First, I know I haven't been on top of threads here over the past few days. Sorry about that, just have been super busy. Was supposed to do an adult shoot today but the weather blew that for me. Not sure when that will happen. And the painter loved my portfolio ... but they just had pictures done a couple of weeks ago. They want family photos but not for a few months. So I need to move on to someone else to propose a barter with. So that's a quick update.
I'm taking this little girl's 4 year portraits tomorrow. She's my daughter's BFF, and she's just a cute little stinker. This is my first time using this pink background (set it up for today, and she wanted me to take pictures immediately - but the real shoot is tomorrow). I used my gray card because I wanted the WB to be right, but I'm seeing a lot of pink on her face. I'm already committed to the pink (her mom likes it, and it totally agrees with her personality). But I'm wondering if I'll be dealing with casts ...
My plan is to pick up 4 balloons - two pink and two white - to use as part of the session. I'm shooting with all natural light. I'm also going to pull her farther from the background - it's a velour and I really don't think I want the texture showing so much.
The hard part is getting her to look at me ... funny kid!
