    I got a chance to try out this roll of white seamless paper that I ordered several weeks ago. I love how versatile its..you can get white, grey or even black background color. For these shots i was going for grey. My lovely wife volunteered.

  2. The paper looks great as does your pictures.

    I have been wanting paper, just haven't ordered it yet.

    How were they lit?

    You wife is beautiful and really has some fashion sense... great outfits and accessories.

    Very nice, the back gave you a very nice gray and your wife is a perfect subject.

    Roll is about 9ft wide. Almost to big for the room I setup in.

    The set up was pretty basic..a 1 flash setup for both. Stood the model (my wife) about 7ft away from the backdrop. 1 sb-800 to the high front, slightly to the left. The first image was shot thru a softbox. The second was shot into a DIY turkeypan/fong lightphere beauty dish I made.

    Thanks for the comments so far.

    One more from that shoot:

    Added one more light via shoot thru below the softbox to light her lower half. I wanted to get a full body..but the low ceilings in that room wouldn't let me pull back enough.
  16. Excellent shots!! You've got a gorgeous wife - you only took 3 pics? :biggrin:

    nice shots! and she's beautiful
  18. I like your images and of course your wife is lovely. In looking at image #2, I feel it is too dark and the WB is off (to the green side). I couldn't resist the temptation to play with it just a little to see what the problem was. The first thing I did was to go to levels and noticed that the histogram data was a bit removed from the right side. I then took the white eye dropper and clicked on the brightest part of her blouse. This brightened the image and made her eyes more visable and also gave some detail to her hair. I then made a couple of minor adjustments with the contrast/brightness slider and lastly went to hue/saturation and increased the saturation just a bit. Try it and see what you think.
