It's nice. I would warm up your key light a bit so it looks more natural. Maybe a 1/8 cto gel?

NM, I see you asked about post, not the actual shoot. Only post related comment would be to try and bring up highlights in the hair, parts of it look dull and lifeless.

Post just looks a smidge too smooth.. if it is on a different layer I'd bring down the opacity a smidge.

could also warm the skin on another layer in post to balance the color.. but love that background, beautiful!
Beautiful gal too.

Cudos for leaving some skin texture in and not turning her into a complete mannequin.. nicely done.

Interesting that you guys both said the warm up the main. I actually did warm it up in post but didn't want to go too far...I guess I didn't :lol:

Good point on the hair being dull. The skin retouching was the removal of some blemishes and I reduced her patchy redness. I think I also used an adjustment brush and moved the clarity down a bit. I guess I went a bit too far there.

This was really only processed in LR since I'm still trying to wrap my head around layers in PSE.

Thanks for the thoughts fellas!

Thats cool, thanks guys. Yes on location shoots would be best so portability is key. Can you use those bare and still have it be softer light than a speedlight? It looks like it comes with some sort of cover or diffuser so I was curious. Plus I dont necessarily have a speedring just yet so if I did get it, I wouldnt be able to pair it with my 24' cheetabox for example.

Purely speaking, a bare bulb is practically a point source which goes in all directions :), at least in a black painted studio.

Practically speaking, it depends on the room you are in--the light usually bounces off walls and ceilings if they are a light color (as well as anything else reflective) and since the reflected light is coming from all over the place, it is a larger (and hence softer) light source. You can point your regular speedlight away from your subject and bounce it off of another surface, but the way it bounces around is different.

You can't use a soft box without a speedring. If you have a speedring for, say, bowens, you can adapt the Godox. There are some good adapters for Elinchrom and Bowens (universal) which I have used. I would guess they are available or could be adapted for almost anything.

That portrait using the 48" Octo is simply faultless!

A lot of fall-off/ short DOF for this focal length, maybe a touch tighter aperture next time? Nice shot though.
