Sometime before midnight (whatever time zone you are in) this Sunday, 2 December 2018, post the best photo you have taken this week. Any subject, any style—just give us your best shot.

 

If you can, list your EXIF info and any special lighting setups you may have used.

Yikes! Where is everyone?

 

Well, I actually got my camera out this week. We did our annual Santa portraits for a community group. This is our third year doing it--we use a green screen and add digital backgrounds later. The backgrounds are not my work--we purchased them on Etsy. If we are invited again next year, we should probably change our setup a bit.

 

Anyhow, I caught a few shots of Santa before the kids arrived and threw in a fireplace background we had used last year.

And here's one of the kids with a new background:

Both images shot with the D810, Nikkor 24–70 lens, ISO 400, f/5, and 1/100. Camera was on a tripod triggered with remote. Key light in 50-inch softbox to camera right and fill in a smaller softbox camera left. Used three more continuous lights behind the set to light the green screen evenly.

Definitely not—we never object to latecomers in these threads. I was late myself. But it is time to get this week's thread going.

I didn't shoot anything except paid work this week.
