    BSEH, that reminds me of Richard Avedon's portraits. Well done.

    Hi Jack,

    Thank you very much. It is already nighttime over here in Abu Dhabi, hence only the camera settings:

    D800, 24-70/2.8, 1/4 sec (freehand !) at f / 5.0, ISO 500.

    Tomorrow I'll switch on my iMac and post the software settings. I used Lightroom 4, Photoshop CS6 and Nik Color Efex Pro 4.

    If it is of interest, I can also post the OOC photo.

    Greetings, Juergen

    BSEH: Excellent selfie. I like your lighting, although for my taste the rim light in from the back is a little hot, which is surprising for a low power SB25! The octa gives such wonderful light, and the rim works, but I'd go a little lower power. Let's see more!

    Yah Is blow out left side on picture - takes away details - aftner the shooting i found out that it's a flat screen bouncing light dono why i ditte se it before.

    And yes the 47" octa gives at great light - I'll try more..

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    [QUOTE=Lloyd;472727]A quick explanation. I was shooting stranger portraits...stopping random people and asking to take their picture... when I saw three young women coming my direction. When they got close, I asked the two blondes (first image) if I could shoot them. I took a couple shots, showed them what I got (I also always offer to send them a copy), said thanks. While I was fiddling with my camera they all started to walk away. I called out to the redhead, and said that I wanted to shoot her too. She was shocked... I'm sure she thought I only considered the blondes worthy, and wouldn't care about shooting her... but she stopped and said ok. She was shy, and a little stiff at first, but opened up after a couple of shots, so I got this. Beautiful young woman, and my favorite shot of the day!

    (Yes, I'm a sucker for redheads, but I come by it honestly... one gave birth to me, and I married another. )

    You, sir, are a brave man!!!

    OK - here we go:

    Lightroom 4.2 -> CS6 without any changes.

    In CS6 Brightness/Contrast to my liking. Then Levels on "Auto" with minor adjustments. Then I added "selective color" red/black with 3%.

    After resizing and mild sharpening, I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Filter "Vignette: Blur" with slightly adjusted settings.

    Greetings, Jurgen

    Very nice. If you were trying for Avadon lighting--white background and modeled subject--you just missed it. See the reflections on the sides of your face. Your background lights need to be separate from the lighting on the subject. You can either block the background lights with a flat or move the subject further away from the background where the light no longer interfere with the subject.

    I use Avadon lighting as a great way to teach my students the idea that your studio space can be broken up into two areas--subject and background. Basically, there are two different lighting spaces. The idea is to keep them separate. If the subject can see the lights, then you will not get Avadon's look, at least not without reflections on the sides of the face. The other nice point with Avadon lighting is that you can also have the background lights too strong where they are going to interferer with the subject as well.

    I am not sure how big your studio is, but it is a three-dementional space. Many people put the main light to the left or right of the subject. But you can also go up and down with the light. So many folks don't raise their lighting which can give more definition to the face--noses, chins, cheeks. The very flat lighting you have is nice. It brings out many textures in your eyes and hair without a lot in the skin. I find the evenness under your chin a little disconcerting. Whether it is worth changing the lighting for that, I am not sure. Just a thought.

    The only other thing I might prefer is if you were looking directly at the lens. That connection in portraits can be very powerful.

    Thanks for the words, I'll take every ne to me and try use it next time. I dit not tink Avedon (but will now) - i was really making a visaphoto for my india visa and start playing with the setup in my spare room .

    But point taken on - 2 zone lighting - eyes, but my 53 y.o. face love the flat light... but sure i can get more live into the picture with light from above.

    Thanks for your time..

    Have fun. The studio can be a great place to work.

    Ha ha I'd make some other visa photo - with ears -

    Yes I'll drag friends into studio and work to learn the Avedon technique "American west style"

    Hmm maybe i can make a thing just like Avedon with people from the streets of Delhi .. I'll think about that...

    The interesting thing about the portraits in Avadon's American West series is they were taken outside under natural light. Just a white sheet on a background stand and an 8x10 view camera. That might be very possible in Delhi, if they don't mind the setup in the middle of the street.

    If any places It's Delhi.. They love to get there pictures taken,like no place in the world i know.. just do it with respect and you get away with what ever. But India is color for me - so if l make B&W I pick big city like New Delhi..

    went up to Red Rock Canyon here in vegas with dad today. the clouds looked promising...and then they rolled in fast, and thick, and gray, and then it snowed.

    also playing around with C1 Pro 7, since my LR4 trial expired, and I'm irritated i missed amazon's $75 sale (i can get it for that price as a teacher, but that's just doing too much...as my students would say. haha)

    anywho...D600 w/ (in order...i think) 28-105/3.5-4.5, 85/1.4G, 50/1.8D








    the last one's actually untouched, straight through C1, whatever it's native settings are. a rare bird, that.
