Hi guys,

I like to share few images form my latest photoshoot I did for a client of mine, who wanted some creative portraits - like the one in my Creative portrait photography (external link) portfolio.

Here is the first image I just finished editing today - for this image I used one Canon 580 ex as main light, mounted on a Coco Ring Flash Adapter for Canon 580EX II as a main light and one Bowens on a strip box as a rim light. The combo was triggered b Pocketwizard Mini tt1 triggering the Canon speedlite which then triggered the Bowens. I did this combo do the the fact that the studio I used had only 4 strobes, this image was captured at the end of the session - where I dismounted the set of 7 lights.

Like the first one a lot.

Don't care for the second one ... it's sort of "meh" as if he's waiting for someone adjusting photo gear. May have liked a red background on the 2nd one too.

But I'll take a look again later .. maybe I'll change my mind on the 2nd one.

Thanks guys, for the positive feedback.

@mdvaden - I'm perfectly happy if I can pool just one decent image, like the first one in this thread, but obviously as he was a customer he wanted some more images - as i said the biger value for me is just one beautifully executed image that can go to my portfolio.

And here is the high key and last image, from that same session.

Actually - I forgot to mention that I have put some information about the whole photoshoot, with some images of before and after editing and of the lighting setup:
