    Nice shots.
     
  3. Wow. Those look great! Fabulous lighting! Was that done 'in a studio' or do you carry light around town?
     
  4. These are great. What sort of light modifier did you use to light up your subjects?
     
  5. Very nice, I especially like the lighting a lot also.
     
  6. Great photo's. Can you share how you set up the lighting?

    Thank you for your comments. I used a two lighting approach for this session. I used a 24x32 softbox with an Alienbee B800 the other light was also a B800 but this one I only used it's 7" silver reflector just for a kicker/hairish light. I shot this sequence with a 5DMKII and my personal favorite lens 70-200 f2.8L IS and shot this at ISO200 f2.8 at 1/10 shutter speed(hand held) to get more ambient lighting in the background.
    I personally don't really like my kicker light to be as pronounced in my shots so I went with a f5.6 and a fair amount of distance to get a more even lighting and just a touch of light on their shoulders or hairs.
    I am adding a diagram so you can see better my setup.
    once again thanks!!
