^^ Absolutely beautiful shot, I love it! I'm still learning so by my eye I am guessing it was flashed from the camera right based on the hot spots and shadows correct?

Yes sir!

Are we allowed to post stacked images?

well it would be a creative way to use a single speedlight so i would assume yes, you are allowed to post stacked images


The most important piece of gear you own, resides in your head and its called your brain.

Thought that I would throw in one of mine to the mix. This is a single speed light in a shoot through umbrella with a reflector below (clam shell lighting). EXIF intact.

QUOTED IMAGE

just WOW. Are you shooting a full frame camera? For anyone who's using a crop sensor...is this kind of color POSSIBLE?

I've been shooting raw and paying a lot of attention to exposure/metering..

Maybe it's just my processing skills (LR4), but I feel like this quality image isn't possible with my T1i.... am I wrong?

Please feel free to look at my galleries in my sig.........there's just something a little artificial looking in my portraits in my opinion. Any advice would be appreciated :)

Took this one last night. Speedlight on a bracket with Lumiquest ProMax white bounce card and diffuser, f1.4 and a 2-second exposure for the background lights.

hmm...so you had him stand really really still for 2 seconds? I can see some blurring of his hair, but the rest of his face look sharp :) You must have been using an 85mm+ lens or the tree was really far away for the bokeh circles to be that big.

I can say this now... yes, I am shooting full frame. I just got a 5d2 a few weeks ago and have been playing. It has been fun. It mates up with the Sigma 70-200 very nicely. Better than on my 60D. As for pics, yours look very nice. I dont know jack about post processing. All my pics get just basic settings, exposure, contast, clarity, NR and maybe a little sharpening. Still have a lot to learn when LR and Photoshop.

It was really dark in the room except for the Christmas lights on the tree. So the flash effectively froze him, with a little motion blur around the edges. I was working in a small space. So not a lot of distance between him and the tree, but you're right that I was using the 85L.

Where does one get the RVP-Neutral picture style? I like the bold colors.

I don't remember where I got the picture style, but you can try googling it, the file name is RVP-100F(Neutral).pf2
A quick googling, brings me this address http://www.edgeinterio​r.com/ps/ (external link) with some picture style including the RVP Neutral, I tried to download the file and the downloaded file is the same to the file that I have
I hope it is not against the forum rules to post this link, otherwise I'll remove it
