Inspirational Photo

Baby gnome alert!
I spotted this cute baby at my church’s harvest festival.
I think the addition of the binky really helps put this costume in great perspective.
I lit this scene with a diffused on-camera flash but slowed the shutter to 1/30 of a second to pick up some ambient light in the background.
Otherwise, my gnome would look like he was living in a cave.
Thus, you can see the large recreation vehicle in the background and a few people, too.
This technique works just about anywhere. For example, a large banquet room, a dark area and even outside at night.
Remember to lower your shutter speed to pick up any ambient light that might be present to keep the background from going completely black.
Be inspired!
