My Super Hero

I couldn't decide which of these I liked better so I'm posting two. Once I saw the theme I couldn't get this idea out of my head- so there was no getting around my "no people" rule this time.
Which one's better? You decide:

Both taken with bounced flash. ISO 320, 1/200, 2.8

More info on your set up, please! :)

These are fantastic! I love the stark contrast of the white-white walls and the bright colors of your little super hero. Any other tips on how we can re-create this?

The second one is my pick!! I love the bouce and I like the bright colors against the white walls. Good job with the bounced flash to eliminate shadows. So fun!!

I love the first one. I like the patterns and colors all together. It looks busy, but at the same time, not an unflattering busy. The composition of that first one is so nice! Good job

Thanks ladies!

It was really simple set-up. I had my flash bouncing off the ceiling (which is white). He was on his bed jumping in the series. On the first one I was sitting on a ottoman and in the second one I was on the ground. I shoot Raw so I adjusted my WB and did little tweaks in ACR. Then I ran "Oh, Snap" and "Slice It Like A Ninja" (TRA actions) in PS.

I go back and forth... but I think I like the 2nd one a teeny bit better. His eyes looking right at you make the picture, I think! I LOVE them! Very cute!

Blake said...

Oh I love them both!! I can't decide!

I love the white on white and everything else! Just great. Wouldn't change a thing.

Carly Carlson said...

slice like a ninja is a personal fave as well, you go girl!

I like both photos, but the top one is a contest winner! Looks like you were using more of the 3rds law on the top.

I love both, but the second one is my favorite. Great job, as always!!!
Question for ya, I want to by a flash eventually, which one(s) do you have, and like the best?

I like the second one, AMAZING!

AprilF said...

LeAnn- I have the SB800- for Nikon. It's really great- Nikon has the best flash system!

I think I liked the first one because it's more "Artsy" looking and the second one because it's more fun.
