Today I had to take some pictures for work, I defaulted to just sticking the trophies that I had to take pictures of up against the wall and snapping a shot.
I actually had the forthought to stick my SB-600 on the camera and point it at the roof, but that was pretty bland; I knew it was going to be, but I wasn’t enganged at that point. I just didn’t care because there’s nowhere to take pictures at the arena that lends itself to taking pictures. It’s all blue cinderblocks and just no good.
Yeah that was pretty lousy and I was dissapointed, so I fgured I could do better with just a little effort, so after some playing around with flash angles and being dissapointed with the shadows on the walls or the ugly flares I decided to stick the flash behind the trophies to create some interest.
It’s still not good, look at that aweful wall, and I accidently focused on the wall instead of the trophies (woops) but it’s not bad. It’s okay though because it’ll only be like 300px on the site when it’s done.
