    4 Portraits

    These I took a while ago, but have never posted here to get feedback. The first 2 I tried to go for a 'fashion-y' look, with the more dramatic lighting, and the second 2 were intended to be more formal and conventional I suppose. Anyway, comments and critique are welcomed and much...

    Studio Lighting. How does this setup look ?

    Basically i'm wanting to delve into the world of studio lighting, starting with getting setup with a softbox. I've had a look around, and cant find a 'kit' which really fits what im after, so i've decided to purchase a flash head, stand, and softbox, all seperately. I am on a tight budget...
