365 Project - Day 250 - Colors

Day 250

Just love the colors on my daughters pinwheel and how a little side-lighting can bring them out. I actually tried to use my mobile phone to light this image, but at the setting I wanted to make the background black, the phone wasn't bright enough. Instead, I attached the flash to the camera using a OC-E3 sync cable, then positioned the flash at the cameras upper right almost parallel with the pinwheel. I played with different heights to get the look I liked the most. And actually didn't do much post-production, got it right in camera and then added the border & logo. :)


Ja mata,

Brian, I really love this shot. To me it feels almost dreamlike with the back ground and the stick is hidden and it just seems like its floating.

Great capture
