Taken this afternoon trying out the back cloth which I have made to use in our back room. I also used the lights Ian very kindly bought me for my birthday last year. Luckily Ian also managed to get my flash gun to work with the radio trigger.

Not a lot done to this, ' so I see' I hear to say.

Got rid of the creases in the back cloth and altered tones with the curves tool.

Just a bit of fun on a Sunday afternoon while the dinner is cooking.

Thanks for looking and c/c welcome.

Jeez Robbie, you could have asked him to hold the crime card higher Wink

OK, seriously now, the red marks on his neck where you tried to strangle him are a bit distracting...
He looks thoroughly fed up (probably 'cos you never asked him to take his clothes off)

When do we get to see the side view?

Wink Joking aside, I think this is a good first go. There is a little burn out above his right (left to us) ear, but the lighting gives good modelling on Ian's face.

Looking forward to seeing some good portraits as you progress Smile

Cheers, Goggz

Ha, ha - you should know he always has a serious face on when he has his photo taken. The side image really does look like a mug shot though. I will load that one tomorrow evening.

Talking about taking his clothes off ... we talked about that over dinner and said we should have done some of his chest before his operation!!

I agree with you both about the born out on his right ear - don't think I paid enough attention to that. Will keep an eye out.

Thanks for you both for your comments and your mods Willie.

I think that should have read as follows:

'I agree with you both about the 'burn' out ....'

He doesn't look too happy here, but definitely a nice effort. Well, I see you've had some good suggestions already, so I won't repeat them. I like the idea of a crop.

If you put up the side view I may never talk to you again (or perhaps that should say I will never stop talking to you again Smile)

For a first go with the new set up this is pretty good, considering your model is less than willing. I agree about the slight burn out over my left ear, probably reflection off my scalp. Smile Maybe next time we should turn the lights down a bit further.

Yes he does smile for me Roy - but not to the camera Smile

Thanks for the mod.

Pete, The more we moved the lights away the greater the creases appeared in the backcloth!!

Thanks for you comments.

See you tomorrow at Dunham Massey Pete
