shot some video and stills for a text messaging & party line commercial. The phones in the pics were part of the client's theme so comments regarding them aren't applicable. i thought this particular model/actress had a very classy look. (Canon 10D, EOS 28-135, f5.6 @ 1/60, Novatron m300 main off large wht. umbrella w/canon 550ex backlight off sm. silver umbrella)

Jimmy, Lovely shots. Classic looking indeed. What did you fire the 550 with?

Cheers,

Mike G

thanks.

10D is set to manual. I hand meter. the 550 is set to slave/manual and fired by a canon ST-E2 IR xmitter mounted on the 10D. the m300 fires from its optical slave sensing the 550's flash. i put a small piece of tape over 4 of the 5 contacts on the 10D's hotshoe to dumb it down-- no preflash that way. you'd think canon would have a way of making everything manual when desired, to bypass preflashing, but they don't.

1). I am always bothered about eyes out of the corner. I think shooting down on her more then up would have served a better composition. do you have any other shots with her face not tilted?

Stying issue, she needs a french manicure.

2). Ouch, the heel is stabbing her head. Also the highlight of the shoes compete with the white phone.....I know you said no mention of phone but in this case, I had to. Eyes, out of the corner again.

The model has a long face accented by the hair style. I think she needs a different hair style to cut down the forehead height appearance. I like the expression in number 2. Makes me want to talk to that girl. In number 1 expression, she scares me. Like she's going to kick my ass if I talk to her. Maybe I need my ass kicked, I dunno...

Jimmy,

I like both of the shots... I have to agree with JT about the manicure and the heel of the shoe...

Hair... looks good for this shot, but I agree that I would have thunk about something different for her facial structure.


JT.. First shot is a "Now why did JT call me.. I can't understand why he won't shoot me at a workshop" type of experssion.

Second is a " WOW, KellyG called and wants me to do a SuperShoots Workshop.. Way cool" type of expression.


LOL.. just a little humor on this Sunday full of personal pain...

pretty much as shot. no PS plasticizing-- just some preliminary levels adjust, sizing for web, and a tad of unsharp.
