Beautiful! Did you use parabolic for this shot?
I love this softbox but it was too heavy to carry around

Yes. A Broncolor Para 133. Just slightly focused to get that slightly harder look.

I can set the Para 133 as a beauty dish. I like how I can change a look by sliding the strobe from A fully defocused position towards a fully focused position to get the right amount is soft to hard shadow.

Thank Imagemaker!
Thats very good tip! Adjust the light intensity by changing its position to achieve certain outcome

I rarely bring the parabolic outside, just the strobe and a small softbox to save more weight for my trip

like the exposure, focus is a little soft for my tastes. Otherwise, nice shot.

Hi Wilson
Most of my photos have been resized before uploading here.

That means it will become softer/blurrier if you try to enlarge it in this forum

I will show you 30% size enlargement of that photo from other website

I pulled this one out of the old Tri-X files. I shot it at a pipe smoking contest, outside a tobacco store, inside a mall.

I lit it with a Vivitar 283 and a home-made bounce card. Put it on a 20' PC cord and showed a reporter where to stand with it and where to point it.

Headshot of my niece for her agency portfolio... Profoto B10 mounted on a socked 7" Profoto Reflector (above, right of model)... Finally getting out to shoot portraitures... It's been a while and I'm feeling really rusty... :-(

But it feels good to be out shooting once again...

That's a truly brilliant use of lens flare. :)
