A friend of mine needed some promo shots for a comedy show he does. I wanted to work the crates - which are central to the act and display the name of the act - into the pictures, and he requested I use the garage he practices in.

All things considered, not perfect, but not bad for a first try.

The photo of them backlit was muffed - I should've had a flash behind each of them, and the dome diffuser I used threw too much light on the background. Next time, I'll just use the wide diffuser and get two separate flashes.

If you liked these, you should see the show! (TSTMRKT: Coming to a bar near you, very probably.)

This was my first (mangled) attempt at a three-light setup using a massive Buff PLM outside the garage, a beauty dish on a boom (that had positioning issues galore, since rectified) and a speedlight with a sto-fen in the background.

I need waaaaay more practice. And for the stupid PLM diffuser to @!$#@! show up. More importantly, I'm also still mangling Lightroom - after adjusting exposure and contrast, skin tones always end up orange.

Suggestions are most welcome.

I like these. The first is the best to me though. Not sure about the last one. Overall, you did a great job.

Very nice set. #2 could use a bit of fill to open up the male's deep set eye sockets.

okay, im VERY late to the game but heres my $0.02

i try to avoid symetry in most cases and in #1, both artists leaning on the cases in nearly identical manner and their "heads on their hands on the cases" looks a little boring, i guess is the word im looking for. i would have maybe had him pose more like she is, and maybe had her cross her arms on the case and then put her chin on her arms?

or maybe sit one of them down on one of the cases?

i like the last one, but maybe if his head is turned not quite so far off camera so as to give a little bit of "breaking the 4th wall" and a just barely percepitible smirk or (an expression that maybe goes along with their show). hes turned too far to the side and becomes a bit more of a spectator/prop/assista​nt to her the main character...

i think the lighting looks great (i need LOTS of help working on lighting) but otherwise my untrained eye likes these...
