Due to bad weather playing around with lights & techniques, comments welcome good or bad tell me what you think.
Love the quality....tweak up the contrast a tiny bit???
Like the idea lots, As you said you like comments - If are you using around f4 then try between f8 & F16 you will get more depth of feild as the fron looks slightly out of focus. The flash is giving really nice textured light but i feel you needmaybe a white paper sheet on thr right to reflect in a bit more light. Over all i'd try and over expose a stop or 2 then pull back the exposure in software to get a wider dynamic range from the sensor.
I like the fact that the background is black and not seen.
Do mention the lens in your shots if you can as its sometimes helpful - from you other shots i'm assuming it the 105mm nikon.
Your gallary is great, i wonder though if using a tripod and a smaller apeture generally might help.
I'd echo Stuart's comments about needing more depth of field. Parts of this are beautifully sharp but most of it is rather soft, which doesn't really work. I also find the crop to be uncomfortably tight. Leaving more space around the edge of the subject helps the eye stay within the frame.
Other than that, it's an interesting subject and well lit.
Thank you all for your comments & suggestions they are much appreciated.
Stuart I will give your suggestions a ago and hopefully post the results here in the next few days and David yes I did also feel the same as you in regards to the softer parts.
Many thanks once again.
