You'd be suprised how much weight you can carry evenly distributed on the body and for the average person this wouldn't be a problem for short periods when traveling.

Nice dog shots Penel and Mike.

Putting it in perspective ...

If a person is two stone overweight they're carrying an extra 28 lbs (12.7 Kg).

How would you sit on the plane in it too?

this blue and white whippet was absolutely stunning and so well behaved too. I had his paws up on a box (that helps to keep them still!) which also helps to lengthen the front of the body.

Good to see you back Kev, lovely Amsterdam shots too. I really need a holiday, which is ironic since i work in travel :(

Jonathan wrote in post #14663621 (external link)
Rob - I think you may be missing the point I was trying to make.

I may well have done- its a difficult subject.
Unfortunately for this photographer, the damage is already done. Heres hoping he is able to shrug it off and continue without problems.

I think everyone should line up to kick the editor that decided to publish the unedited shots in the first place instead ;)


youarenotaneditor.com ?? ;):lol:

And in other news - I finally decided to be a musician again after 30 years. Should arrive on Friday I hope (I have my nose pressed against the window already) then I need to re learn how to play the damn thing!

Get a reflector if you can to fill the shadow side. anything white will do if you havent got one.

Evening all. I hope your well. :)

I haven't been up to anything toggy other than taking a few phone pics of my new shed.

Clare, those otters are great. Such fun to watch.

Penelope, nice doggy shots, and well done for raising the monies for charity. I think my new shed would make a very good studio. :)

JD! You wprobably know, but it's beer festival time at the Bell this weekend. I'll probably be there Friday after work if your around. Would be good to catch up with you guys. :)

What kind of look are you trying to achieve with the portrait? Do you have a pic of the setup so we can help?

you'll be fine Mat with a brolly and reflector, maybe need someone to hold it up incase its windy.

I'm off the Italy on Friday for my sisters wedding(baby better not come or I'm a deadman), BBQ Friday night, Wedding on Sat, weather looks good in Genoa region. My mothers on at me to bring a camera, so annoying as they have 2 photographers booked so I told her straight today, I'll bring a softbox, flash and a few lens for the Friday BBQ but I'm not ponsing around on the day as its not on, I still don't think she got it....."but we'd like a few photos" grrr thats why your hiring people!

That just sent my wife into awwwwww meltdown :D She desperately wants a whippet or a greyhound.

let me know if you decide to go ahead - I have plenty of rescue contacts esp for sighthounds. They are beautiful dogs to shoot, so elegant.

How shady do you mean when you say shady?
this is one I took of a friend for her work profile thing - grey background because she was wearing white. I know there is some shade on the left side of her face but I think if faces are totally evenly lit it can look weird. So this was the flash in a 24" softbox on camera left - slightly above her height but angled down towards her - and a silver reflector to her left. Probably haven't helped at all :lol:

Try and keep the brolly close in to the subject ( as in just outside of frame), that way the light source seems huge to the subject and it will wrap around the subjects head, offering a smooth light and less shadows, but retaining directionality.
