So this morning, I decided to play a bit with my 24" softbox + silver relector.

"I'm Just a happy go lucky guy!"

FE 90 @ f2.8

Gene,

Wow, now that is sharp indeed! Did you use eye AF?

I'll have to dig out my silver reflector now!

Well, it was turned on through the camera's menu but I was holding a wireless shutter release when I took this 'selfie' so I'm not sure what method the camera used to focus. :lol:

I actually prefer this self portrait taken at about the same time but with the softbox over my head. My expression more closely represents my demeanor most of the time.

Here's a before the crop view of that first portrait above. All I did for this, other than what little adjustments I made in ACR was re size and convert to black and white. It will give you a better idea of where the softbox and reflector were located.

Another portrait shot from the same series, this time playing with light and color.

I really need to find someone willing to pose for me too. :-D

Really nice work with the self-portraits Gene. Lighting is on point and the FE90 is a very competent portrait lens. Really sharp and renders nicely.

Thanks. I have a 2nd flash on preorder and am looking forward to playing with more than one light.

Is it very obvious that I added the Venetian blinds in post? I was trying to emulate a 1940's style.

Hah I actually thought it was something you did in post. But it looks really cool.

Are you adding another Di700? I've been eyeing that kit for a while...just sold my 600EX set-up and have been considering the Di700 system. I'm using cheapo yongnuo lights that work fine, but it'd be nice to have ETTL when the situation warrants it.

I think the biggest giveaway on the blinds is they should be larger on the wall behind the subject since it's further away from the source. ;-)a Someday, I'll hang a real venetion blind on a light stand and shoot through that!

I'm getting the Di700A. The "A" series means it will communicate with the A1 commander by radio. The first purchase I made was the kit with one flash and the commander so this time, all I need is a flash. They're back ordered but supposed to be available by the 3rd of this month.

I would offset the shadows of the blind in the background so it looks more natural. Other than that very nice!

Thanks. By the way, if anyone is interested, here is the full sized template I used for those blinds.
