For the more nervous types I wear this disguise. Inexpensive and effective. I've had several birds(not Kingfishers) land on my head while under the drape.

Thanks. Bass Pro Shoppe sells the material. I like the type that has the leaf hole cut outs for ventilation and being able to see out. I have a second layer of a screen type camp material that isn't opaque enough, thus the under layer of the thicker material. I need to redo the drape, make some improvements. This is nice but expensive, don't like not being able to see behind me though. I like to stay aware of my surroundings.

Thank you, I've been shooting from this set up for quite a few years. The birds have been scarce this fall, hoping winter improves.

I had the same problem as you in regards to WB in a shoot with my daughter. Pink BG, pink tutu, pink cake. It was a nightmare. Never again. Do yourself the favor, get a gray card and if you can swing it, a light meter. The 2 best things you could get for yourself, especially if your shooting in light that is always changing. For the record, I think the photos above are properly lit, but I do see the orange cast, especially in the areas nearest the pumpkin. All the best.

I picked up an expodisc for custom white balance for portrait work and pictures of my baby girl in her room. AWB had no idea what to do with the coral colored walls and teal rug.

I've also been using an expodisc and really like it. I think it takes some practice and getting used to, but it's pretty easy to just pop on for custom WB, especially for outdoor locations.

Basically my Speedlite pointed at the book at it's lowest setting. Thought this might be a great Christmas card idea for those of you with kids. Just have them hold the book, put the flash in their lap pointed at the book, put the flash at it's lowest setting (mine was at 1/128), take the picture and edit accordingly in your favorite photo editor.

I didn't have a live person to try this with so I used my daughters Valentine bear as my model. :)

Best setup would be have your child(ren) sitting in a bed under covers, put the flash in their lap and face the flash at the book while they're holding the book.

I've heard people using a lower powered lighting source like a flash light or even a balled up roll of white Christmas lights.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Nice edit and color grading. If you used lightroom, what was your settings. Thanks.
