Chauntel on the beaches of Treasure Island, FL.

Beach images shot with the ABR800 off camera on stand. Second image shot with adding a hand held Metz for hair/rim.

JT,

These images are absolutely stunning! The ABR800 was certianly a more than adequate tool here. I will get to one of your workshops one day.

They say "good things come in threes". I guess its true.

But just a question about your choice of cropping on #1 and #2. #1 crops below the joint and #2 chops off a little part of the knee. In #1 you have a choice cropping when you crop it for presentation, but #2 might have been that way in the camera. So on #2, would you have preferred the rest of the knee to show (assuming its in the original image)?

Thanks

1 and 2 were shot that way in camera and I kept the same format as I like the 6x9 framing. I believe I would have cropped into her head on 1 if I chose to crop above the knee and number 2 was shot tight to balance the over all image and limite the sand in the foreground to bring the model more forward. It was a balance that I chose to not worry about rules.

On a 6x7 or 6x4.5 frame I seem to always follow this rule about not chopping joints off etc but I don't seem so much on 6x9 or 9x6 format.

They are of course great shots of a great model.

It strikes me that the dark or black edge on her hair at camera left in #1 seems more natural than the white edge from the metz in the second shot.

The black edge of the first provides effective separation against the lighter yellow clouds.

This would not have been the case with # 2 where the sky is darker but the white accent still doesn't seem spontaneous.

Great observation. One could put an amber gel over the flash head of the metz and make it more natural if one chose to rim light it. Still use the same technique if one chooses.

I didn't know I was going to use the technique or I would have grabbed the amber gel back at the conference center before going out. It was one of those v-8 moments in which it dawned on me I can fire both units at the same time outdoors.

Very nice shots! Do u have the EXIF info for those shots? Which lens did u use?

I'm trying to save money by resisting the ABR800. I wonder if my shots would even come close with my AB800s with various modifiers, like gold umbrella.
