I was working on these images for the model's CD and came upon a question, and something that I'd been wanting to post here for a while now.

The following are 5 versions of the same image with different PS lighting applied.

My question is which one is best?


This is the original, with 100% natural light and no post processing.



Same image, with a level 5 Fill Flash applied



Level 10 Fill Flash



On this one I didn't use Fill Flash and instead turned up the brightness to level 10



This one had brightness at level 25

So which one is best? Any other suggestions on how to improve this shot?

I like the last one, but I'd bump up the low curve a hair, to ensure the black is really black and not dark grey.

Cheers!

Hmm, I seemed to have lost my linked image.

Ah, here's one! Out of the camera, the black was a rather grey and the skin tone was a bit dark. I used the PS RAW plugin to adjust the shadows and the exposure. I really suck at using curves, and so far I'm happy with the results from the RAW tool. Ew, that sounds nasty...

And now for something completey different.



Cheers!

Nope... make the magic happen in the box... then you don't have to worry about cheesy post methods.



Pay attention to where the light falls.

Poor lighting makes poor images. Light it right... you're supposed to be a photographer.

Okay, in this particular situation what would you have done differently? how would you have "found" the light? Any certain equipment? Reflectors, strobes etc? Please be as specific as possible.

I was using only available sunlight at about 1:00pm on a cloudy day.
