Thanks for the advice Pham and thanks for the CC Ray...

I did have the flash pretty close to the subject and I was shooting through an Umbrella because I'm too cheap to buy a softbox... but that is coming shortly.

You guys both use photoshop to edit? I'm using lightroom because I'm entirely too cheap to splurge on photoshop


Some think Lightroom is just as good for digital images as Photoshop. Have you tried different presets via lightroom or users? Give it a whirl

I've got a TON of different presets, but what do you mean by different users?

Thanks guys and I agree it could use a little more light on one side of her face. I do have a reflector but failed to throw it in the truck when we headed out. :rolleyes:

G Money..

those are really good for the first time taking out your soft box and using it the manner as seen in this thread.

heck, my first try the subject was too bright and the back ground was like dark.. not balanced..

your shots are balanced and can be really saved in post processing.. though i preferrer to start out with a good exposure.

good compositions..

hope you don't mind me showing what i was talking about..

Pretty darn good phamster, Don't mind a bit. This does pretty much save this photo. Although she would killme if she knew I forgot to PS out that zit on her forehead. She was so furious to wake up on the day of the shoot and find it LOL

Now what is funny. Is they just called and ordered a 20x24 gallery wrap for her wedding and as you might have guessed picked an image that I didn't even bother to display, but was one where I used OCF so maybe I have future with OCF after all. Here it is

How do you update your firm ware? Great images everyone.

Are you talking about on the new PW FlexTT5's or Mini's? If so, they come with a utility that checks for updates etc. You just hook them up and run the computer!

By users I mean what other people make and put on the web for you to dl free. You can pretty much google them.
I just did a quicky and came up with these.

I've been following along for awhile and have been practicing with my not so willing 11 year old son. Finally took some that I started to like. C&C welcomed. Great thread. Rod

Rod, your son looks like a young Harry Potter. His hair blends in a tad too much with the background for my taste, but his the exposure on his face is right on, IMO. Nice shot.
