Photo Details

  • Title: Sweet Dreams
  • State/Province/Region (required): Virginia
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Petersburg
  • Description: My, at the time, 14 month old son. he fell asleep on the couch, and we carefully moved him to his chair. The lamp, just the right size for him, is an end table lamp. the footrest is actually a cloth basket.
  • Brief Directions: very simple one light setup. taken with a Canon 5D II and 50mm f/1.2L lens. ISO 100 1/200 shutter speed f/4.5 white balance was set to cloudy to give a nice warm glow. The gridded 22″ beauty dish was placed directly above with a 580 EX II @ 1/2 power, triggered with Phottix Odins in manual mode. the grid did a wonderful job of putting the light right where I needed it. the only post processing that was done was a little bit of sharpening and a little vignette to complete the mood.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Gear: 5D II, 50mm f/1.2L, 580 EX II speedlite, Phottix Odin trigger set, 22" FotoDiox Beauty Dish, light stand
