Blarney photo shoot: making-of

I already posted the end result on Facebook and here http://www.mariannadeyneko.com/2012/04/08/blarney-photo-shoot-off-camera-flash-interfit-softbox/ so I wanted to post a really fun photo from “behind the scenes”.

That was an incredibly fun day, I invited my friends to the Blarney park to test my new Interfit softbox and off camera flash (I have Canon Speedlite 430ex II).

Blarney is an ideal place for that, there is a huge park with caves and stones and lawns and trees and it offers all kinds of scenery and lighting to use in shots.

That was a really interesting experience, one thing I realized for sure – 3m cable is a nonsense and I need a wireless flash trigger )
Also giving commands to the models is a huge part of the deal, and this is something to learn as well.
And bringing a small tourist chair for my model was a very wise decision of mine. Sticky tape was needed as well, and I was prepared.

I have a lot of ideas for the future shoots, and it’s a very unusual feeling that I can’t start with them when I want, I kinda need people for that. I am used to waking up at 8 and arranging a photo shoot for a cupcake, for example, but people don’t work like that unfortunately (

But more to come, I think my models liked this experience as well, so I am very much excited )

    “Sticky tape was needed as well, and I was prepared.”

    Is that to tape their necks to the chair so they don’t fall over asleep while waiting for you to finish taking the 3,000 photos? :D

    Nice results ^^

      Thanks )
      We used a sticky tape to move the tree branches away from the scene, since we didn’t move to break them.

      And I didn’t take 3000 photos, maybe 400 tops! )

      Haha, after the walk we had I heard him saying something like “no way in hell I’m ever doing it again” but maybe I misheard and he actually meant “I just loved to be your assistant, Marianna!” ))
