Yesterday's Daily Chuck.
And God said "Let there be light!"and there was light!
Actually, The Bro lent me his spotlights. Holy MOLY! I cranked up just one of them and it lit up my dungeon of a chocolate painted town home! Now, I only used one this time, but I need to add the other one so the shadow isn't so harsh (I believe that's called a fill?)...learning as I go don'cha know;)
Here's what I know now. I shot this on F-3.5 setting...My lens has a macro option (that's pretty cool). There is a little silver pin, and when I push it in and crank it around to "M-105" I can get all up in Smokey's face...and focus. I believe progress is being made.
In case you are wondering how Mr. Smokes is weathering the storm that is the Smokey Chuck Project...here he is yawning during the shoot. I don't think it has disrupted his sleep schedule...much;)Oh, and how old is Mr. Grumpus...10. It is not clear to me that the years are showing:/
