i feel in the third one his face is lit up to much

i like the composure of the second one, shame about the 2 people in the background

but for a first attepmt, i hope my first strobe shots turn out looking as good as these


Favourite loadout currently: Canon 7D mkI + 50mm f/1.4
Next desired loadout: Canon 5D mkII + 85mm f/1.2
Side Arm: 17-55mm f/2.8
What can you capture with the click of a button?

Hey Bro,

I Personally like #2 the best. I just feel the 2 black figures on the fence a little distracting. I think #3 is a little hot and his skin tone looks a little blue. Are you lighting him from the ground? Is the flash on a stand?

I think the lighting in #1 is better than the lighting in #3 but the pose in #3 is better than the one in #1, possibly because his face is facing the camera but his eyes are going off to the side. #3 his eyes are following the face.

I think raising the light and having some fill on the other side of him would improve the lighting in the pictures so he isn't as hidden. Well that's just my opinion. Later.

the flash was handheld by my other friend.thanks for the comments yeh the lighting in #3 sucks if i had a reflector or another flash it wouldve been better. Oh and as for #2 i tried.
