    Softliter II and Sb600 in an umbrella for lighting. Comments appreciated.
  2. Nice series Joshua. Nothing like a pretty live in model.
  3. Joshua, one thing for sure is you have a beautiful wife.
    You made good use of the 105 vr along with your pp ability to create wonderful shots of this lovely lady.

    I am not sure about the placement of the hands on the chair, they seem to be distracting from a otherwise fine series of shots.

    Thanks, Darrell. How could I better position her hands? Just leave them out of frame?

    You got that right, Roy!
  5. Awesome series Joshua. I really like the soft lighting.

    Very nice shots (and wife of course :smile:) 

    I see you did some skin treatment is processing them. I find that it is a neccessity with the 105VR to soften the skin as it has a habit of showing every pore and blemish, regardless how minor.

    I have "given up" on the 105VR for portraiture 'cos of my 28-70 and 85/1.4. After seeing these images I think it is time for a "revisit".

    Lovely images of your beautiful wife. She must be mighty pleased with this series.
  10. These are very nice! You both should be very happy with these. Excellent lighting!

    Thanks Keith, the softliter really does a good job here.

    Thanks, Fred.

    Haha, yeah I know...It still makes me wonder. I think I married way outta my league. Hope she doesnt find out.

    Yes, I tend to soften, especially on my sharper lenses...the 105mm VR is very sharp, which I prefer for te eyes and lips.

    She likes them. I finally bought the 105mm VR after Nikon didnt announe an 85mm repalcement at PMA. There has to be an AFS version coming soon...until the, the 105mm will do nicely. It even makes a great macro lens :biggrin:

    Thanks Woody, lighting was 2 sb600s, one in a Softliter II and the other in an umbella


    I love this lens...one of my favorites now.
  14. Wow! You're a lucky guy!

    I am going to go against my norm and go on record stating that the color shots are beautiful. Especially the first 2.
