OK, So I figured I would try out this garage light stuff to see what all the hub-ub was about. ISO100, 1/250, f1.8.

So maybe I should park my cars outside the garage more often...:wink:

Now you see what all the hub-bub is about!:smile: It's a great place to shoot and your portrait of Nick is a great example of why. You may be fortunate to have accidentally set the aperture to 1.8. At 1.4 most likely one of the eyes would have been obviously OOF.:biggrin:

I usually set this lens to f/2 for garage shots. It seems to be the best setting for reasonable DOF and nice background blur.

Great work John!! Glad to see a new portrait from you!

I'll try f2 next time...I also need to work on the background...it was too bright, so I think I need to move farther in...

Very nice shot John. I've been meaning to give the old garage a try myself.
Thanks, Fred. I don't have any reflectors, but I'm going to order one tomorrow. Should help with capturing some light underneath...but who knows...this turned out pretty good...

I used my new 42" Photoflex 5-in-1 yesterday for the first time - shot a little girl in her Communion dress. Her parents asked me not to post the images, but the reflector really worked well. Not cheap at $100, but a very high quality product. I highly recommend it.

Fred, great minds think alike...that's just the one I'm going to order...
