Is that just direct flash? If so, did you have to clean up any nasty reflections?

Looks like it is bare flash using the QBox bracket and ballhead.

Thanks all, yep that was just bare flash, I did some skin work in photoshop and curves stuff to make it more contrasty on the wall while making the light on her face/skin less harsh as it was just a bare flash. And yeah that is correct the flash is on the Qbox bracket, I pretty much walk around with the box and the stand, easy to just pull the box off (or not even put it on) if I want more harsh light or simply just a quicker setup/tear down per location.

is it just me, but I don't see the setup shot...

I think what tagakweens was referring to was the fact that the model's "pose" in the "setup" shot is different than her "pose" in the actual "resulting" photograph posted.

In the "setup" shot, the model is crouched down, but in the "resulting" photograph posted, she's standing up.

tagakweens (and myself also, and maybe others) would have liked to see the resulting photograph of the actual "setup" shot...where the model is crouched down.

At least that's what I conclude from this.


Photographers do it in 1/1,000th of a second...but the memory lasts forever! ;)

thanks (and sorry for the confusion to my inquiry).... but my question was more literal... I actually don't see the "setup" picture, i only see the "result" pic... i think it's my work pc... sometimes it doesn't let me see pictures that are posted here....

thanks though.. :)

Ahh ok...my bad. Didn't mean to put words into your mouth. :oops:

I've actually thought what I THOUGHT what you meant, a few times myself. That the subject in the "resulting" photograph doesn't look the same that it/they did in the "setup" shot. (Different pose, position, etc). :lol:

I want to see the actual photograph that resulted from the setup shot.

no worries.... but it's possible that after seeing the picture that I could come up with the same conclusion as you..... :)

Without having two cameras fire simultaneously, that is very difficult to do. :lol:

Most of the time you don't have the model "posing" while you do your setup shots. The setup shots are intended to show the general light setup, but slight adjustments to the camera or light locations and angles are perfectly fine.

what Moeronn said haha, and I wasn't too keen on the actual result of that pose but I believe my camera position and flash position was the same as the above shot so I posted it though the pose is different

Luke; how are you powering the flash? In the setup photo, I don't see a receiver of any nature attached.
