It was fun getting the legs and the angle just right to get that look. Originally that wasn't the shot but once we saw a shot with the legs up like that we tweaked it and then went for it. I know Laurel really loves the shot.

How'd the color version look?

This is Dana.

3 lights.

22" beauty dish with maxi silver deflector and grid as main light. 14" x 55" strip on each side for edge lighting.

Very nice.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)

The color version looked good but just didn't have the same feel to it.

Bet it would if you applied one of those 'vintage color film' Photoshop filters to it. :D

Robert, would Dana happen to be a Rollergirl?

HI Dave,

No, she's not a rollergirl? This was one of about 5 or 6 looks from her shoot. :D

She's got that 'aura', like she could just as easily skate forward from this stance and knock you on your a**. :lol:

Sorry no pics of girls.... :mad:

but these two fine looking machines are my joy, and test subject.
I recently purchased a light meter and wanted to play with it, these are the final product.

IMAGE: http://48frames.zenfolio.com/img/s6/v5/p51868785-4.jpg
IMAGE: http://48frames.zenfolio.com/img/s8/v10/p203665921-3.jpg

Both shot with a Quadra (main) 7" reflector with a 20 degree grid, and 2 x 430ex speedlites.

First pic: Quadra main above bike, 430ex with red gel pointed at large loading bucket, the other 430ex pointed at ground level to the bike for fill.

Second pic: is the same main light and 2 x 430ex flash, only I have the 2 bare 430ex's pointed at the barn doors.

If you would like to view them larger then click on this :http://48frames.zenfol​io.com/p213253802 (external link)

any comment or hints and tips are welcome

Thanks for looking

Photo of guy falling from building.

Outrageous photo! Perhaps you could improve the blur a bit, but it's darned near perfect. Very engaging and convincing. Well done.

Photo of fallen angel seeking redemption(?).

I really like the concept, and the execution of everything is great, except I'm left wondering how else you could have rendered the light so that we could have a little more contrast in the main part of the photo. Multiple, smaller rays instead of one big one? Just a thought. Also, I don't think you need the fussy border; it cheapens the image.

Photo of "vintage bride" with her back to a dress mannequin.

There's lots to like here, especially the lighting. A few minor niggles: in vintage photos, the sitters tend to have their shoulders back more. The bride here is slouching ever so slightly (really visible only in the lowered arm), which betrays her modernity. It's still a lovely pose, though. Obviously, since it's a color image, you're not going for a wholly vintage look anyway.

The other thing is the dress mannequin. The black "figure" looks a bit ominous hovering behind the bride like that. It takes the focus off of the bride a bit by establishing a relationship of sorts between the two "figures". The curly stand of the mannequin is nice; it's a pity it wasn't just a coat rack or something.

Photo of woman with long, black hair.

The lighting is quite nice, but she looks rather uncomfortable.

By the way, is it possible on POTN to quote images at a reduced size? Other forums recognize the TIMG tag, but this one apparently does not.
