My daughter makes a suitable model, when she'll sit still. Here's the poop: just got all my stuff from Adorama - stands, umbrellas, swivels. I had 1 hour. Grabbed a bed sheet (ew-blue...yeah), set up a simple 2 light setup, mounted 2 580EX's, set up the remote, and off we went. This is shot number 20 or so. Lens is ES 28-80 f/2.8L at about 30-35. Camera is 40D, 1/60th at F7.1 in full manual. Flash to camera left is manual 1/2 power 3 feet away, 6-76 inches high, flash to camera right over shoulder is manual 1/2 power 6 feet away, 6 feet high. Model is six, squirmy, and prone to fits of severe drama. I took a few shots using ETTL and the portrait preset and watched the results, which were bound to be odd using twin lights and umbrellas. I never knew what the flash was doing power-wise, and the camera was something like 1/100 at f8. They were daaaaark. I went manual all over, set the flashes 1/1 and the aperture to F5.6, fiddled, landed on the above settings, and shot it at is. Kicked it .5 stops in RAW, made a JPG, then removed a blemish on her lip and chin - no other photoshopping. I note a specular error in her right eye: the side light was juuust a little too far forward. Makes it a little 2D as well. Still, I was VERY tickled for a first time-ever session. There it is.
