I bet you screwed up the photo several times (bad timing, bad angle, wrong settings on camera etc.), and had to re-take the shoot again. Of course someone needs to empty the glass before re-shoot.

When you make a batch as good as this one is, wasting any is not allowed. I limited myself to a full glass which ended up being four shots. Coincidentally, #1 is the best. :)

Well.... depending on the disposal method, I might not call it "wasting" :) Unless you get wasted.

Cheers John, yeah mate no problem, I've done a couple of step by step tutorials on some other comps I've produced here (external link) and here (external link).

quick explanation:
boost the highlights and shadows in lightroom
open in photoshop: soften the skin then burn the shadows and dodge the highlights (that gives the detail)
save down then reopen in lightroom
boost the clarity slider and slightly desaturate

this techniques relies on having the light just right, I usually have two 430exs through umbrellas left and right of the subjects.

Hope thats of use mate

Thats wonderful, thank you - I'll give that a crack for my next project :)

I took some studio shots for my girlfriend's mother who plans to sell her knitting on Etsy.com.

Many more photos here:

http://www.jamilabbasy​.com/2013/02/hand-knit-by-linda/ (external link)

Setup: 550 EX on left and 430EXII on right with gold difuser on right to give more fill. Flashes were set at 1/8th power. Handheld at 1/125 and f6.3. Knitting styling done by my girlfriend. Everyone is happy with the results, but I think next time I may go to a smaller aperture for more depth. Thanks for any critique!

Oh, and it's really annoying to have to keep turning the flashes off and on again when they time out between shots...have to figure out if there is a setting to prevent this.

From looking at the 550EX manual, if the on/off switch is set to SE, power saving is in effect. With the 430EX II, custom function 01 set to 1 will disable auto power off.

Thanks for the response. I guess I should have read the manual. I just figured the 430 didn't have that option. Thanks again!

And that is another point. Most folks these days are not buying prints and mailing to grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. They simply email them or post to their facebook page and family can instantly share them. Let's face it. Who wants to have a shoe-box full of prints that are rarely viewed when they can just upload everything to facebook for the family to view at 72dpi. Absolutely no need for a 20meg image.

I totally agree. My co-worker actually made a good point this week (tangent alert!). When we are great grandparents, no one will be searching through our attic and find some amazing old photos. You won't see our photos for sale at a flea market. If they're not like us who backup everything, print photos, and make books, etc., they will be on some old hard drive or computer that has failed or locked away on some cloud server that we don't know the username / password for. The olden days "we did nothing with our photos" meaning we have negatives and 4x6 prints now means that they are locked away on a computer possibly soon to be forgotten.

I'm actually getting ready to have all my old family photos (200-300 prints) scanned and put on disk. At that point, I can go in and tag each image with names/dates then I'll dupe the disk for each of my sons, my sister and her two sons and my wife's family. Everyone will then have copies of the images with names and dates.

I have family photos going back to the 40's that would have no meaning to my family otherwise. Those interested in keeping the family memories will, I'm sure, keep the data updated so that it will be accessible.

Awesome idea, be a lot if work but well worth it. Once for Chritmas I got my dads entire slide collection put on cd (it all managed to fit on a 750mb cd!!!) I've never beat that present in his eyes, loves putting it in the DVD player and watching it without having to set up a projector

Thanks, here's another attempt at it. A bit easier to setup without any extra lights. Very little PP, colors are straight SOOC.

I looked at your gear and I really like that bag that you have. Is it a double or single shoulder strap, and who is the maker??
