It didn't hurt that I promised a trip to Tim Hortons.

    Shot with E3, 50-200 SWD lens at 50mm. Colour of the barn behind her was saturated more and then I brightened her face a little with the brush in Lightroom.
    I like the colors and sitter's expression. Many of the best photos are ones that aren't textbook perfect. I hope to have one to post soon.

    Keep shooting,

    this is a good friend (and colleague) of mine here in poland. i shot this at my birthday get-together at a local watering spot. i love to take her picture (sometimes much to her chagrin), she's a great sport and is always expressive.

    this was with my e-520 and zuiko 50mm f:1.8 wide open.

    cheers !

    This is a photo of my my mom and I that I took a few months ago.She is at her last days with a brain tumor and is close to losing her battle.
    This is by far the best photo of us together.She did not want her pic taken, so I promised my big head would hide most of hers.
    Taken with a E-410 and 14-42 nat light and remote shutter release, pp in bibble and psp X1.

    This is one of my Dad, I love it and it is still one of my favourite photos but my Mum just thinks it is creepy.

    Shot using the 50-200mm workhorse.

    Last night I got a last minute request to shoot a business portrait for an Engineer. I very seldom get a chance to photograph men, so this was something different for me. This image is to be used on a business web site.

    All comments welcome.

    Very nice, Lawrence.

    My only (very small) quibble is that the second catch light in his right eye (camera left) is a bit distracting, because there isn't a matching one in his other eye. I'm probably only noticing it because the lighting is otherwise darn-near perfect, and very flattering overall. (Your request for comments also prompted me to look the portrait over with a more critical eye.)

    If it were during the shoot, I might move the fill light further to camera left to eliminate the second catch light (or move it off the iris and on to the sclera, where it would be much less noticeable). Post-shoot, I'd think about touching it up in PS, perhaps by cloning a bit of iris from the other eye, or just selectively darkening that spot a bit to take the second catch light down a peg or two in brightness. (I always forget whether that's called "dodging" or "burning"....)

    Bottom line: it's a darn nice portrait!

    To improve my own photography, I've been following David "Strobist" Hobby's advice to try to reconstruct the lighting setup for other people's photos. If you can confirm or correct my analysis and conclusions about your setup for this portrait, I'd appreciate it:

    Your background lighting is very smooth and even, there's a diffuse highlight on his forehead, and what appears to be a rectangular catch light in both eyes. I'm guessing that he was standing about 4-5 feet in front of a grey seamless background paper, with his left foot on a stool, and that he was primarily lit by a large softbox that was placed high and a little bit to camera right.

    The white edge providing separation of his left side (camera right), and the lack of shadows on the background, lead me to believe that there's a large reflector or a relatively diffuse light source (but probably a reflector of some sort) behind him but in front of the background, located out of frame to camera right.

    The second catch light (and its shape, size, and position) lead me to suspect a second strobe, dialed down a few stops from the main strobe's level. It's located low and to camera left, and appears to have only a small diffuser if any (probably none), and it is aimed more towards the other reflector (which is to camera left, opposite the first reflector) to mainly illuminate the background rather than being aimed directly towards the subject.

    I'm pretty sure that this is just a two-light setup: main in softbox, fill either bare or with just a small diffuser, reflectors to both sides for smooth even background and separation lighting.

    How close did I come?

    Thanks for sharing,

    - Rick D.
