Are these photos using external or ambient lighting?

Hmmm, maybe the attached pictures don't do justice. How about this one? - http://www.pbase.com/a​lbertjou/image/8877891​8 (external link)

In that one there is an additional light source - you can see the reflection in her eyes. Now, it may just be a reflector and not an actual flash or strobe. In the second one you posted, it looks like there are two catch lights, but it could just be environmental.

No flash probably all ambient.

I'm guessing he used a white reflector as a fill? I'm thinking that's the source of some of the catchlight in a few of the photos.

Just a speculation, but I think he may have used external light(s).

I took a look at a handful of samples and they were all shot with shutter speed lesser or equal to 1/250s. Perhaps staying within max sync limits.

Hmmmm. I'm interested in replicating this soft fill light. It's subtle but also noticeable. I have a photoshoot with a friend and was planning to use a single umbrella. Not sure if that will work out the same way.

I agree with those that suggest ambient only with a reflector for fill. In some of the close up head shots you can see the reflector and absence of a catchlight that would be produced by an off camera flash.

Shoot him an e-mail and ask if you really like the work. I have never found anyone at pbase that didn't respond to one of my questions......
