What a difference a day makes

In direct contrast to my last studio lifestyle shoot, today the sun was shining, and ISO ranged from 100-400 indoors with shutter speeds fast enough to work hand held without blurring. Images taken with the Nikon D750 and 85mm f/1.4 lens.

This scene is exactly the same setup as the one with the little boy in yesterday's post, but a huge difference in available light meant that today we had to cut some of the ambient light falling on the model to balance out the Christmas tree lights. To do this we put up a large, black "V" flat made by taping two 4' x 8' foamcore flats together and positioned it to keep the window light from falling in the area of the model. This removed enough ambient daylight that the ISO had to be boosted a couple of stops to 800.
