I digress, back to the light. The touch of light kissing the egg reflected from Daisy's white patch has made me love this accidental shot. I was experimenting, but it taught me how valuable a cheap reflector, white Tee Shirt or sheet can be when light is precious. Going back to yesterday's morning post, when I was posing my wife and daughter for the First Bottle shot, I tried to get as much white from the hospital blanket and spread out the white drip cloth to get as much surface as possible to reflect the window light back toward my daughter's face. White "high test" Simulac as we called it helped too. White reflects the whole color spectrum, while black absorbs, like a light diaper. (sorry, next thing you know I'll be talking about Wee Pee's, which any Preemie parent will know what I'm talking about!) So my advice for today is once you "See the Light", start looking for ways to not only use it, but enhance and modify it.
