    TakahiroW4047 - Impressive dynamic range. Did you process separately for the highlights and shadows?

    @w349 - This is a single image shot : ) The way the sun is angled, the subjects and the tree lines behind them are both partially "shadowed". So apart from minor luminance adjustments in the "green" and "yellow" range, I was able to keep the blowouts to a minimum!

    Welcome back, Americo. IMO, you still need to work on focus - in the shot above, the region of critical focus is on the her hair on the other side of her face. Ideally, you want the eyes in focus if nothing else. In this case, the makeup applicator would also work as a focal point. A few strands of hair in the background just doesn't work as a focal point, for me.

    Beautiful shots, G-G. May I ask which program you used for the framing?


    Thanks.

    Here is one from a shoot I did last night. She is going to be a senior in high school. I'm starting to use my 50mm f/1.8 for almost all of my portraits and now I really want the 50mm f/1.2! ( but I think I will have to settle with the 1.4 )


    T2i + 50mm f/1.8


    f/2.8 - ISO 100 - 1/500


    Natural light, I used a shoot through umbrella as a diffuser. And now that I think about it, I also used a reflector in this shot.

    Wonderful portraits.. I haven't been much around though I would like to share one of my favorite shots. It was an experimental thing. Would you be able to discern how many lights was used in this shot?





    Thanks for viewing!
    Cheers!

    @Baker - Great shot!! The focus on the eye is perfect : ) I just recently upgraded my 50mm f/1.8 with the f/1.4. There

    AnGelo, I'm not a strobist so I'm out of my depth here. But I'm guessing 3 maybe four lights. My reasons would be the catch lights in the eyes, the exposure on the skin and the highlights in the hair (and the background). Yet all this could possibly be done with one cleverly reflected light - I think.


    @ Baker, Wow. That shot just makes me want to put my 50 1.8 back on my camera. Very professional looking shot!

    @Baker, Both are Awesome shots! It just goes to show that the photographer is more important than the equipment.
