I took a few quick pictures tonight to see if I can create more separation from the background. Let me know what you think of this one. Thanks to everyone for the input on my photos.



A butt shot too....

Thank you for the kind words, but I'm sure they have some problems. For the lighting I used a large octodome as my main light to the left. I used a large silverdome to the right and high as a fill. I used a cheap spot light above and right rear for the hair light. Lastly I used a spot low to the rear left for a back fill.

Good stuff. This gives much more seperation from the background than the last image you posted. BTW, your model is gorgeous, in case you didn't notice.
Best Regards,
Darrell

What do *YOU* think now that you've added the illusion of a third dimension?

I think the separation from background works. Seems a little more natural in #2 than the first one.

The first one also seems a little soft in the face, but I spent last thing re-sharpening some old portfolio images and may be a little too focused on it.

I like the pose on the second one the best.

I think that it's hard to see all of the things people are tell you to do or not to do at first, but if you take it a little at a time you start to improve. I can tell a big difference from the photos that don't have the lighting from the back, but I couldn't see as much before. Thank you for all of the comments and help that you have given me on my posts and everyone elses that I have learned from too.

Thanks for the reply Ron. The face was a little soft in #1, I had my fstop too low and didn't focus on the eyes. I went back and sharpened the eyes and lips, but didn't bother the face.
