I am not particularly pleased with this one today.
This is me, in the morning, directly upon wake-up.
The technique I was going for today was to point the light at eye (bag) level. Then put the camera above the subject (me). This is supposed to get rid of any eye bags showing in photos. I chose the time for this experimental shoot for when I woke up because this is when my largest luggage, so to speak, shows up beneath my eyes.
Annnd...I didn't get it quite right. I realized after the session (and apparently I cannot find a Tupperware lid in my kitchen to save my life) that the light was not close enough to my face to wash out the edge of eye-bag-bulge.
It is also possible that the only technique to get rid of this at my age is photoshop.
LOL. I will never give in to that. :-)
The next photo below shows the light a little closer, but still not really pleasing. The light is so bright and white that unless I was going for a particular, artful look, this would not abide.
This will take a bit more research and practice.
Shoot on my friends!
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
