    Alisonboland,

    one Question. I will be shooting 2 (Very amature) Photo shoots this weekend. I would like to know how you can get that flash in the eyes w/o flooding out the rest of the photo?

    Excellent photo by the way!

    Hey Russrom, i'll just give you the Exif data. This was shot f/16 1/250 iso 100.
    The was shot with 1 soft box positioned 45 degrees to your RHS and slightly higher than the model. I metered for the brightest part of the face (which was her forehead). The one soft box will give you a nice subtle light and positioned 45 degrees you're not going to create a split effect, you're going to get enough light on the other side to give the shot a bit of depth. Look for the catch lights in the eyes, they should be around 2 o' clock. Let me know how you get on. :)

    Problem is I do not have a soft box light, I have Flash 2 13" umbrella! The explanation helps but I don't have the equip, guess what my next purchase will be!!!

    (I have been planing on getting the box lighting anyway!)

    Thank you for your time

    Aww thanks a million all. I'm only shooting 6 months so i still have alot to learn. I'd like to start taking some formal courses to brush up on the technical side of things. The black and white dots are airbrushed on.
