Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

7 February 2004

I think I don’t regret spending on electronic flashes. I had no idea my camera could make pictures so sharp. And I resized this one down so it could fit in the layout.

Making pictures with flashes is hard, though. As I was searching the web, I found out how professional studio flashes work: an embedded lamp illuminates the scene the same way the flash will (with much less intensity, of course), so that you have no surprise, you know exactly what you’re shooting. Whereas with those flashes… good thing I have a digital camera, or I couldn’t use them at all.

P.S. In case anyone wonders, those aren’t my eyes (mine are dark). I may post a few self-portraits through the week-end, if I have time and inspiration.

P.S. I forgot to thank Frédéric, whose prints made me realize that a simple digicam (well, a simple $1,000 camera) could make real sharp portraits, with distinct eyelashes and all. Great discovery for me.
