Day 72 – Red Nose Day

Happy Red Nose Day – my teens wanted new photos taken for their driving licenses (scary stuff) – so the perfect opportunity to practice some simple portraits that fit the requirements of the DVLA… and alongside it to have some fun…

These are the fun shots

  • Nifty 50 – F8
  • Flash bounced on the ceiling
  • Reflector under the chin
  • Remote release… so we could take our own pictures
  • Put together in Photoshop.
ISO 125, F8, 1/200 sec - Manual mode.

For a sensible passport/driving license picture there is a great template which you can download from NicMyers which gives you the guidelines for positioning the photograph correctly and is really helpful.
