More 50 1.4D with Son

  1. This time I had the advantage of a better light and softbox. IMO, the difference is easy to see between my old AB's vs. Elinchrom.

    Elinchrom 600RX, Chimera 3x4 softbox, D2H - 50 1.4D @ f8:
    NOTE: Replaced 1st shot with this one (didn't like first one after all) :)
    original.
    original.

    Thanks for looking.

  2. Very nice Joe. Did you use a reflector to camera right in these shots? If so what was used?

    Excellent Joe. Yeah, I think I see the reflector towards the edge of his pupil.

    Question to you - so what did you miss with the ABs? I just got started with them and I sure don't miss anything :)
     
  5. Thanks Gordon. No reflector, just one light.

  6. Thanks Bryan. :D
     
  7. Thanks very much obelix, I appreciate the kind words.

    I have nothing but praise for AlienBees. They are without question the best bang:buck in the industry. I upgraded to Elinchrom with the expectations that I would need more reliable lights going forward (I have more paid work on the horizon).

    An Elinchrom light with a Chimera box simply create a different "look" in terms of smoothness. The Elinchrom is also remarkably consistent - every shot just looks the same. I had some fairly wide variances with AB's and the more $ work I do the less time I want to spend color correcting.

    Regards,

    Joe
     
  8. Joe,

    2nd shot is excellent. Looks like commercial ad for some type of kid's product.

    Wow, great light placement, I don't see much shadows on the fill side at all.
     
  10. Thanks very much Joe, I appreciate the comments.

  11. Wow! Amazing images, better than most studios.

    Question for you... How far away was the softbox from his head?

  12. Thanks very much Joe. The SB (36"x48") was about 5 feet away.
