Both of these pictures above were taken with no flash. In both instances, I knew there was not enough light (it was dark outside when I took both of these) but I didn't want to turn on my flash. And look, I missed the moment.
This picture was taken in the tub with the flash (as were these). I do like how blue it makes here eyes look but in my opinion, it gives her the "deer in the headlights" look. Which I'm not a fan of. I want some professional looking, anatomically correct, bathtub pictures...which you can't get with a flash.
These were taken in the tub with my Lightscoop. Look at that water just standing still! I've never gotten a tub picture even close to these. And it was my first time! It can only get better from here, right? That top one even looks like there may be a window in the room! And I can promise you, there isn't.
The best thing I've noticed about the Lightscoop so far is that you can still catch that moment but then fix it with a little post processing. On the 3 pictures above, the color is still off and I don't know enough about Lightroom to fix it. So...I'll let you in on a little secret. What do you do when you mess up the color and can't get everything fixed just right? Make them Black and White. And now you have some professional looking, anatomically correct, bathtub pictures...that you can't get with a flash. Unfortunately, they still don't compare to natural light. But at least I didn't miss the moment. I am going to a Snapshop in May and I'm hoping she can give me a little insight to the nasty color that I'm still getting with my lightscoop. She probably knows nothing about Lightscoops but I'm hoping to learn more about my camera, its settings, and how to work it in low-light situations. For now, I'll just be thankful that I have my Lightscoop and Lightroom when the baby comes.
