This is the VERY first shot I took of the evening when I did a shoot for a friend of mine in a hired studio just this week. He wanted some shots for business and hired me to do some more "professional" images. I was pretty pleased with this considering. It was a good fun shoot. Did some more "informal" shots later. But thought I would start with this. Just simple, single large softbox light, white infinity curve behind, thats it. A touch of adjustments in LR3 and PS, but nothing fancy and bobs your uncle. As its a man and simple, not thinking I am going to get many comments and votes, but lets see Smile

Very good conversion to b+w, which I prefer.

Thanks guys.....my prediction was pretty much spot on, but glad you guys like it! I am torn between mono and colour myself, just not sure. But was pleased with first shot from the shoot! Cheers Jools and cheers Carsten!

V2 in mono wins my overall vote.

I like this image, good eye contact, nice balanced lighting. Crop works well.


On a completely different subject... I have just clocked you are using a 7D - you can go off some people you know! I early bought one at Focus this year... so should have done. Next year.

Ha ha! Sorry fella Wink Will admit, it's a very nice bit of kit. All the stuff of a 5DmkII and with a bit extra in some areas so love it. Only downside is no full frame but that CAN work to your advantage with longer effective focal length. So swings and rroundabouts I guess. Very happy with it. The price is coming down now as well with the advent of lower models doing such a good job. Worth hunting around I reckon

Oh and glad you like the image. Not getting on much at mo to reply cos away in Scotland in the stix so absolutely no signal. Just seen I got a bit of a signal on my phone so thought I would reply. Cheers Smile
