It's an artistic nude, showing the beauty of the female form. I fail to see what is disgusting about that.

As to not posting it in this thread, I think I agree with that part. Maybe for nudes like these, blurring the intimate parts could work? That way you can show the setup and the result without offending anyone (or violating posting rules for that matter). Just my 2 cts. :-)


Are there any "intimate parts" actually showing? I don't think there are...I agree...a totally ARTISTIC nude. Beautifully done.

Not as such. However, despite the fact that we both think it is a beautifully done artistic nude, would you say the image is safe for work?

fwiw*, it's been my experience that he mods want questionable posts to be reported to them and NOT policed by the rest of us.


* probably very little, i am sure. :D

Am using a pair of Yongnuo YN-622 C e-TTL II and haven't notices any triggering issues so far, love it.

No hot shoe on the Jinbei. Only a 3.5mm jack.

Thank you guys!

Thanks! WB was set to daylight, we shot this in the late morning and on a partially cast sky, the color toning was done in post. We first meter for the sky/background and then add the flash and adapt the power to get a correct exposure on the subject, we're pretty used to that so are quite fast to get our settings done.

I apologize, but I can be a bit slow. So for the WB, what do you mean by color toning? Are you taking one exposure and then applying different white balance for the two color casts? Or is the color from the flash balanced well enough with the ambient that you didn't have to worry about it too much? Something else completely?

When I last did an outdoor shoot with flash I had a heck of a time figuring out later how to get the subject and background to both look right. I probably should have used a CTO, but didn't have them with me at the time. I think in the end I made the background a lot warmer than it should have been, but had the right color for my subject (cousin). My aunt was thrilled with the results, but I wasn't. Of course if an old cellphone picture is in focus she is thrilled, so it really isn't saying much.

Anyway... Thanks for the info! I'd like to figure out how I can get something remotely as well done as your shots. (Its going to take a lot of time/practice I'm sure).

Hey, Quick,
One way to do it, and it's what RedCat was describing is: in manual mode, shoot the scene without a light. Make adjustments on your camera to get the background to look exactly how you'd want it to be in the final image. After, do not change your camera settings and turn the strobe on. Then shoot it. Change only the strobe power, position and distance to your subject. Doing this should give you a nice balance.

Only thing to keep in mind is that if your flash/trigger does not have HSS or high speed capability, when you set your camera settings, you should not set the camera shutter speed to faster than your sync speed (1/200 on a 5d). In this instance, you can only play with the F-Stop and the ISO.

I may have misunderstood, but you seem to be talking about exposure matching between strobe and ambient, whereas Quicksilver is asking about colour matching.


Cheers, Damien

There are several ways of matching color temperature, the easiest is to do some prep work, go to the place the day before and shoot some images with a white balance target. Not the 18% gray, use a real digital white balance target like the colorchecker or WhiBal. Take some without the flash and then add the flash and shoot some. Once you get home open them in your raw processor and look at the difference in readings then gel accordingly.

I guess the easiest is to use a color meter and do the math right on the spot but those are so expensive.
After awhile it becomes easier and you know you'll need once certain kinds of CTOs for daylight.

Another way is to do it in post and mask to match.

Those pictures were shot at around 10am, so the ambient color temperature was quite matching the color temp of the strobe, that is true that when shooting closer to the golden hour or sunrise/sunset can be more tricky.

This is disgusting. This belongs in the G&N forum not here.

I agree - get it out of here.
