Hi this is one of my experimental shot, I was thinking to shoot some thing like studio photography BUT have no tool like them BUT I keep thinking how to do it without any cost, hehehehe I did it successfully,
This is one shot that just let you know that no Flash fired in my coming shot don't be amaze because this is the technique I used, let me define,

tools I used for my shots are:
white cloth, pillow, A shoe, dark room, small piece of mirror and my Canon 10D,

First I put the white cloth on the pillow and just fixed Jalil to site their because he is only 5 1/2 months he cannot site and then I put the shoe on the top of curtain to let the narrow light in the dark room and then I put the mirror on the floor where light was touching floor and adjust the direction near his face, as you can see in the picture and just start shooting his too many portraits.

this shot is for explaining my experiment,
Hope you like my experimental technique.

Thanks for visiting...

Hi Javed,

lovely photo and excellent note! It's nice to see you can be creative without a studio!

Really nice composition and great use of light to draw us in to the picture.

Thanks for sharing.

Hoi Javed,
The exposure is superb !!
Composition is well chosen too. Normally you should not place the person in the center for the best result, but in this case this was the best place.
Good explanation in your note.
