Any chance you've got the settings for camera and flash on this shot, handy...?


1/250 f/6.3 ISO 200 24mm

From memory the flash setting was about 1/4 and the BD was gridded

I never get tired of seeing your work Simon. Very distinctive, high class look. I find it extremely appealing.

Cheers - it is nearly there but the "look" is slightly off - but setup to take was less than 2 mins as time was very limited

OK - don't think I posted this .... Kacey BD high and right

Simon,
I agree with Rob, you continue to nail it. I have to say I think you are finally dialed in with the BD. I thought your first postings with it were a bit hard and the shadows a bit too deep compared to your earlier softbox stuff. This seems much better to me.

It is definitely hard light - close up is ok and like here it is softer but sometimes it has to be further away but with me still wanting the quick falloff that the soft box doesn't give so the shadows become harsher ..... all a bit of a compromise

Yes, I've never been able to satisfy myself with the BD other than really close with young fresh skin. When I try to use it as you have I'm not happy with the results.

Really, now.... you should learn to shut up about such stuff. :D
I can say with a conservative amount of certainty, that none of us here would have known that.

We should all be that "on top of it".

Simon, your work, as with a few others on here, is always appreciated and extremely top notch! I wish I had more work to share, but living in a small town (i.e. 700 people), I have a difficult time getting work here. Good thing I'm not a professional trying to make it on my own! LOL

I check out this thread every day, and your work is very inspiring! Thank you for sharing it with us!

HI Moppie,

I really like this image. Nice work.

Thanks Rob, although I have to say this is one of those shots where all I did was show up, point a light and press a couple of buttons :o
The Model, MUA, location, Elinchrom camera and lens did the rest :cool:

Closed the first one on page 666? It's the devil's work, I tell you! :)

I'm pretty sure I posted a link at the end of the first thread.

Maybe you need to post something to help it along :cool:
