Challenge: Self Portrait In A Crowd (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II

This is my family (plus one). The "kids" all went to play tennis and I set it all up on the front porch for when they returned since it was great light... nice and bright and sunny. Well... it got dark and they still weren't home.
I brought out lights. Well all know I know nothing about lighting... so here we are.

I told them if they wanted the dinner I had all ready for them and waiting, that they had to come pose for me. They all did, quite cheerfully... actually! Good folks.

THANKS for the votes! I'm SOOoooo happy with my ribbon!! Three in a row! I've only had two in a row once (over three years ago)!

It's a good week in Lydiaville!! :D

As always - something fun and creative!

This is a step away from being a really good image. Love the idea, but soooo wish you couldn't see the camera. Suppose you could have hid it under an arm, or peaking out of someone's shirt and remote triggered it. And a bit more contrast around the perimeter I think would have helped.

That said, it's one of the more creative images posted and I really like it.

Nice fun concept.

It looks like you used a lot of different light sources and have managed them all very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2013 09:52:49 PM
Great concept. Not sure how I feel about the highlights. Maybe the shouldn't be blown... Maybe they keep my eye where it belongs...?
Still, love the image
