During the previous setup (Table Top), we finished exposing 10 rolls of film (my film limit) but continued the sitting using the digital camera. So here, on this page, I present my first setup totally recorded with a digital camera.
Jessica's boyfriend was a great help. I had to get into the shower, and he helped to maneuver the medium soft box to cover the opening to the shower; he then was outside the shower to flip the appropriate switches on the strobe power pack & to turn on and off room lights as needed. Earlier on in this sitting, I ragged about single light source images, and this is a single light source (the medium soft box), but it provided an even, semi-directional light, and we didn't have shadowed areas of Jessica's figure disappearing into other shadows (which is the part about single light source images that I don't like).
My digital camera's zoom lens is set at its widest angle, which is causing a little distortion. Can't be helped -- the steamroom, where we were, is large, but I can't make it larger.
This image, below, is my favorite from this setup:
Another interesting thing about the digital camera is that you don't have to put your head behind the camera to look through its viewfinder -- you can use it's little LCD screen to get different angles & perspectives. I'm getting older, and I'm losing flexibility -- it's difficult for me to get down to & up from the floor often, but with the LCD screen, I can position the camera at different angles without difficulty. I should do that more.
that's it. I hope you've enjoyed meeting Jessica as much as I
did. Let me know what you think. When you are done
