Can you explain the flash location on this one?




JUST KIDDING!!!!! ;):p

Analyse the shadows Derek - you should always analyse the shadows.
And catchlights.

Hope that helps... :lol:

Hi SooYoung,

Good exposure. Nice shot... but what's going on in that black area on the left (camera right) side of his neck?

Oops! I completely forgot about that! Frankly, I haven't a clue as to what caused that "ink spill" around his neck. It's still a mystery to me, but in any case it's obviously NOT the image I wanted to post so I'll delete it. I've been losing my mind lately! :oops:

Here's another one but without the mysterious "ink spill"...

One single studio strobe with a large softbox on the right and a large white cardboard reflector on the left. This was one of my very first studio attempts so I was pretty pleased with it, especially since the light setup couldn't have been simpler...

Also have some art nudes on http://www.modelmayhem​.com/onlineove (external link) but didn't dare linking them here ;-)a, same formula, one single light (or just a candle) for all of them (some of the other pics were taken with multiple strobes though).

Three for your viewing pleasure.

Sorry about the size of this one. You can click on it to go to the Flickr page and view 1024px at the widest edge or 3000px. This was one 580EX II with the SP system barndoors on it. It was shot at f/3.2 and 1/50 at ISO 1600 so I could get the numbers on the clock to show in the photo. It was overly sharpened for the person I was shooting the photo for.

Easy one. One B800 above and to the left. This was outside with a set of blinds behind the girl. It was at a DC/Baltimore/NoVa Strobist group meet at the Coast Guard base in NoVa.

Me making stuffed chicken breast. One 580EX II on a light stand to the right bounced off the ceiling.

Basically just my friend and I counting down from 3 2 1. As you can see, it took us a bunch of tries but we finally got it.

With a little soldering you can make sound triggers that will fire the camera. I've never tried it, but I've seen a number of tutorials.

Here's my contribution:
single strobe to camera right with 22" beauty-dish.
f/22 1/320sec ISO 3200 - deliberately as I wanted a dirty / grainy look.

Thanks for looking! :-)
