I took these shots yesterday as part of a Movember (www.movember.com (external link)) calendar shoot at work yesterday. Lit with a bare SB800 on a lightstand, and a silver reflector to bounce some light into the shadows (on board flash as commander with -3).

a reflector camera left would have made these shots. Good content, just needs some fill light on the shadow side of the face.

Thanks - yeah, I had a 40" silver reflector camera left, but because I didn't have modelling lights, it was difficult to know where would be shadow etc.

Love the shots, mate. Good stuff :)

Yea I would agree. Seems the shadows are a bit severe on the left, unless that's the look you were going for. Maybe paint some exposure on some spots?

Number 2 is the winner! I like the shadows and atmosphere! I swear that was me and my friends before going out (before kids that is).

Looks like a bad 70s cop TV show - I mean that in a nice way. I like the shadows and the typewriter

Hehe, thanks - yup, I love it too - it should just be shot on a real wood desk, as opposed to the modern plastic veneer!

Lol, got from googling for a Lorem Ipsum generator :D.

Thanks - I thought what better way to fill a page of text :).

Yup - you are right - I was aiming for a really contrasty look, but I was without modelling lights (strobes are good when portability isn't an issue), so it was difficult to judge if they were too dark, but I don't want to introduce noise by brightening the shadows too much.

Hehe, thanks - yes, that's one of my favourite shots too!

That's exactly the look I was aiming for, so that's a real compliment!

My main problem with these is the shadow caused by the built in flash: I see that in *all* images except the typewriter.

Fun series apart from that.

A white reflector might have been easier, since it reflects less "directional".

Yup - I need to look into getting an IR filter for the built in flash so that it doesn't cast a shadow any more - shame it can't be disabled - I thought it could, but now I don't think so.
