I haven't been around much lately, but I just couldn't resist posting this. I loved it from the back of the LCD.

Strobe on first curtrain with ambient dragged in. 0.3sec exposure.

Ninja edit: Would just like to add, that there was nothing done to the exposure in post, just some colour adjustments applied.

I like this, good job.

Did you happen to use a light meter, or just SOOC? Thank you.

I don't quite get how you shot this... if its a long exposure wouldn't the entire frame be overexposed? where does the flash come in... just to freeze her but how is the rest so white.. i wouldn't say blown out because its not flaring back into the camera too much.

Having a re-read my explanation did suck a little.

Basically I started with her in the right hand side of the frame (we were shooting inside an apartment but the doors to the balcony were open and there was sky behind her). I shot, the strobe fired and then I dragged the sky into the frame. I dragged my camera from the top right of the frame across to the bottom left to get that line down her face.

Hope this helps,

P.s do you like the shot?

Its starting to make more sense... Sounds like alot of trial and error to get the lines just right.

Well nothing special, my mother asked for a new picture of me for mothers day, seeing as the last one she has is 20 years old, I agreed (much prefer to be behind the camera). I just can't decide between B&W and color.

Camera: Canon 40D
Focal Length: 70mm
Shutter speed: 160
Aperture: F8
ISO: 100
Lighting: Single Elinchrom Bx500ri fired into a white wall behind camera
Processing: Capture One, resized in CS6

Thanks

It was done real quickly, no modifiers or backdrops just the bare strobe fired into the corner of the room for a little directionality and the plane white wall behind me falling to a light gray.

I'll tell you one professional tip that you can carry to the grave with you.

Mothers like to see their son smiling.

Just between us, don't tell anybody else.

One strobe, behind the model.
This was placed on a monopod and held in the trees by her mother.
