Grega's photoshoot

My friend Grega needed some portrait photos, so we made a mini photoshoot a few days ago. First we tried to do a couple of pictures at his house but those didn't came out as nice as I would like them to. So we went outside and shoot by the Škofja Loka castle here in my hometown. It turned out to be a nice location in the end. Here are just a few of many pictures we took.

Grega is a badminton player so we did some pictures with his prop - the racquet. We didn't have any stylists or make-up artists for this shoot. Although I could always use one. So if someone might be interested in doing make-ups on my shoots just let me know ;)

About the shot:

- Camera: Canon EOS 400D
- Exposure: 0.013 sec (1/80)
- Aperture: f/4.5
- Focal length: 50mm
- ISO: 100
- Flash: Flash Fired (Canon Speedlite 580EX II)
- Post-processing software: Adobe Photoshop CS2
- Date taken: 12.12.2007

*I used the same settings on all of the pictures as I was shooting in manual mode and with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens.

It was hard to shoot these pictures because of the cold that we have here right now. My hands were nearly frozen most of the time and my eyes were watery because of the cold, so looking through the viewfinder and assessing if the subject was in focus or not was a hard thing to do. It was a cloudy day with a few tiny drops of rain that almost ended our photoshoot before it even started. But the raindrops turned out to be moderate so we were able to pull it off.

A little bit of post-processing was done in Photoshop.
