Close Encounters

By malum
Following on from yesterday's upload, while I had the lights out I thought I'd see if i could get the kids to do a little more posing:
Strobe and a fan in the cupboard and another outside to my left for a tiny bit of fill light.
Two children giving me the least possible amount of their time that they can get away with.
Rays of light added with Mystical Lighting plugin

Great set up. They do look as if they're enjoying themselves. A great one for the album.

Very well executed. They look a little too happy for it to convey any sense of fear, but maybe it is a close encounter of a fun sort. I like it.

Wonderful! I like the two different expressions, and the fan has worked really well - it's given the photo that extra element that goes brilliantly with the rays of light.
