So I've recently been getting asked to take "executive" type portraits at work for command photos or retirements. I was really happy with my first go at it and thought I nailed it until looking back yesterday and comparing the 4 that I've done so far. I thought I'd share them on here and get your opinions on them as well as I believe they've gotten progressively better. The camera settings changed from shoot to shoot (obviously) but the biggest change was with the lighting. The first 2 were with a shoot-thru umbrella and the last 2 were using my 26" Octa Rapid Box. All 4 of these were shot in the exact same spot with only 1 light and a reflector and using lessons learned from the previous shoot. Let me know what you guys think. CC much appreciated.
1. Shot with my Tamron 28-75mm & shoot-thru
2. used my 50 1.8 (mk I) for this one & shoot-thru
3. used my 50 1.8 with this one too & rapid box (for the first time ever)
