My Girl

By glazzaro  
Good Evening

Well I convinced the daughter to pose again, of course it cost me, off to the pet store right now to buy a guinea pig. I have a young and aspiring capitalist on my hands thatís for sure! Wink So the wife and I had two different concepts for out shots. Check my wifeís shot out, she went for the angelic look, I went for the pose. Back shortly, may even have shots of a guinea pig to post! Will talk to you all soon and see you all out on the site.


My setup when shooting:

1. Two Strobe and two hot lamps. Wireless Commander Nikon SU-800.
2. Black background, 9x12.
3. Studio stool
4. Set the camera to manual mode.
5. Fired off several shots each time, checked the results and then fire off some more.
6. Adjusted lamps and strobes based on levels.

You went for the pose and then to the pet store? LOL - Looks like the battle is lost. Soon it will be the car dealer if you don't watch out! It is a good pose. Very relaxed and natural looking. Weatherwise, The Alaska express is still over California, but that means real clouds and rain so I've managed to get a few new ones!

Excellent work Greg. You are obviously proud of your daughter and this is nice to see. You should also be proud of this image of her too. She has a nice relaxed, natural pose and I like the dark BG. Also like the way the image stands out from the border. Excellent job. click!!
