Default Bored to start 2018

I started New Year's Day 2018 bored. So I set up the home studio and did what I swore I never would. I took a self portrait.

Strobist: Flashpoint Xplor600 in 47" Ocotobox camera left and high. LP160 camera right and high in a 24" soft box. A White reflector on my lap. LP160 behind as rim with a 7 inch reflector and a grid. Behind was an LP160 with a red gel to give a touch of color to the black background. Fired with Xplor and Yuongno triggers.

Shot with my D500 and Tamron 70-200

Things I learned:
  • Don't use a cheap disposable razor on your neck minutes you shoot.
  • Should have flipped the reflector over the silver side to fill in under my eyes a bit more.
  • Could have had the octobox and softbox more in line with the camera axis
  • I need to spend more time with Photoshop editing images. I have used Corel PSP for years and upgraded late in 2017.
