I've been trying to learn flash photography the last couple weeks but haven't quite gotten it yet. Granted, I haven't had anyone to work with besides myself so it's been extra difficult. Needless to say, I've had to do a lot of correcting in Photoshop. So here are my two efforts.
I am a month away from graduating nursing school and we just had our pictures done. I didn't really care for the photographer's run and gun work so I decided to do my own. It turned out much better after a good bit of editing. This was actually taken late that night after my hair had pretty much fallen and my makeup ruined. But that's what PS is for right? lol.
I was just experimenting with my new reflectors with this one. There was much less post work with this one. I used my flash high above, camera left, shot through an umbrella. There was a 43" white reflector in my lap angled to reflect the flash. Another 22" reflector in my right hand angled at my face. I only have one flash so I used two constant lights behind me for a l little bit of separation with my hair.
Great work, and congratulations on your upcoming graduation!
