The Pink Room


The Pink Room, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

The Strobist group had a project to do an interior photograph. This is the result. Compared to some of the others, it's not terribly dramatic, but it was fun to do. And since I screwed up one of the rules (I forgot to do the thumb thing), I won't be entering anyway.

This is our guest room and aside from the fact that it required the least "getting ready", it also had the mural which I wanted to highlight. We have several of them in the house by Lisa Dapas. If you're out there, Lisa...still enjoying them.

Lighting information: SB600 in lamp with yellow gel, SB600 on stand camera left in corner of room bounced off ceiling, SB600 on stand camera left (close) skipping off ceiling to illuminate the mural. Triggered by CLS from non-firing SB800 on camera. Various levels of power / manual.
