Agreed - I really like #1 exactly as it is but I'm a sucker for environment shots so they're both really eye-catching... I wonder (and please don't take this as any kind of criticism, just trying to learn) what #2 would have looked like without the alcove on the left being so bright - my eyes wanted to spend a little too much time there...
Could I also ask if this technique (two shots of the same scene, moving lights and people in/out of frame) is something you usually execute with a tripod or not? I'm assuming it's not that difficult...Show more →
The first shot was done with the camera on a tripod for two reasons. The main one being that I knew I would have to clone out my assistant so I needed a "clean" shot of the house without her in it. The second reason was since I was using video lights, I needed a longer shutter speed so a tripod was necessary.
The second shot was done using flash so I didn't need a tripod.
