Confession time: I did not learn anything new about my camera or the lights. Well, I learned one thing: if firing into a wall, stand close to the same wall for better light :) This is shot with an on-camera native strobe in ETTL mode firing into a white painted closet door with a foamcore board on the other side for some bounce fill. Foam core is camera right, of course. The pinprick catchlight in my eyes is from an LED flashlight I use to help the camera focus in the dark. The dark, as we have already discussed two days ago, is to avoid mixed color light.
The main reason I took the photo -- other than to keep the new streak alive -- is to see how the new glasses photograph. I think I like this pair better than yesterday's. What do you think?
I keep playing with Lightroom's profiles and a new crop of presets, expanded and rearranged. This uses the Adobe Portrait profile as the baseline for no better reason than it has the word "portrait" in it. I think it's lower contrast compared to Adobe Color. On top of that, I applied the PL05 preset from the Portraits: Light Skin collection. I am not sure what "Light Skin" is supposed to mean. Is it A)for people with light skin, B)mean to make skin lighter or C)lightly corrects the skin?
