After spending to much money at Focus, basically new lights thought I should try them out, Have to say quite pleased with my first result, this is straight out of the camera, so really happy with it. Thoughts comments welcome.

Really good, lovely ballance of light on your mums face and the background is bright without being overpowering, nice one.
What was the set up with the lights in the end?

Looks like a good investment to me. Would be useful to know what lighting set-up you used.

This is spot on Trace. The skins tone came out really well.

Certainly does impress over and above what the thumbnail offers.

A well organised head and shoulders shot, shooting, the older woman, just off on the left, my wife wont pose anymore, she was a model too...Hmmm... great to see it work so softly executed and so well cropped. Great shot. Chen.
