    Keith,


    Excellent portrait.


    I can only see one thing missing. Hair Light.


    That little bit of light from high above rear, I find, serves to complete the seperation of thethe subject from the background. 3D Baby!!


    The side light is awesome and I think positioned well. With a hair light you could pull the side light around a little and turn it down.


    For a two light setup, you nailed it. Kim (my wife) and I recently did some outdoor bridal portraits and that setup worked really well.


    Love the mottled grey backdrop. Where'd you get it? The next investment I make in photo equipment needs to be in backdrops.


    I'm going to dinner (on the road with contract work - 190 miles from home []), check back in later.

    Thanks Chuck!


    It was actually a 3 light shot. I'm not a fan of the direct hair light. It tends to make things look a little glam and not what I was going for.


    I normally would have gotten the side light up a little higher to hit more on top of the head but the space wouldn't allow it. I used a Ray Flash for a fill to give it some dimension and 36" Softlighter II for Key. All powered by 580EXIIs.


    The background is just a black seamless. i think the combo of the ring light and the soflighter give it the mottled look.

    Re: Post Your Best Portrait Shots!



    Hey guys, I took this one tonight...






    Still loving that Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 wide angle. Today, however, I got a new toy to go with it--the Delkin Fat Gecko Camera Mount. I think this was the most fun I've ever had doing a self-portrait.



    strobist: 1 Canon 580EX, 1/2 power, 1/2 CTO gelled, positioned to my right, diffused by a Fong Lightsphere. 1 Vivitar 285, 1/16 power, 1/2 CTO gelled, laying in the back seat pointed at the ceiling, bare. Flashes and camera triggered via Cybersyncs. Camera attached to hood using a Delkin Fat Gecko camera mount.

    Wow Sean - this is so cool!! [H]


    So you took it while driving? (seems like that because of the lights behind)

    Yep, I took the portrait while driving. I used a Cybersync CSRB connected to the camera via a motor cord from flashzebra. The connected to the camera was triggered using a CST in my right hand (which is also working the gearshift). When I fire the shutter using the handheld CST, the CST on the camera's hotshoe would fire the strobes. It was alot of work to set up, but I was happy with the results. ;-)
