Lighting looks much better with the Bee's. Keep posting dude. The second shot has potential for me... Other then the cropping of the feet.

Now its time to accessorize those bees with some grid spots, barn doors and soft boxes.

Try to reduce the shadows on the floor with more directional lighting from your hair light with the use of flags/scrims or barn doors and if you move her further from the background you can eliminate the shadows in it too.

Keep in mind that now that you have all those lights doesn’t mean you have to use them all every time you shoot. You’ve got this particular technique down, so now it’s time to move on. Use you new lights and go for a different mood.

I remember the first time I showed my portfolio to a pro photographer like it was yesterday. He looked at the first seven pages and closed the book. (My “portfolio� was a book that contained 4-4x6 images per page) “They all look the same. They all have the same lighting, same basic posing and the same expressions. You’re in a box that you need to get out of.� I was devastated. My ego and feelings, fragile at the time, were hurt but I went back and reviewed everything I had done in the last two years and dammed if he wasn’t right.

New lights = new box. Go for it, keep experimenting and show us your beautiful model in a different light or I'll send Erica over to make you an offer you can't refuse.

Rick, You are so exactly right,,I am limited on funds for accessories, but I do have the 48 inch Brolly Box on the way. I also want to learn alot more lighting techniques..I have several in mind..guess I should pick one at a time and practice them until I nail them too. Learning a basic one took me forever..but now that I have the basic concept of exposure understood, the world is my oyster so to speak now...now its time to play and learn and experiment. I just wonder how I go about telling Angel...get all Dolled up...I want to experiment. I think my first experiment is going to be, see what I can do with a single light source and some reflecting of light. I guess I could always use myself for a model...if things get ugly!
Don!

Now about that Hairlight...I have a barndoor on it{it was cheap enuff} and I had it closed down to a two inch opening....and it still causes shadows..Im guessing at the distance it is away from the model...it gets alot of SPREAD by the time his reaches her. the only flagging I did to it basically was a black foam core between the light and camera...so as to prevent flare. Ive seen some "Home Made" softboxes on the net..wondering if I should try this approach? as far as flaggin and scrims..thats something I havent learned yet. but I have nothing but time...so back to the Studying for me!
Don!
