Khaled and Salman booked in for a portrait session on Saturday afternoon, based on some profile shots they'd seen on Facebook.

Here he is stood on that new bridge in leeds near the station.

ND grads, strobes and the kitchen sink on this one

He needs to move about three inches to the right Ade.

That would have his shoulder covering the distracting light in the office block. Tsk , its an in cam thing , all that deatailly stuffWink

The depth and angularity in the comp flows really well then.

Burnt shirt kinda clashes the superb balance , model and sky harmony. Striking image.

put the original up

all I did was de-dust and then run a Nik Colour Efex thing on it - I think he's got reasonably dark eyes in reality Rog, I'll spare him your comment though as he may get upset Wink

Really like this - the desat works very well. One (almost certainly stupid) question - what effect does the ND grad have on your subject? Do you not have problems with them being unevenly lit, or does the flash power generally override that issue?

Cheers
Mark

great question Mark

the ND is over his head - so I put the flashes on 105mm ZOOM to make a spot light that just hit the top of his head and torso. That's why the sleeve on the right is a bit brighter than the rest of him, it's effectively a spot light lighting him - that one had a blue gel on so was cool light.

but the ND bit does cause problems and that's how I get around it.

I did no photoshop work other than a NIK filter on this

Like the balance in both comp and lighting, works well.

Great shot, Ade.

I did post a comment asking about the grads and the lighting, but it seems you've answered it above.
