    This is one of the test shots before we shot the actual model. Not even close to editing the actual campaign photos. but i was messing around with this one, tell me what you think.

    Strobist:
    -580ex at 1/2 with blue gel shot from upstair pointing at the painting and stairs
    -580ex at 1/4 with 30degree Saxon grid for kickerlight
    -47" AB octabox feathered from the left

    lighting is badass. Shot will have some awesome depth and detail.

    I actually don't mind this shot too much.

    Crazy mohawk, chucks and crazy ornate throne - could definitely be some sort of internet whiz kid or music genuis with too much money on his hands... Like Pharrell or something...

    I really like it. Mind splain what you did in post on the color shot.

    I like teh B&W also but I personally prefer higher contrast with more of a push in the highlights to be whiter.

    yes my first loss, so the cage crew had fun with it.

    thanks, with the lighting i have been trying to push myself every time to try and find my style. Im trying to learn how to visualize the outcome before i setup the lights. I have been getting better at it.

    Its for a clothing store called Status, and yeah its for a girl. ill get some more up today or tomorrow, got lots to edit.

    thanks, I put the kicker to teh right to the right of the painting in the corner of teh wall


    Post is fairly simple, push the fill light, pull the recovery, add clarity, add vibrance. add some contrast. yeah i understand that, i think my one monitor is lying to me. i got to recalibrate it

    nice

    i like how the she is accented by the illustration of a woman wearing a dress splashed with the blue gel flash. great composition imo, defined subject, but everything kinda connects to make it overall interesting and makes my eye wander to see what else is going on, the glass of wine/champagne she is holding, the blue picture in back, curious as to whats on top of the stairs, the statue, and so on. great shot
