    While shooting interior shots today for a local recording studio one of their up and coming clients walked in and became a willing subject. I was able to set up 2 bare strobes (rim & background light) and a 42" umbrella (camera right). To quickly achieve this shot. Let me know what you guys think, I like the motion from the rear sync mode and the soft focus. I was going for a light flash look.

    Very nice. I like the first shot the best, but all area keepers.

    Thanks guys,
    I just did quick edits on these in light room, as soon as I get some time ill clean them up in CS3.
    The Studio was very cool! It is Starkelake studios in Orlando Florida. That studio shot is their upstairs not there main board. I'll post a few more shots later of the main control room.

    Thanks for you comments....
     
  7. I like the second one a lot. The wide shots look best to me. Either way, good job!

    I agree but I think a lot of the softness comes from the ultra slow shutter speeds and not enough flash to freeze the motion. But that said I am still in transition from My d50 and not remembering to just change my focus point instead of focusing then re-composing.
