This was shot upstairs in my house without a black background so I had to edit out the background which was a pain the arse.

Strobist info is here: http://www.flickr.com/​photos/dphan/498886900​9/ (external link)

QUOTED IMAGE

Nice! :) Funny did a similar shot today but with blue and red gels...again on a non-black background, but got too lazy to edit it all out!! :D

Good idea Jeff.

I'll help get the ball rolling.
This is the shot I posted over in the other thread and another one from the same shoot of Stefanie.

The first shot was with a 53" Octa on camera left with a large white reflector at camera right and the second shot is with a 24" x 32" Softbox with grid at camera left and white reflector at camera right.

Yeah my monitor has some DEEP blacks. Its the 24" iMac. It looks perfect on my monitor and actually exactly how I want it. On other monitors with brighter displays it is able to be seen.

I need to figure out how to adjust my monitor without a color calibrator. I have no clue how to do if on a MAC.

The first image was shot with the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR and the second with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.

That second image has recently been re-retouched, as my pp and retouching skills have vastly improved since those images were shot. :cool:

Hi Rob,

Thank you. I do a lot of this type of work on Savage Super White seamless paper. I like the Super White over standard White because of the greater reflectivity.
