First hand-drawn illustrations

posted on 23rd of october, 2011

Hi all,

Few months ago I bought an Intuos 4 M tablet. But as I haven't have much leisure time (everyday work + need to make jpg's from RAW's which queue was very, very long), it sat all the time in a drawer.

When I shoot on tripod, I always use manual focus in liveview mode active. This time the room was so dark that I couldn't see anything on the screen in liveview mode. Despite using autofocus and onboard flash for helping camera to focus, I took out a small flashlight (not a led one. Regula with yellowish tone) and pointed the light from the top to the subject. And when I saw the result in liveview, I decided just to stay on that lightening. The result came out totally different of that what had came out using onboard flash (i don't have wireless flash set up, however, i have one external...
