Ok, so I am saying this right up front, this is an incredibly unattractive picture of me, at least in my opinion. However, I was doing a shoot with myself (that is what boredom at 12:30AM gets you) and I really liked how the lighting turned out on this one. I want to hear from you guys on what you think! Strobist Info: Canon 430EZ shot through soft box, subject left, 1/8 power Quantaray PZ-1 shot through bed sheet, subject right, 1/16 power Triggered via optical ----- 2 ----- Got home and did my first shoot with my BRAND NEW USED 50mm AND my new homemade softbox! Woohoo! Oh my God that lens takes such awesome pictures. The quality just blew me away! Anyways, here is the one we chose from the shoot. I'm still actively working on trying to improve my posing techniques. I've been going through Vogue magazine and Marie Claire like all afternoon HAHA! No homo! View On Black! Tell me what you think! Strobist Info: Canon 430EZ shot through softbox, 1/16 power Quantaray PZ-1 shot through trash can diffuser, 1/32 power 3 ----- Went and shot with the Devocean guys for a little bit before it started to rain and got this shot of James kickflipping down a 13-stair. 4 ----- Another self portrait and another incredibly unattractive picture of me. I'm not sure about this one. Let me know what you guys think of it. DEFINITELY VIEW IN LARGE Strobist: Canon 430EZ shot through softbox camera right, 1/16 power. Quantaray PZ-1 shot through bedsheet subject right, 1/32 power. 5 ----- This is pretty much straight out of the camera other than a little bit of sharpening and a bit of contrast in camera raw.
