So, what happens when you have a screaming kid and it’s time for their first taste of solid foods? Sure, you tell your husband to set up his camera gear and get really nice photos…. Did we mention that it was pitch black out and we only have “mood lighting” in the house? How the hell am I going to get this right with such horrid light conditions? AMIRITE!?
Thankfully, I had a grip full of AA batteries charged and enough SB900′s to light the dark side of the moon. Took me about 3-4 minutes to set up a 3 light configuration. 2 bare SB900′s left and right to Max, controlled via Nikon’s CLS with a hot shoe’d diffused SB900 for fill and set to master.
Took a few test shots to come up with a decently stylized version of what you see here, minimal photoshopping done here. Bump in contrast and sharpening is about it.
