I posted one of these images in a previous thread and a few folks liked them, so I decided to put them up here for the masses.

2 images I shot yesterday afternoon. Both identical set-ups. I use the Dynalite flash system. 1 head into a 6' Jumbrella behind me. The jumbrella is HUGE, I actually back-up until I am actually inside the umbrella, and of course we are very close to the subject.

On a C-stand about 5 feet behind her, I have a head with a 10 degree grid spot on a boom arm extension with a 1/4 CTO (very light amber) gel, pointed at the back of the head. There is a black flag blocking any flare from the hair light from entering the lens, and it is positioned between me and her just over the top of the frame.

On the other side, I have a head in a large Chimerra softbox, feathered so that some of it is back lighting her and the rest is hitting the background. Main light metered for f/8, both rear lights are at f/11.

Camera is a D2X set on RAW, Adobe RGB, 125 ISO, 250th second, on tripod, 80-200mm Nikkor VR ED glass, at about 135 mm. Second one converted to BW with Adobe BW plug-in from their website. These days I am using a tripod for darn near everything and the results are worth the trouble (Thanks Christian).

The shoot was for two purposes:

1. Lani is also a model as well as working for me, so this was a beauty shot for her modeling comp card.
2.As we expand our business, we are looking to get into celebrity and personality portraits. We are using these images for a promo piece that will be sent to art buyers in that field.

Tech stuff, the background was the same for all images, an off-white cream colored seamless paper. She is sitting on a couch that is at right angle to the camera, and in the 1st image the seamless shows, in image number 2, she is turned a little bit and you are seeing the far arm of the couch.

I took a look at the lighter sections on the image, the hands, and didnt want to mess with them. It certainly is possible in PS, but I choose to leave it alone. In shooting, I could have put up a flag or net in front of that section if I wanted to tone it down, but I didn't think it affected the overall image.


Any comments or thougts are welcomed.

Oh, the model is my MUA/producer, Playboy Playmate Lani Todd. Isn't she amazing? This simple yet effective set-up works for all types of clients

The only nit pick I have is the what ever it is (horizantal gray background) in #2 coming out of her left shoulder is a bit distracting to me. Other than that lovely model and great shots.

Still love that color image. Absolutely mesmerizing!

I find the decreased tonal separation between the little curl of hair over her eye and her skin in the b/w distracting - it makes me preceive that as a less sharp area. Could be my monitor as much as anything. I'd love to see it as, oh, maybe a 20x24 print on my wall? Maybe not - probably wouldn't get any work done.

I love how that little change in angle between the images (and her slight change in expression) so dramatically alters the character.

Good stuff, Glenn. Thanks especially for the tech info. Nice to hear how an image is done.

<table width="600">



love the second one dude but wouldn't a darker background have been better for the blonde hair since with the white background, the hair light is lost. First one is too tightly cropped for my personal preferences. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Are you coming to Maumee Bay this weekend if you can get away from NYC? Call me.
