Some time ago I was asking some questions in the lighting forum (Pet portraits - help with lighting equipment ) about lighting equipment, obviously. Now I wanted to share the results. Oh, and I hope I'm in the correct forum for this. I'm not posting that often. As stated in the other thread, this is my first time in a "studio" environment, well, my bedroom, with some makeshift setup. I used my Oly E-M5II, 45mm 1.8, Godox X1To, TT350o, 80cm square foldable softbox, bowens mount, mounted to an old tripod. As background I used 2 carpets I had lying around. All shots hand held, manual, with not too much care about camera settings or perfectionism... I was busy enough with flash stuff. And I had to do this in reasonable time because I don't want to stress my bunnies too much. But they were surprisingly relaxed regarding the flash. Some notes for the future: - Get a proper background, we searched a lot around the house for what to use. - Get something to put the background onto a wall, or the ceiling. - Have more space for your equipment. I basically had one spot between bed and wall to put my lighting up. - The softbox on a tripod thingy worked pretty well, but yes, it takes up a lot of space. - Do more testshots with a plushie and get camera settings right. Pictures are edited with LR Classic and cleaned up a bit with Affinity Photo. Enough said... Pictures!

We got him from a shelter, too. They found him in a box in the woods, somebody obviously dumped him there. There was a second bunny with him, but they weren't able to find it, sadly.

They mentioned he was about 4 years old maximum when we got him. Our vet said 6-8 years may be closer. Well, he behaves like a grumpy old man, so, yes, the vet may be right. His eyesight isn't very well (cloudy eye visible on the first pic), he runs against obstacles from time to time. Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) More cleaning. The shelter got those two because of "not interesting anymore for the kids", so we picked them up. Those nuts btw helped a lot with keeping them entertained.

For a first time doing staged pictures and using flash, I'm pretty pleased with the result, but I should experiment with artificial lighting way more. Any tips, hints, constructive criticism are welcome. (On a note: Yes, the stories on how I got the gang sound pretty sad but they are quite common. If you would love to adopt some fluffy-pawed weirdos like those, contact your local shelter instead of buying them from a breeder. There's always somebunny in need.) No bunnies were harmed in the production of these pictures! About seven hazelnuts unfortunately died.
