If you’ve never experienced the wonders of the Bristol Balloon Fiesta then you really have missed out on a treat. This annual free extravaganza is a wonder to behold from its early start (6.30am) where you get the wonders of a hundred+ balloon’s all inflating and setting of in the morning mist, to the amazing Night Glow at the closing of 2 of the 4 day show.

After the initial phot session with my better half, LJ. I decided it was time to give it another go with some new equipment I’d purchased recently.
I spent a little time experimenting with some product photography, using a simple set up of natural lighting from behind and camera right as well as a gold/silver reflector to bounce a little light back into the image.
A quick photography session of my lovely girlfriend, LJ, to test out lighting a subject with a single light and reflector.
The photograph was taken using a single Nikon SB600 through a softbox and a large gold reflector was used to bounce light back onto the subject and avoid some harsh shadows. The photographs were shot using a Nikon D300 and a Sigma 150mm F2.8 macro lens.
