my {sweet} little guinea pig

i love this little boy!! i can always count on him to give me at least 5 minutes of camera time when i’m in the mood to try something new. it used to be 5 minutes was not even close to enough time to get 3 acceptable shots, but as i’m growing and learning, i’m getting more usable shots in a shorter amount of time. woohoo!!!

so, i finally splurged & got a 5-in-one reflector {haha, yup. splurged  14 dollars, k maybe i finally got up off the couch and grabbed my credit card }. although i’ve read a lot about reflecting and diffusing light, i still don’t really know what i’m doing, like everything else, i suppose it’s all about trial and error.  i do notice a subtle difference, esp in the eyes, which makes me happy.

as far as processing, i thought i’d obsess over work on b&w conversion. i like how these look, but still feel like i’m missing something! maybe if i walk away, uncross my eyes, i’ll be able to to see what needs adjusting.

if anyone has any fun tips on how to best use a reflector, please share 🙂
