I was going through my old hard drive when I came across these old photos which were taken back in the summer of 2008, in Sweden. Decided to give them a bit of a tune up and post them here. All photos taken using my old Nikon D80 and the stock 18 -135mm lense
Today I almost smashed by coffee mug against the computer screen upon reading a preposterous article about how the iPhone is a better choice for professional photography. It would perhaps been a little forgiving if the article I was reading was from an online blog in North Korea, however to add to insult the article was published through Wired magazine.
I was actually not going to post these photos at first however decided otherwise. As I thought it would be interesting to show how much you can achieve by just using two speedlights in photography. These photos were taken while on a assignment and the goal was to capture people and their pets together in a homey environment. For this particular shoot I decided to use a soft box as the key light and an umbrella as the fill light.
