Hey all. My friend has a literary web site and I offered to do some head shots that he could include in the "about the author" section. I was wondering what you thought of these 2 shots. I have several others that I took tonight, but didn't edit those yet. I think my lights were about .5 a stop too bright, but just let me know your opinion good or bad. Lighting simply consisted of one alien bee 800 powered at about 1/4 and about 4-5 feet away. ISO 200, manual focus, 1/180, and f/8. Not a very elaborate setup just sitting at my kitchen table in the dining room. I shot a few w/ a white backdrop behind him, but after we were through, I decided I kinda liked the crimson background for this.
