    I got an incident light meter for christmas. I have such a better understanding of lighting than I did 3 days ago. :D

    My parents wanted me to shoot my sisters senior portraits. This is from session #1 at the park. Quite a popular park for photographers.

    This time I DID have an assitant. I really like how these turned out.

    MD definitely has a point. I will argue that all women are beautiful, and it is the light that catches my eye (at least at first glance).

    Thank you for all comments.

    Another way to take an incident reading is to use an 18% gray card. It was a real eye opener to see how off the TTL meter is. I had a gray card but it was a little inconvienant to carry around.

    Wow, these are gorgeous, Voo!!! I'm still using a gray card (sniff) and also experimenting with the zone system, while I continue to save for a meter.

    Gosh, the lighting on #2 is just so lovely. You can be proud of these. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!! Congrats on the new meter, too! :D

    Has Matt PM'd you for her email addy yet?? :LOL:
