    Ok...I have a message for Marge (I'm hoping I'm remembering her name right)....so Matt, you can't read this...just call that beautiful wife of yours over to read.


    To Matt's wife:

    Dayuuuumm, are you one lucky woman! :p (not that he's not lucky too. :) )

    Sincerely,
    Corry




    Ok,Matt, you can read THIS...

    ...the lighting in this shot is simply AMAZING. I seriously hope I can someday get somewhere even CLOSE to the grasp you have on portrait lighting. Wonderful job on this!

    Corry,

    Thank you :p You are too kind. I'll make sure Marge gets the message, but truthfully, I am the lucky one.

    The thing about lighting is, it is something you can easily learn, and replicate whenever you need. You've probably seen my recent portrait threads. I've been experimenting, and refining, my rim lighting (highlighting the edges of a person to separate them from the background) This was just me having fun experimenting some more and refining that technique.

    It's a softbox on the right (my left), a 24" silver reflector on the left (my right), and to the back left, a silver umbrella splashing that rim light.

    Great picture. It's all 'in place': the lighting, the clothes, your expression. Very good!
