[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Sharon... I'm just invited from my brother in-law group photo session. While watching them I can't stop myself to take a few shots... since my gears are always with me I set it up and ask for some paused...
Using my 2 flashes SB800 and SB900 with attached pocket wizard on it...

To All TL's thanks for dropping by your comments highly appreciated...

Très beau portrait de cette belle dame, elle a un super regard et le captage est parfait, avec de belles couleurs.

bravo et amitié


Hi Servando

A beautiful model! You're lucky to have someone so cute to work with.

I think your lighting here could be better though ... the biggest issue is that your flashes are too close to the model.

The result is a strong highlight on her forehead and the bridge of her nose, but with a big falloff in lighting levels by the time we look to her arm at the lower left.

The flash on the right is also too harsh in my opinion, and not well placed. There is a strong highlight on her left cheek and a strong curved shadow below it, and more light/shadow on her breast lower down. If that light was placed further behind her, or bounced off a wall or reflector for a weaker, more diffuse effect, I think it would work better.

The luxury of an additional light on the backdrop to create a clean white background would be nice, but not essential.

keep practicing, keep shooting!


I must say and admit that this is indeed a great shot. Liked the contrast and the colours. The expressions are also perfect. Sharon would treasure this picture her entire lifetime. tfs.

pwede na rin palang pang portrait yung 17-35.
