Nice location & processing, but the short lens has made her feet very big and her legs funny.

Great shot, but to my eyes, looks like the focus is on the front of the hat. ???

Agree it makes it looks quite odd. But I also guess it has something to do with the water.

^ Love it, Zach... The B/W conversion definitely adds substance and depth to an already great capture... Good stuff...

Playing with light... Flash light, that is... 15 second exposure with a flashlight moving in-and-around the camera/lens...

Hope this is the right place to ask..

I shoot mostly people, sometimes sports and cars.. I'm thinking of buying a 300Ws (battery powered) strobe and probably one or two modifiers for situations where speedlights just don't cut it. I was planning to get an octabox and a beautydish, the strobe comes with the standard reflector.

I know it's a very difficult question but what would you say is the "best" size for an octabox? I obviously want something much larger than the 60x60cm (24") softboxes i'm now using with speedlights but it still needs to be easily portable and not too cumbersome to deal with when shooting alone. My options are 120, 150 or even 180cm (47", 60", 70") - I'm leaning towards the 150 which I think should give me even light for full body portraits but is still OK to deal with.

Thanks!

You should probably start a separate thread for this, seeing as this one is for posting pictures with a single strobe/flash. Depending on the brand of strobe you're planning to buy and what you want to shoot, people will make specific recommendations.

you can review the photos too, and see if they posted the modifier used. I try to, and I know others do also. there is no right or wrong modifier, it's just how you use them and what you're shooting
