It was a complete accident lol.

That was the preview image I sent to the client the day after the wedding.

You miss a lot when you're running on 4 hours of sleep!

Did you want the clouds to look like horns or was that just bad luck? :-P

I'm thinking more "Bunny Ears" than horns.

Hey guys,

I'm officially an owner of an XPLOR 600 TTL/HSS unit. LOVING IT!

Anyway, question... since this unit is TTL, does it behave the same way a speedlight does with TTL? As in, it fires a pre-flash which is measured in a split second, the strobe adjusts to the proper power, then fires, all in a blink of an eye which appears to be a single flash.

Since that's the way the camera has to operate to make calculate the exposure for flash that's the way the light behaves.

She looks like she is falling over.
Like the fill with strobe and the warm OOF background.
Its the pose that's the problem.

gotcha. That's what I assumed but wanted to verify. I plan on shooting with my alien bees set to slave and syncs with any flash. That TTL pre-flash would mess up the sync.

Actually the pose is ok, the problem is that I tilted the camera too much and it looks like the model is falling. My fault. The model has enough to stay firm there with those shoes ;-)a

Anyways, this image reached the first place in the fashion section on 500px, so I think people liked it even with that defect.

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it.

Juan

It needs too much correction and the cut destroys the image IMO.

Yah. It depended on how much space the original image had -- i.e., if this was a cropped edit.

That suggests that those voting on 500px are unsophisticated photographers without an appreciation for what makes a usable photograph.

You are right, but I almost never crop my images.
