Thank you Frank. Funny you should mention the stray hairs. It was breezy that day and I cleaned up a ton of hairs from her face and eyes. My retouching skills are pretty good but I didn't make a ton of money on this shoot. I asked Dana what she would like to do, as they are her shots. She said she was fine with the hairs on top and actually liked it. Based on the client liking it, I chose to leave it alone.

Ordinarily I'd be inclined to do some cloning but I have to balance my work load and make decisions based on time and financial constraints.

My kid hanging around in a tree. Testing out my new OCF setup: 430EX II into a 32" umbrella, shot with a 50D and 55-250.

Hey Derek,

I always have my full kit with me as well as the lightweight, more portable kit. Depending on where I am, the access to the location, time of day, wind and permission (or not) to shoot at a location, I use the appropriate kit.

For that shoot we were shooting in front of a castle and we were definitely not supposed to be there. I needed to work quickly and be able to pick up and move at a moments notice.

You had that box in close, didn't you?

Where did the fill camera left come from?


This space for rent.

Hi Matt,

The softbox wasn't all that close. It was about 4 or 5 feet from the subject.

The fill light source was our friend, the Sun :cool:

The loop shadow to the left of her nose have such nice, soft margins. I think that might be a better result than I get from my Ezybox.

Of course, my ezybox only cost me $150 more, so that all makes sense in the end. :confused:

I've never actually done comparisons between the Lastolite EZybox and the Cheetah Qbox but I'm really enjoying the Qbox. I've found it to be a very nice light modifier with even coverage.

I definitely like and can recommend the Cheetah products.
