Looks good Steve. Have you considered using a hair or edge light on the lads right side (camera left) when working on black? Just a thought.

Hello Robert.

I did have a hairlight, at first I tried a reflector and medium grid, but was giving too much spread, I didn't want it on the shoulders, so I changed it for a snoot and grid, but this proves really awkward to keep in position, particularly with a little one.

My key light was on camera right as was the hairlight, maybe it would have been better to either put the hairlight on camera left or at least centered it.

I will wait until I get a chance to use the empty office space I occasionally have access to before trying this again, it was just too cramped on this occassion.

I should have taken a pic of the set up, it would have made you laugh.

The Keylight was on the end of a boom, of which was on a less than stable light stand (its the only one currently that the boom fits) This had barn doors fitted.
The fill was a medium sized softbox, as close as was possible without being in view.

I was in another room shooting through the doorway lol, and unusually my subject wanted to wander off after every shot. He's normally pretty good.

I had no other option than to put the rear light where I did to be honest.
But thats enough excuses, for what space I had, its not too bad, I was really just testing my new BXRi.

Many thanks.

It appears the camera focussed on the little guy's vest (shoulders) and not the eyes, so his head appears a little bit soft to me. Otherwise a nice shot!
