Lighting class assignment (small flash) part 2 – interior.
The groans were palpable as this part of the assignment was called out as it meant preparing a staged setting. Well, you’ll just have to clean up and stage a little was the response.
The timing was perfect as I had already agreed to shoot the interior of Peggy Kelly’s B&B in Greely. This saved me from having to clean and stage my own place. The basement area even has an exercise room with sauna.
This is one of several rooms available. The best part of this kind of shoot is disposing of the evidence once you’re done. For this, the flash was bounced off the corner of the room with Auto White Balance set.
This plant was prepared from a cutting 27 years ago for Cassandra by her grandmother. Since then it has survived several mishaps. It’s had someone fall on it (breaking some of the branches), left out too late in the fall & been frostbitten twice and vandalized by cutting and apparent poisoning (what’s with that).
The plant has survived all of this and has scrawny branches sparsely populated by leaves and puts out the most beautiful flowers. The flowers don’t last long. This picture was taken yesterday for today’s image since, as I suspected, it had started to wither by today.
