Please let me know what you think. The first shot, i dont see much that needs to be changed. Of course that is why im posting these, looking for your coments good or bad. The second, should i have lowered the light power to increase shadows and definition? Comments appreciated. One more question, how do i make the pictures larger? the other posts i have looked at are nice and big so details can be seen. Is this something i have to do when scanning and saving a file? Thanks Dean

Do you have a light meter? That's how you set the exposure. Get the reading right and all of your images will be right.

When I used to scan, I always scanned at the max res of my scanner. Then I could upsize or downsize to my heart's content.

To post larger images, you'll need to upgrade your membership to at least a premium level. Then you'll be able to upload images that are bigger and much easier to critique. #1 is a bit dark and a lot of your perimeter detail is lost in the shadows. #2 a little washed out. KEEP SHOOTIN' AND POSTIN', you'll get there!

Thanks for the comments, i do have a light meter, am a little confused using it still. Seems i get 2 different reading. should i be standing at the camera and pointing at the subject, or standing at subject pointing at the camera? Each gives me a different apperature reading.

Stand at the subject position and point your meter at the light. That assumes you have an incident meter. What make and model meter do you have? Are you using strobes or hot lights?

The meter is a Gossen Luna-Star F2. The lights are Novatron strobes with a 240 w/s supply.

Okay, thanks. That's what you want to do then. Stand at the subject position, point the dome of the meter at the main light but make sure it also sees your fill light if you're using one. Most studio photographers choose their working f-stop first (I use f8) and then adjust the lights until they reach that reading.
