Mohammadpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh
natural light is by far the best light…. but unfortunately, I don’t always get the opportunity to use natural light; at least, not on weekdays by any means…. so, practically weekends become my only friend when it comes to using natural light….
when it comes to natural light, the possibilities are huge…. you can also mix daylight with artificial lights to create a different kinds of environ…. your control of light increases dramatically when you can mix a bit of fill-light into it… that said, I thought why not keep daylight in the background and overexpose…. that can give a dreamy kind of look to the images with an abundance of light illuminating the place… creating that kind of feel with artificial lights would’ve required a lot of effort….. and needless to say, a lotta lighting equipment….. so, here, I just used a Lastolite 24″ Ezybox Hotshoe softbox as fill light and let the background take its shape using shutter speed (1/15sec) and a bit of ISO (800)….
but I also wanted to document what it requires to finish a meal of Lamisa…. its true that she requires many types of incentives for that effort, so, I can at least try to show at least some of them….. one of her favourite toys is an old remote keyboard of mine…. its more than 10 years old, but its not that old to Lamisa…. thank God that she still thinks its her “laptop”!!….. this perception is still keeping my netbook alive!! not sure how long we can feed that into her mind…. and there is the TV…. its one of the best tools to help during her meals…. well, a lotta people say its not good to let children get consumed by TV, but there’s hardly any options left when babies are born watching all the latest gizmos around…..
all the pics were made using similar settings mentioned above with Lastolite 24″ softbox and YN-560 flash triggered by Elinchrom Skyport radio trigger….
more to come soon…… more backlogs need to be cleared!!
