Birthday / Poker … ehm … Night
So my best friend’s birthday came … and i could not resist bringing my camera bag. We went out … we had a couple of laughs then back to his place were my first time poker player girlfriend took 2’nd place after the birthday boy.
The group shot was done with my 50mm and one flash shot into the overhead matte glass yellow ceiling, which added warmness to the subjects and separated them from the rather cold setting. It also gave the shot depth and placed the subjects better in the frame.
Gotta love that 50mm for the depth of field it created in this shot.
I also pulled off a good portrait for the birthday boy’s cat, called Chupa (suck in Spanish). Some retouchind was done to it, some sharpening and color balance (because nobody wants to see they white cat be yellow.
Hope y’all like’em !
