I have been playing around now for about three years with photography. Mostly concentrating on landscape and artistic type things. I dont have much for portraiture work although I am looking to change that in the near future. It will be a slow process however. Equipment wise I have Sony Alpha A100 Kit 18-70 70-300 5.6 Cheapo slave flash I have various work lights clamp lights and a big 500w halogen light. Want list New body Speed light 50mm f1.7 lighting reflector Backgrounds I did one shoot this summer for my step daughters prom below are some of the better results. I would really like some input from the more experienced people as far as sites you have used or found useful or any equipment that I dont have listed that you would say is a priority. #1 A foreign exchange couple that was here last year. What I see wrong is the dark areas on here face I am thinking a reflector would have helped with this. My step daughter. What I see. The lighting is a little harsh, HER POSE, facial expressions, her hair and bra oh and that little branch growing out of her head which is easy enough to PP out. Most happy with this shot of my step daughter and her date. What I see. Her eyes are a little darker than I would like them to be. A reflector to help with that?
