    That's cool Lloyd! I fell asleep at 8:30 last night & then woke up at 10 & bought the pay-per -view as there were 2 guy's from Brockton fighting on the card (they both lost).

    The robots are taking over, Corlan, the end of humanity as we know it is near. There are drivers, but I am not sure they are alive. Our purpose for the future will be to serve the robots

    Very nice shot, Jason.

    Beautiful and colourful as usual, Carlos, but I wonder; do you sharpen for web? I use USM 80-120/0.2-0.5/0 for web-sized images. Photos tend to look less sharp when size is reduced this much.

    No Jorgen, I sharpen for printing as my customers order prints from Zenfolio.

    Interesting contrast Steve. That first shot is simply breathtaking. I'm impressed by the clarity of that second shot, and the bokeh. Good stuff.

    A friend my wife knows through triathlon asked me to shoot some bridals (I didn't even know she had a daughter that age!). Turns out she wants some, as she puts it, "Cover Girl" looking shots. So last night, my ever-patient wife was good enough to stand in for some lighting tests.

    Thanks Steve. Background is a 60" OctoBox, lit with a Photogenic 1250 DR at 22 WS. Mimi is lit from directly in front, with two Potogenic 1250 DRs, each @ 22 WS, the upper one has a 22" Mola beauty dish, and the lower a 40x40cm softbox. Those are arranged in a "clam shell" configuration and set at the same power for 1:1 lighting ratio. I shot from between the two front lights. There is also a white wall to her left. I think I could have used a reflector on her right, as there is a little fall off on that side.

    Nice test shots LLoyd, if you elect to go this high-key route on a bright bkgd for the final shooting, maybe you might want not to be shy on the amount of make up for the model... and why not try longer focal lengths if the studio setup allows for enough room?

    Just a thought...

    Good thoughts both, Corlan. Mimi had very little advance warning; she'd been on the computer, doing a work project (it is ever thus ), and came downstairs to see what I was doing. Other than a little mascara, no makeup at all.

    I will be using the D3, with 105 VR, and my 70-200 (and maybe the 85/1.4), for the actual shoot. I just happened to have the D300, with that lens mounted, sitting nearby when I decided to check it out.

    Lloyd, those look perfect as is. If you add a reflector on her right, I'm afraid it will look flat, but this is all a matter of taste, isn't it?

    Thanks Jorgen. I'm a big fan of your lighting... So I take that as high praise, and an excellent suggestion.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Talkin' about colour vs. bw, and Zeiss glasses... we have an age-old family tradition dating from way back when some ancestors were serving as Steward in royal households: on the first January sunday following the stressful period of year-end holidays, the hostess don't do cooking or any work... except receiving flowers. This year was no exception.

    Two interpretations of -almost- the same shot.

    Both are really beautiful, Corlan. I think I slightly favor the color version, but only a little. Amazing... really amazing bokeh. Nice.

    You're far too kind, Lloyd.

    I notice that there's a slight wrap from the background lighting on her right cheek. Again, it's a matter of taste if you want it there or not, but moving her further from the background and/or balancing the output between the background and foreground lighting differently will change it or make it go away.

    I prefer to use two strobes placed symmetrically for a blown background, and I use some home-made cardboard disks to shield them, to avoid wrap. Because of a low, white ceiling, I also shield the top of the background strobes, but since you use a softbox there, you probably don't have that problem.

    Good ideas, thanks again!

    ok, so... i'll keep both versions of the rose.
    Spouse now wants the two printed anyway...

    Thanks all for the kind words!


    Jorgen, talkin about strobes & al, did you eventually turn this so called living room of yours into its obviously more appropriate photo studio use?

    I'm working on it. It has been a bit busy since I moved in, but the living room isn't being used for anything else. I just need a white backdrop and some arrangement to make part of the ceiling black without painting it. I already use one corner as a tabletop studio. Last half of February is the target.

    Ash particles recovering the mantle, and an old style glass bottle...

    Two treatments again, one for the book with a midtoned monochromatic, magazine type processing:





    I kinda liked the original photo, though (pretty much out of C1, very little PP):




    sorry for the slight noise here, but jpeg this size it was that or a soft looking file...

    I really like that processing on the top one, Corlan. The original is nice to, but there is a character to that first one that really stands out to me.

    Very nicely composed, and a wonderful b/w conversion. Beauty.

    Thanks for the comment, Lloyd. The original was shot on purpose keeping in mind that for the final "mid grey" look (no black, nor white, equivalent to the classic "Faded" analog processing) to work, it's preferable to have some strong zone contrast, and a good deal of blacks...



    Jason, super night shot from the Second City!
    (second to none, of course)
