Fantastic shot Nigel - looks like it's wings are made of gold!

Love the title for this shot Adrian, but also understandable Smile

Country Drive

Country Drive by MattB1987

I have to admit, having only just seen this series you've created with your rig Matt, I'm impressed, both by the rig set-up and the editing.
I was not quite sute how you were doing it!
Excellent work.

Lights On

Lights On by MattB1987

Great angle Matt - I like the ambient light level against the building and car lights.

Tribal Fashion

Tribal Fashion by dathersmith

Great setting Darren - works well with the design shapes and colours.

Sparrowhawk--2

Excellent capture of this fine raptor!

The Sled

The Sled by Pricey

Looks like a Mercury to me -
you captured the gloss paint very well, and a nice choice of split tone to finish.

Crow fight

Crow fight by NeilSchofield

Fantastic set Neil - each shot being good as a standalone image.
Always a pleasure to see your work.

Portmeirion

Portmeirion by SlowSong

These pics remind me more of something from Grimm fairy tales than The Prisoner -
maybe I'm culturally distorted!

Good angle - I think this is a Buick Wildcat, going by the image on the licence plate, but not sure.
Nice image.

Quote: Hi John and Nick, Many thanks for these comments, I really value them and the time you took to write them. Yep John that's the link thanks Smile

Thanks for your excellent points about softening the light, i think i was a bit hopeful that the ceiling bounce would work better than it did and the softer lights would have helped me with the facial shadows i had to process out - I shall look at brolly stands and speedlite holders - only 1 is a canon speedlite the other two are much cheaper yongnuo manual versions. all on yongnuo triggers. I also have a large bendable bounce card i could use (Rogue flash bender large).

Don't rule this idea out Stuart - I've had some very good results and response/feedback to a couple of images where I've used this technique, and I was bouncing flash from on camera!
However, experiment with the technique, as it can create quite a nice butterfly lighting look for front on shots.
Also start with 1 and build on that.

Quote:
I think i get a bit lazy with posing and if the model is confident then i let them look after that bit - that's wrong and i should keep direction going. That would work with the off centre idea too.

If you use a good, experienced model in any genre, you should be able to let them look after that bit, so that you can keep on top of what you're doing.
Occasionally, you may need to give some direction for something specific, and let the model interpret that idea.

Do try kneeling or crouching for full length shots(and 3/4 length), as it only serves to enhance the model's figure, however tall she might be.
With a fixed studio set up with a floor, try moving round 30-45 degrees to give the room(skirting/floor) some perspective(vanishing point).
Regarding processing, maybe try inverting the mask(black), and then painting the adjustment into specific areas with a soft white brush, instead of using the adjustment for the entire image?

Outstanding PF!
Hi Stace, you've been clicking me recently - thanks for the support, so I have come to leave you a PF message.
Your macro photography is superb, and I've just emailed a link to it, to a friend of mine who's also keen on butterflies.
All the best,

Hi Rebekah,
just spent the last 1/2 hour looking back through your pf, and what strikes me is how innovative you are with your shoots and ideas, and how good your self-portrait work is.
Your work is inspiring, and a pleasure to look at.

Quote: I have been looking through a few of your images, some very impressive work here. Good to see you are not afraid to think outside the square. Great Frozen and Getting There images with the darker background. Keep them coming.

Thanks for your comments Stephen, I think I was born outside the square : /
