Day 51. August 28, 2010. Had a fun time this morning taking some "semi-professional" shots of a friend at Stanford's CCRMA. Things I learned: (1) Blond hair is extremely reflective and will quickly blow out your highlights if you're not careful with your lighting. (2) Studio lighting controls at CCRMA are the most unintuitive things ever. (3) I need a boom for my light stand. and (4) Too much of a catchlight makes your subject look like an anime character.
This is in CCRMA's listening room, which is perhaps the most perfectly designed room for audio playback ever.
