Thank you, and yeah. I agree, those types of shirts tend to make women look larger than they are. I personally am not a fan of them, but I like seeing her in anything, so I didn't mind. Next time I'll try a more 3/4 shot. Thanks. And to answer your question on lighting I used one flash bounced off of the ceiling in the first one, and then for the other two I bounced it off of the white cube that she is sitting on in #1.AprilRamone said:I think they look very professional too. Your girlfriend is very beautiful and looks like a natural in front of the camera. The only thing I want to comment on is the clothing choice in picture #1. I am a huge fan myself of those empire waisted shirts/dresses but you have to be careful because they tend to make you look much larger than you really are. I think it might've helped a little to position her in a more 3/4 view or even a profile. I do really like her expressions in all of them though! Great job
Oh, I also wanted to ask. What did you use for your lighting?
For the first one I used one flash, and I bounced it off the ceiling above her (I had to shoot it horizontal and then crop it, because the flash was on top of my camera, and I don't have any radio slaves or sync cords). Then for the other 2 I shot them vertical and used the thing that she is sitting on in #1 to bounce/diffuse the flash. Settings were as follows:skylark said:Really good shots for a living room studio. As a matter of interest what lighting did you use ? diffusers, reflectiors etc. It might help the rest of us if you could share it :hail:
