Senior shot with Single Softbox...


done with one soft box.. and manual 580 ex triggered by the cactus system for this one..

really dragged the shutter to get the ambient light in there

Look at the lines.. All the lines go towards Megan.. even the cars, and lights in the background.. so use this as an example of how to bring composition to help your subject..

580 was @ 1/32 power
i was at very high ISO..
light was camera right boomed by her sister

Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Exposure:0.02 sec (1/50)
Aperture:f/2.0
Focal Length:85 mm
ISO Speed:2500
Exposure Bias:0 EV
Flash:On, Fired

Super well balanced and excellent comp. Id say its one of your best!!

Couple of shots from last friday, my first try with Elinchrom Deep Octa. I'm really pleased with it so far! Any tips on how to improve the lighting?

Got three of these! :D Shot the photo with it being the trigger for the 580EXII bounced into a reflective brolly positioned horizontally.

Wow, I always thought PW Plus IIs had a glossy finish. I don't know why but I always just imagined them that way.

I can literally imagine myself touching these. :)
Nice texture quality on that pic, Headshotzx.

You're not entirely incorrect. While that is a good image that does show the texture, it seems to have lost some of the lustre. The body of the Pocket Wizard Plus II does not appear as matte as in the image shown. There is a light shine or gloss on it.

The man's right. This was side-lit, and doing so will accentuate the texture a lot. Try side-lighting your own skin. It'll look flaky even if you have really smooth skin (:

can i ask you how come you didnt use a filter to create the same color lighting and then adjust your WB to cancel the yellow.orange lighting out? and then fine tune the WB on the PP? IMO i think the orange lighting is terrible...but besides that i like the shot


While you are certainly entitled to your own opinion as to what you like and dislike, I'm at a loss as to your comment. The "orange" lighting is no different than using gels on a background.
