Last week, we got ourselves a new couch! The first thing I asked myself when I saw this couch was "what sort of fun pictures could I take with this?" The first chance I had, out came the tripod, the flash, the remote triggers, the lenses, and the camera. The shots were all done with a bare flash bounced off the wall behind the camera. Overall, I pretty satisfied with my first attempt at such a picture. Next time, I'll make sure of two things:
- don't move the camera/steadier tripod
- don't use auto white balance
Interesting little factoid about this new couch: we didn't pay anything for it! In fact, a friend and I found it right outside our building one evening during one of our runs. I was really skeptical at first, but the guy at the concierge told us that the owners bought it and didn't want it after it sat in the corner of their apartment for a really long time. It was still in its original plastic covering! It was really a very lucky find.
