    So this weekend there were seminars, workshops, and model shoots going on at a college nearby. Way beyond what I even expected. It was amazing andis put on once a year. I can not wait for next year. Its a 4 day event, but I found out about it late and was only able to attend Saturday. Here are some shots from the stobe model shot. They werent saved with the highest of settings but they didnt lose too much detail, except for 6 his eyes looks blurred now (I guess it didnt like save). Let me know what you think.

    BTW I am in love with strobes now and my eyes are set on a few!

    Very nicely done. I think your keylight might have been a touch hot in 5 and 6, but that's minor. The only other thought is perhaps a few slight crops to off-set the subjects from centre.

    With the key light creating the hot spot would I have had to back the strobe down? I did close down the aperture but it just made the hot spot a little smaller but didnt get rid of it. Could the strobe have just been too close to the subject, would backing off diffuse a little more evenly?

    What modifier did you have on the key light ? as soon as you start moving lights away from the subject they become a smaller light source so you get harder light even with a softbox

    There were a few different setups, Most were shot with a large softbox on the key light, with the exception of #1 and #6. Which had a huge 7-8' Octobox.

    As far as the overexposure, I didn't think they were. My monitor is not calibrated, but my prints match my lab so maybe my lab just prints darker. I might think 4 is a slight hair overexposed, but I have the RAW files for all of them so its not a big deal.

    Yeah, my work monitor is dimmed. But just looks like the light is hitting a bit hard. The whites seem too bright, and in BW the face looks as if she's geting hard light instead of soft light. I guess we need a little more expertert's opinion. I'm still a noob but that's just my take on it. Not to say you don't take good pic or anything :)
