iso 400, 3sec, F5.6 ---- 6 shots.
I recorded 21 shots and used 6 of them. I had the camera mounted on a table tripod . To minimise vibration I started a shot with a remote switch and used the mirror lock up and timer. After studying testshots I selected F5.6 and a shuttertime of 3 seconds.
The use of a separate indirect flash for better illumination was disappointing. I couldn't get the right combination of good illumination at the front and the back. As well as that the facial expression looked too "frozen".
I therefore chose to use the shots without extra flash. As a result we moved during exposure and that's not turned out too bad at all. It gives a more expressive look.
The wwp text on the table was made with xara xtreme. It looks as if it is carved in the wood. A "cool" finishing touch !
