Trying some different lighting... JimmyD, any better?

After my last post I was told that my lighting was too flat and I needed to add some more kickers, etc. I know I am far from there yet, but does this one look any better?

The main light here is a grid spot instead of my normal soft box. I do have a soft box off to camera left a bit behind the model to act as a hair light. I also have a head bouncing off of the wall behind the camera (about 18 feet from the model) to provide a bit of fill.

Thanks again for all of the help.

Very nice. There's a nice depth and feel to the shot! The only suggestion I would make is to reduce the shine on the models face with a little change in the makeup...

yeah... now that's what i'm talking about! the image has a nice illusion of depth and the the way you used the mainlight and kicker pops the model off the BG. i'm thinking you could hit her a little harder with highlight light... but just a very little bit. putting a grid on your main keeps the viewer focused on her pretty face as the light falls off nicely. since a grid acts more to narrow the spread of the light rather than diffuse it, you're going to get those spectral highlights on her face and i'm not sure makeup is going to cure that.

Many thanks for taking a look. I appreciate the feedback. A lot of other things to correct with the posing and angles, but I am going to try to master one thing at a time [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hello Mark,

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I will definitely watch the specular highlights more closely the next time. I am trying to build a fresnel attachment to put on one of my heads right now, so hopefully that will allow me to add some diffusion to the light and create a softer focused light.

Thanks again,
Daryl
