This post is a continuation from yesterday’s photo shoot with my sister, Sophia’s Nikon D3000. Some of the golden tips of this mini Taj Mahal didn’t make it to my parents’ home …
I wanted a green background, i.e. my mom’s plants (she loves them to bits). But the sun was setting in the wrong direction, right in front of my lens. I suggested the plants to be moved on the opposite side of the balcony. Mom agreed, granted I move all of her plants myself and put them back to exactly where they were … myself. But that’s way too much work for a photographer, of course, so I decided on doing something easier.
I used mom’s purple towel as a backdrop, put one of her chairs in the balcony, placed the Nikon box on top of it, then covered it up with her green face towel. The box was for additional height, since I still haven’t mastered the art of crouching for more than a few minutes.
The wind was pretty strong that day, and it almost blew my mom’s face towel off from the 15th floor balcony. This was happening whilst I was bringing the Eiffel Tower inside to get the next subject out to shoot.
The photo shoot was tiring because of all the walking and bending involved. But it was fun!
Nikon D3000 is amazing!
I think I left mom’s chair outside.
