Well now that I have the balance of my lights…the way I like them, and positioned where I like…them, I'm going to play with the aperture a little bit,…to control how bright or dark that gray background is.…And, with Valerie, she's very fair skinned, so I have a lot of reflection.…So let me try a couple of different…aperture settings, and see how it effects my image.…So as you see as I played around with the different apertures.…As I made it really high as I got to 11…it really kind of made it dark and didn't like that.…And so I dialed it back down and I found that 6.7 worked really well for me.…I, I like the way the image looks.…
I don't have to do that much…post-production work and that makes me really happy.…
