Not sure where to put this. I did a family shoot Wednesday and I wanted to try something like a special fantasy piece for them.
2 speed lights were used, one in their lap bounced directly off of the book. The other bounced in a reflective silver umbrella on the floor for fill of the front of the book etc.

Shot with the Sigma 24-105A (exif is incorrect here) The second shot is showing the exif for the BG.
Kind of a before and after:

I like it.
I think the lighting works, and the compositing and blending work as well. I'd move the background image down enough to hide what looks like the horizon glow just behind the chair arm. That's more personal esthetics than anything technical.

Might minimize dad's double chin a bit too.

Nothing "creative," just a straightforward portrait. Impact 60" umbrella to camera right; boomed Speedlite for hair-light; continuous light for the backlight; white foam board as a reflector below to the subject's right. Critique welcome.

Paul,
I like the drama the lighting creates. I'm thinking that brightening the whites of his eyes just a bit would enhance the effect.

Both images are lit with three strobes -- two in the rear, gelled with blue and red. One in front for illuminating the model, with a medium sized gridded softbox, camera left, on a boom just above the model about 3 feet away. A small gold reflector to add some color and drama is placed just below her chest in the first image and to produce some unique catchlights as seen on the bottom of her eyes.

Fog provided by Atmosphere Aerosol.

Well done. The light from the octa looks like its the sunlight hitting the trees behind him. Not sure if the light on the bike is necessary but it doesn't detract.

Nice lighting.
In the second her face is less lit than her tummy.

I'd turn down the lights a stop or two. A little too bright for my tastes.
