And the fears are back.  This time in a good way.  In the last post I shared some feelings.   On bad days those fears are a source of disappointments.  But on good days same reasons are a source of inspiration for the next thing.  A source to keep the fire going.

It’s one of those feelings when we were a child and couldn’t wait to go for that picnic trip next morning.  The excitement gave us sleepless night.  Same feeling when an idea comes in head and you can’t wait to see the results of the efforts.

The photo above required more efforts than I thought it would.  The idea was to create a simple levitation portrait.  I was on a ‘sick-leave’ but the cousins had a  busy schedule plus it had already started raining. So we had to move quickly.  His elder brother held flash just above the head from camera right with no diffusion. Not by choice as the time frame was too short for a setup and the incoming rain wasn’t helping.  Fired away a few shots and this was the result after spending a good hour on the system.

I didn’t do a great work in photoshop as I’m still new to it but I do think this is a nice by-product of the experimentation.  Hopefully you’ll see more coming.

Take care
