to soften it up a bit. The whole exposure is only flash, so no ambient. I do this almost every time, except when I'm outside.

Dunno, I like to control my light, and with flashes it's easy like cherry pie :)

So, what do you think? Creative or not, good or bad, any questions maybe?

As always, big thanks goes to Nina for putting up with my little tests he he :)

Stvarno je fotka strava dobro ispala, Kako si dobio onako plavu pozadinu? Komplimenti i modelu stvarno je simpaticna ;-) Koji fotic koristis ako nije tajna?

Hvala Dreamer!
Plava pozadina je jednostavno plavi zid u sobi...znači djevojka sjedi na krevetu samo i čita/gleda :)

Koristim Canon 400D (nadam se uskoro prelazim na nešto jače/bolje) :)
