So after my first model flaked out, I managed to line up this chick on less than 24 hours notice. Shot this in old town fredericksburg this afternoon. I had planned on doing this later in the day near sunset but her schedule didn't permit so we shot from 2-3pm. all done with my D300 with my 28-70, a couple of shots with my sigma 10-20. the first 3-4 shots are all single SB800 bare. I then brought out my new SB600 and used that for fill with the SB800 as key. Later on i used only my SB800 diffused into a 60" reflective umbrella. Both fired with my cactus V2s which worked flawlessly. 1. - natural sunlight only here 2. 3. 4. 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 - no flash. Shot this with gold reflector using the sun over her head (12 o'clock position) It came out more warm than i really wanted though, but a good learning experience. 12 13 14 15 16 17 Talked with Girth about this last shot already and I agree with him that I went too far with the PP. I'm going to dial back the smoothness of her face and the blue in her eyes, but I'm tired now and ready to go to bed. That being said, her eyes were ridiculously blue and most of the shots required very little to bring them out.
