Here's one from yesterday. Had a MUA on hand and that was great. Does anyone have an opinion on the lighting.

Vast improvement from your first posts. Nice to see you shooting vertical as well. The exposure looks good, but I think the lighting is too harsh which is causing those highlights on her cheek and forehead. How about shooting through something white like a sheet or other light diffusing material? If you really wanted to get crazy you could just get a softbox, but try it the cheap way first. This looks like there was no light modifier at all or maybe a silver umbrella a little too far away.

Here is one with a white umbrella positined very close to the subject and shot through the umbrella.

Thanks for the constructive comments. I agree with you assement. I did use a 60x40 softbox, I think it was too far away. I also had a hair light, but in this shot, she had moved a little bit out of it. I also used a reflector for fill.

Thanks again

John

Tina is awesome. I had the pleasure of working with her and a great MUA, Amy Knepper, a couple of weekends ago. Here's a natural light shot using a light gold reflector. Tough to take a bad picture of her. Soft light treats her really well. I agree that moving the softbox closer would have helped.

1. Eye make up with the light fall off looks like someone punched her left eye now.

2. Little splash of light on her cheek serves no purpose here.

3. It could stand to use a little more rim lighting or hair lighting on her left side.

4. Model is beautiful. She has a long face so flat lighting would be better in my opinion. Try and over and under beauty technique that I use all the time. Just put two soft boxes or a beauty dish above and a soft box for fill below. Top one at f-11 and bottom one at f-8.

Tina is a great model. She definitley knows what shes doing. I think everyone covered the technical aspects here so I guess I'll contribute to the Tina post..

Thanks for the comments. I have been thinking about the effect of moving the softbox in, and using another soft box instead of a reflector. Then I will try the 11:8 ratio. I realized that my only limitation is shutter speed; for some reason, I tend to avoid going over 200 or so. I cant think of any technical reason for avoiding higher speeds.

thanks again.

I'm not sure I'm following your statement about the "limitation is the shutter speed". I am assuming you're using flash for these shots, so the shutter speed make no real difference unless you're also dealing with a great deal of ambient light. Just set the camera to the normal sync speed for the camera. Fstop is the controling factor for flash shots since the speed that the strobes fire becomes the shutter speed in effect. Most modern strobes will be firing at 1/1600th to 1/3200th so that's quite enough to freeze the subject. Now if you had a neon sign behind her that you wanted well exposed, then the shutter speed on the camera would come into play.

Cheers,
rfs

I dont understand it either. Maybe it is my camera or I havn't found the right combo for the exposure, but when the shutter gets too fast, I think the photos look oily or something.

Thanks for the encouragement.
