A silhouette in warm tones

It’s funny what one can fish out from the photo archive sometimes. Absolutely by accident I came across the photos from my studio photo shoot 7 years ago. That was my one and only time I shot in a studio with all the fancy strobes and stuff. My wife’s friend who is a professional photographer now and was studying back then wanted to have a photo shoot with my wife. Out of the blue, I suggested to rent a studio for a couple of hours and she (friend) agreed. So basically I piggybacked into the studio for no particular reason but curiosity.

While most of the photos are either my wife’s friend work or family archive, I’ve found this picture to show. Being a “bad” frame as you can see because the flash didn’t fire, it came out as a silhouette in warm tones and now I kinda like it.

The funny thing I mentioned in the beginning is that while looking at those studio photos I realize what fun working in a studio can be. Since that occasion, I hardly ever thought of doing this again. Only in the context of film photography, but considering all the fuss with flash syncing and film speeds, and inability to try and check the settings, I’m not sure I’ll get there soon.

What’s your relationship with studio work?

Thanks for reading and watching!

Dragonfly

I’m not very skilled and keen on animal photography, and insects especially, but I just couldn’t resist the temptation when this dragonfly sat on a plant just 1 metre away from me! And as I was trying to take a shot extremely carefully and focusing manually, the beauty was just sitting there posing.

Does anyone happen to know what kind of dragonflies it is? Just curious what happened to be in my focus.
