Most of you remember that I had my first "real" for-pay photo shoot a couple of months ago at my son's pre-school. One of the girls' parents wanted me to take individual shots of their daughters...so the shoot was yesterday. Tried my new studio lights. I bought 3 AB800s, used one for key in a 47" octabox camera right, 2 lighting the white seamless paper background (one high and one low). Fill was provided by my SB800 in SU-4 mode at 1/4 power. The kids were moving around so much...the catchlights are all over the place in their eyes...hard to keep those little ones still I decided to trade a half-way decent expression for proper catchlights :wink: And a different look. Same AB800 in same octabox for key, but one of the ABs is just behind the girl shooting through a pink gel onto a black background. 3rd AB is above and behind the girl, camera left, through a 30 degree grid spot for a hairlight. And of course, some garage light: And as a tribute to Tom Johnson (tomj), here is one I took as an "outtake"...he has the best shots in between shots... We had a good time, even thought the baby puked all over my new black background...good thing it's a seamless roll of paper...just cut off that end... We had a good time, but I sure have a newfound respect for baby photographers...yipes...I couldn't image doing that all day. I was exhausted and it was only an hour or so... I still have about 40 shots to go through...but these were my favorites so far.
