forum: Flash and Studio Lighting

When you shoot at 24mm, when something is pointed slightly towards the camera (her right hip), it will pick up some exaggerated distortion.

As a general rule, being an event 24-70 shooter myself, I try whenever possible, to avoid using the 24-35mm focal range. It is there when you absolutely need it, but try as much as possible, to zoom with your feet and avoid shooting people at this FL.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Used off an camera 600exrt. The wireless is so fancy.

I hope the first one is different/good and not so much different/weird

Poses: 1. Disappearing arm. 2. Broad palms perpendicular to lens.

Lighting is more prominent and even on her chest than her face. Should be opposite direction, more even on face, more shadow and contour down below.

Hope that helps, Kathmandu!

Thank you!

Is there a rule of thumb, or general recommendation for avoiding shadows when doing HSS in bright sunlight?

Damn, this image made me look up how much that 200 f2 was. Even if your skills came with the lens, I still couldn't afford it! :) Great job.

haha, thanks! I contemplated buying this lens for quite some time... I recently found it on the Canon USA refurbished site for over $1k off msrp and finally decided to pull the trigger earlier this year.

Here's one I took with a Flashpoint Speedlight mounted into a Godox S-Type bracket and a 7" silver reflector attached...

There's no arguing with mom. Good work under the circumstances. Did you need a shoehorn to extract the infant? ;-)a

The more I see these very contrived new born shots--that are currently, apparently, what every parent demands--the less I feel comfortable about them.

Jeez, I am old and out-of-date, it seems. I love a picture of a newborn, fresh in this world. But the style that fashion currently dictates is truly dreadful.

Yeuchh! ... Gone said it!


Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.
