Q: How and from where to prepare for UPSC essays?

A: Do you know?

I got a new wireless lighting setup for my studio and wanted to test them out but Geronimo was the only live thing there. I asked him if he would model for me but he said he was on break. I then tried to use his stuffed monkey but Geronimo said that was a violation of Union Rules and that he was supposed to be the top model. He practically climbed my leg to pose for me. I think the lights are working pretty well.

You can tell what type of lighting is used by looking at the catchlights. Round circles are umbrellas. Squares are softboxes. Tiny dots are flash. You can often tell from which direction the light comes from too. In this case the main came from his right and I used a fill on the left.

Thank you so much Billy for spotlighting my sweet baby.

In the My Beloved photo essay.

    Yours is great Betty but the lighting was different using your flash. Front lighting tends to make things boring and flat so yours came out beautifully.
