My first indoor portrait...naturally I had no idea what I was doing. Not sure if I was supposed to come up with a way to have reduced the reflections. I pretty much piled all the movable lights I could find into a sunlit room and after it was still too dark, bounced a flash at 1/16 off of the cieling. In between Freja knocking my setup over (the room's kinda small) and then sitting still for all of about 5 seconds, I didn't have a whole lot of time for experimentation. Luckily she was kind enough to give me 1 of her trademark expressions. Not exactly the one I was looking for, but funny none the less. Keep up the good work Freja...the biscuit's in the mail.

Post Process:
Cloned out shadows from hat and banner and lampshade prong that was sticking out from trying to tilt the lampshade and then forgetting about it.

Ha! The only one left "stand up" sober! It's got to be used as a birthday card cover shot...for sure!

Nice conept. I'm not sure if it's intentional, but the horizon is tilted in this photograph.
