wow, nice!


how does the depth of the softbox/octabox affect the light? is there more/less spill/spread or something?

The depth is what makes the deep octa very directional and focused with greater contrast than a standard 39" octa. That directionality and contrast are what people are referring to when they say that the deep octa can produce light very similar to a beauty dish.

Great light, but I think the skin texture looks odd to me.. I'd scale it back a bit.

I kind of agree with jschro in the skin comment. May be too much High Pass or Oversharpening?

Really like the PP on this one, while some can take the skin to far to me this is perfect. Nice work

Thanks. Retouching is such a personal thing. There's no way that everyone is going to like the PP every time. I'm ok with that.

Hey Pham,

Thank you.
I never show the 'before' shot but on this one she had such bad skin and I really had my work cut out for me. Unfortunately this took me about 5 hours to get it the way I wanted.

Perhaps Rafael. Maybe tomorrow I'll look at it with fresh eyes and see what I think.
