Gosh, I've been so quiet lately that it's scaring me. Recently I spent some time with my good friend Chrissy and we did some late night shots outside a cathedral near my house and then on another night at about 3 A.M., we were visiting a guy's studio and he let me use his studio to shoot a few quick ones.
The first shot was late at night around 10 PM or so. It's lit only by the spill of the halogen spotlights lighting up the cathedral. The exposure is around a half a second or so if memory serves (shot on a tripod, of course, since I'm about as shakey as our nation's economy when handholding for that long). Do you think that that shadow on the left side of her nose (her left) is too much? I didn't use any fill or reflectors.
The second shot was in the studio but I only had use of ONE strobe, hence the shadow outline. The strobe slaved to my puny, built-in flash on my D70 and that's all I had to work with. We're going to redo some in my studio using more than just one strobe but it was a late night afterthought.
As always, your comments and suggestions are ALWAYS appreciated and encouraged.
