We have been taking photos of our daughter at every month for the first twelve months. Over Christmas, I acquired a really cheap fixed lighting set, which I believe is for video, but decided to use it as some fill lighting for our daughter’s 11 month old pictures.
I used one of the lights facing her on the left, and had my strobe positioned overhead just off to the right. It worked really well, and among all the photos, one random one became my favorite the instant I saw it. Has a very artsy vibe, like it could be hung in an art gallery.
As my sister titled it: “Baby with Rattle, 2018”
