Still Messing With Photography
It seems that to negate the graininess caused by the white flecks in his fur, simple diffusion of the flash doesn't work very well (I tried a few different methods to make the flash on the camera more diffuse). What is more inconvenient is that it seems that the best way to reduce the graininess is to use a lot of light, natural and otherwise. My next attempts at improving my light setup for general photography will be to use some of the external flashes I tend to use with my SLR camera (non-digital), and then to pick up a Firefly Electronics flashgun slave (so I can use a separate flash situated in a different position and aimed in a different direction to get better overall lighting), which is similar to one I played around with for some cave photography I did awhile back (still haven't been able to scan those pictures, though).
Alas. Tips or suggestions for my flash/lighting problems and for my photos in general are always welcome. :) Enjoy.
