I've really been struggling with lighting and posing lately. I tried again this morning with my wife and have a few images to share. Here's one of my favorite. What do you think?

[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Hi greg,
I have to say, I love seeing people trying so hard to learn. It's awesome to see this and a pleasure to help.

I like this photograph. Its a wonderful portrait.
Now here's what I would suggest, try to pose her in the same spot using that same light, But this time behind her, have a light shining down onto the back of her hair. The reason for this is, it will help seperate her from the background. Right now, we cant see where her hair ends and the background begins. So we need to show this. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] And also light shining onto her hair and slightly wrapping around the side toward the camera, will help give the photograph a more 3D look to it as well.

[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Keep going, keep experimenting, and keep smiling,

John

Thanks for the feedback. I had not thought about a hair light. Good idea. I was looking to taper the light off, but I see what you mean about the hair.

Here's another from this morning.

I like this shot, the lighting works for me.

What I didn't particularly like was the tilt. The picture would have been just as good if it had been a straight -no pun intended- horizontal.

Your wife is extremely pretty but your lighting still needs work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] See the shadow below her nose and across her mouth? It shouldn't be there. You want to evenly illuminate the mask of the face. The shadow should start at the front far side of the face and work it's way back. Try using just one light. Darken the room and make the modeling light on your main light the only room illumination. This should enable you to see how the shadow falls before you shoot. Keep plugging away.

Thanks for the feedback, Paul. I guess I should have mentioned above (thought I had) that this was taken with natural light from a window to camera right. I had a reflector camera left.

I had not noticed the shadow before that you mention. For this setup, what do you think? Turn the model more towards the window and bring the reflector in closer?

Gotcha. Yes, turn the model's face more toward the window. That might mean you have to move her a little farther away from the window but that won't matter; you'll just have to use a longer exposure.

Hey Paul,

What did you use to shoot the picture in your earlier post on this thread? I love the clarity of your work. I've been frustrated lately with the results I am getting. I feel like I should be able to do better with a 10D. At least, the camera should be capable.

Greg

Thanks for the nice words but I don't think my image is any clearer than yours. Do you adjust the Levels for every image? I don't see any problem with the one you just posted but make sure your focus is locked in before you shoot. I always use the center focusing point.

Good lighting on this one, BTW.

Paul

Hmm. I usually try to set the focus right on the eye. Does it look off to you in this one? It's been a long day so I might just be being thick.
