Field studio for wildlife: brilliant, Martin! I like the fat catchlights in contrast to the usual pinpoints generated by the typical Better Beamer.

A quick shot from last night. Because sometimes you can't sleep, and there's nothing on T.V.

I'll try and get a SOOC later tonight. I shot with the sky clipped because I was more interested in getting more ambient to fill in the dark shadows which in turn exposed the background nicely as well.

I dont see the flash setup?
what did you use?

That would be that big ambient flash in the sky... Longest duration flash around for a few parsecs...

So I'm getting rid of my old computers that have been lying around for years thinking that I might need them as backup. So my iMac from 2007 which I think I'll get $200 for was the first to put up on a site similar to craigslist.

So I figured, why not try to do some product lighting tests while I'm at it. Here's the behind the scenes and the result.

The irony is that the ad was rejected because they didn't think I took the picture ;(

Thats hilarious haha! The same thing happened to me when I took my gf's passport photo. They basicly needed a crappy poorly composed and framed photo.

The Bokeh is too distracting. There's too much of it. Have you considered cropping in closer? Also the subject is soft, he doesn't 'pop.' You may need more light.

That happens to me when I print at Walmart. Which I do in a pinch. They don't believe I took the photo. It felt like a compliment at first, but now it's just annoying.

If bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur, can there ever be too much of it?

To make the subject stand out from the background would not be solved by more light, changing the ratio between background and foreground might though, as well as shaping the light differently.

As for too much bokeh, well i would say it could benefit from a different framing so not really a matter of bokeh.
