Project 365: Day 12 – The Light Behind

by matt on March 4, 2010

Today I decided to take a portrait of my wife.  For this photo I setup a Canon 580EXII in a shoot through umbrella directly behind her and set on full power.  To camera left I had a Canon 430EXII with a Lumiquest Softbox III attached.  This was positioned about 2 feet away and set on 1/4 power.  Both were triggered with Cactus V4’s.

I have to admit that I am enjoying my Project 365.  I find that as I go about my day I am framing things I see in my mind, planning photos that haven’t happened yet.  I try to always have a camera with me at all times, although as luck would have it I didn’t have one with me yesterday and saw a situation I wanted to photograph.  I was walking past a side street and as I looked down toward the end through a tunnel of parked cars I saw a delivery truck at then end with a big “Bud Light” written on it.  I instantly thought “There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s actually a Bud Light”.  Let that be a lesson to always have a camera with you.  This is precisely why I bought the Canon S90 so I could carry it with me everywhere.

I wonder what I will see tomorrow?  I know I will have my camera with me.
