It’s time for my usual review of the year. A long pause while I think about this. Well did anything actually happen? Methinks not. I only managed 2 shoots, admittedly with 2 very beautiful models. Results though were pretty run-of-the-mill. I plan certain poses and then when the model stands in front of the camera my mind goes blank. You would think after all these years of snapping nekkid young ladies I would have grown out of this but it seems not. C’est la vie.
While dipping into the archive and wondering about what to post I began to glance at the snaps I have taken with my Sony NEX-5N. I bought this as a sort of carry anywhere snapshooter but it hardly gets used because like most people I find my iPhone more convenient. When I do use the Sony I don’t tend to bother with the settings so the results can be a bit hit and miss, or if you want to be generous, interesting.
The first set were shot at some crazy high ISO using just the light from a window at the other side of the room. The second are an outside mix of snaps taken in diffused and direct sunlight by, you guessed it, the canal. For the final wet set we move back indoors using natural light but this time the model is standing closer to the window so the exposure settings are a bit more civilised.
