Challenge: Loud (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Date: Jun 9, 2015
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/250
Date Uploaded: Jun 9, 2015

Two of my lovely daughters trying out their modeling skills for me. No ear drums were injured in the making of this photo!

We had to stop before I was really happy with the photos since my youngest said her mouth was hurting from opening it so wide to pretend to the scream. Funny thing, it never seems to hurt when she screams for real ;)

Lighting: Two umbrellas with speedlights, camera left and right about 45 degrees.
Hair: My wife was using the removable motor from my shopvac, which is a pretty powerful blower (you can use it as a leaf blower). The blower was just out of frame, low at camera left in front of the screamer so it wouldn't affect her hair.

Fairly simple processing.

Woohoo! My first ribbon, a blue at that and a new PB that destroys my previous by over .7. I have to say, I have been watching this one all week, I couldn't believe how great it was doing.

I added some details to explain how I did it.

There are a few screaming kids. This one outshines the rest. Nicely done.

Ha! I hear this! I like the loud... but the background image noise... especially on the left is a bit distracting.

The girls did a great job for you! LOL!

Nice! Brilliant use of the fan, love it.

Gets a 10 from me, I can almost feel the anger coming from the smaller child trying to be heard. The expression and movement in the hair if the older girl is brilliant and overall this image resonates with me to greater depths than the rest.
