There’s a steep field near us on which Wilf loves to do ‘Zoomies’, which is a term for when dogs run at top speed in largish circles because they’re happy, apparently. Wilf does these a lot, so I guess this must be a good thing.

Maybe it’s me (actually this is me but you know what I mean) but I think there’s a connection between the lockdown and bubbles since the former effectively put most of us in the latter.
…although to be honest if it had started moving about under it’s own volition it would have freaked me out a bit!
To be honest, I thought I’d blocked the punch but it seems that I was too quick for me. Then again I thought I could hit the target; I just had to avoid giving me any chance to block.
There was a deep seated, long standing grudge. We knew each other well. It was a hard fought match. I seemed to know every move that my opponent made even before he made it. He seemed to know mine. It was almost as if we could read each other minds – spooky!
This was taken on a black acrylic board with a white one as the background. Since the bottle was blue I lit the shot using a flashgun with blue gel to the left of the camera. I placed a silver reflector opposite the flashgun to lift the shadows on the right hand side.
In seven previous posts I’ve gone through different lighting techniques for portraits. For the final post in this series I thought I’d post the seven images together so that you can more easily see the differences between them. This may seem a good idea but the downside is that they’re all of me. That’s lockdown for you!
The penultimate in my series of portrait lighting techniques. As usual this shot is straight out of camera and it’s in black and white so you can see the light pattern more clearly.

The latest in my series of portrait lighting techniques. You’ve got me again (un retouched). This shot is straight out of camera. It’s in black and white so you can see the light pattern more clearly.
Another in my series of lighting techniques which may be useful if you need a DIY headshot given that most of us are in lockdown. You’ve got me again (un retouched). This shot is straight out of camera. It’s in black and white so you can see the light pattern more clearly.
Another of my ‘why not try this at home’ posts. You’ll need a darkish room as you’ll be lighting the shot with flash only (oh! And you’ll need an external flashgun so you can control the power output – from about £26 on Amazon if you don’t already have one).
