I'm trying to get into portraiture/off camera lighting. Today I used the vivitar 285 on a light stand at an approximate 45* angle between myself and the subject. Pocketwizards to trigger. I used the 18-135 lens towards the upper range of the lens. There were no light modifiers used at all. I did de-noise, play with white balance, saturation and contrast. I applied an unsharp mask at the end to try to offset some of the lost sharpness by de-noising. I'm not really going to go into details on what I feel about these, since I would like to know what the community here will see. If you are going to offer criticisms, please offer a solution to the problem, that is the only way I will learn. Thanks in advance! ~Tom 1. 2. 3. 4.
