21/10/2012 ~ Roaarrr!!!!

Not content with dogs and giraffes I made the mistake of asking H&C Jnr what animal he would like me to make a while back ...


... a TIGER came back his answer.


Oh dear! Nonetheless I sought the help of Google which landed me at a site that told me how to make one but it still proved fairly difficult until finally I managed to make a complete animal with my last of countless orange balloons.


I managed to add a few stripes without bursting it and couldn't resist capturing my efforts for all to see ;).


This was photographed with a speedlight either side and slightly behind to enhance the translucent effect without adding too many highlights and I used a mixture of boxes and sheets of card to effectively barndoor the speedlights to protect the background and avoid flare.



Please feel free to provide constructive critique on the technical aspects of this photograph.
