I've been "house bound" for over a week now getting over some surgery. I needed to do some practicing with my studio lights. Yesterday I fiddled with them some. I was wanting some low key shots of my girls.

Here are a couple I liked. The frustrating thing was I had another hour worth of shots of my other daughter and my wife and they did not save to the card, or heck I forgot to put the card back in, or who knows what.

I've rechecked the 5D and everything seems to be working fine now. I guess I should have been chimping.

Anyway, here are a couple of the shots.

One of the things I'd do different is pick a different bear next time as his black hair does get lost.

Thanks

can you switch your camera settings to disable shooting if there is no card in? i can with my 350d, so im guessing you'll have that feature aswell

I like the poses and the general setup, but wish there was more separation between the subject and the background. The light falloff on the bench makes it fade into the background - which may have been your intent. A little fill from a reflector on that side would have provided some separation though.

Thanks,

Part of my PP also makes the shadows loose detail. I did want quite a bit of falloff but agree I'd like to see more edge detail in the bench.

I love number one. Good expression and good pose. What a cutie.

I would love to see more light in the background or at least on the bench.

How old is the little princess? She look like such a sweet girl!

These shots are really good! I actually like the fall-off into the darkness! It adds to the composition because the subject can be seen clearly, and then you have the fall-off which to me, is just awesome because.....it just is!


He still has one more move.

I usually ask parents to not pick shirts with logos or words on them, but since yours was a spur of the moment thing it's ok. Pics are great! As mentioned, some seperation between background and model would be preferable. Maybe a hairlight or BG light.

I actually picked the shirt with the logo and writing on it. I felt it better defines her and what is more "typical", same with the jeans and bare feet. The hairlight was used as you can tell the hat is lit up well and her face is also lit up nice with no shadows under the brim.

With respect to the background I did want to light to fall off into blackness I did not want a bunch of light on the bench as to keep the attention on her. She is 10 by the way.

I will be tinkering with this setup some more and might try and figure out how to get just a touch more light spilling over the back edges of the bench to give a little separation.

Thanks
