    AB 400 + Beauty dish for main, large reflector for fill, SB 800 for hair & background.
     
  2. Good capture, excellent 'awe' expression on the boy, personally I would have moved the fill reflector in closer to him to bounce back more light. I've discovered that fill reflectors need to be 'right in their face' to work how I want them to, esp using a white reflector. The silver or gold reflectors can use more distance. Handsome little boy. Clone out the pin at his neckline as those bright pixels pull the eye. Otherwise, I find this a very pleasing shot.

    This is a really nice picture; nicely framed, good use of light, good focus, etc.

    I'm going to agree with Sandi about possibly needing more fill, but maybe not for the same reason. I think the lighting ratio you have here is really nice, in fact with a different background it could be perfect. But for me, I think that a high-key background calls for flatter lighting.

    Thanks Sandi, Jeff

    All points noted.

    I will clone out the pin. That is the only thing I can fix in post.

    Jeff: I get your point about background.
     
  5. As long as we're nitting you, there's an unwelcome tiny white element in the hair just above the lad's right ear. We're going to get you to the point where you look at every pixel before you dare post -lol.

    Other than those little things, I think this is an excellent portrait.

    I don't have the trained eye like a lot of folks here. I think it is just great!!! Nothing for me to nit pick about. Although I think that nit picking is good. I appreciate it when others help me see what I miss in my own pictures.

    Good job and beautiful boy.
     
  11. Fine looking young man and you have photographed him well.

    Thanks Christian, Terri, Gordon.

    Terri - yes, I appreciate critiques and nitpicks, I missed most of them when I did not shoot.
