Trying to get familiar with studio lighting. Starting with a single octobox. Taken yesterday as a part of a lot of test shots. They were getting fed-up with me but I like their expressions. I like how the BW looked on these two.

Nice soft lighting, the dark shadows and contrast really do work well with the b&w, great conversions.

I really like them both, but the first one is dynamite. I love a good black and white.

I might remove the little dark circles from under their eyes.

Great pictures.

Very under exposed. Check your histogram while shooting to avoid things like this. Keep trying.

a bit under-exposed, but it also adds to the haunting look.

I agree with the above two comments that these are both under-exposed. That being said, your daughters are both adorable and seem like fun subjects to shoot. Your lighting is actually nice in terms of creating contrast/shadows, I just wished you let a little more light into the camera.


He still has one more move.

not every studio portrait has to be high key.

i actually don't mind #2. It has a journalistic feel to. It would rock if you sent #2 thru nik

Wow, have I seen those faces before! Some days my girls are willing subjects, other times they are just done. I wouldn't mind them a bit lighter, but they work for me as is.
