My daughter debuts as a DT model...

posted on 19th of january, 2010

I am very excited to see my six year old daughter's debut image get approved in DT. I have been self learning protrait and studio lighting in my makeshift home studio.

With a little cajoling, I could get my little one to pose for a few shots using a simple wireless flash setup. We had a good excuse to dress up in a new Indian dress, as it was Pongal, the south Indian harvest festival and a holiday.

The first image that I made it with a bona fide model release !

Hope to see a lot more featuring her, while I brush up my portraiture skills. Feedback and guidance is most welcome.
