More studio portraits
1/125 at f/11, ISO 200, Nikon 105mm f/2.8 Micro
Photogenic strobe at 1/8 power camera left with strip box, another strobe camera right (for the background) set at 1/16 power with barn doors and a purple gel.
1/125 at f/11, ISO 200, Nikon AF 50mm f/1.4
Same strip box (1/8 power) on subject, only now there are two strobes on the background shooting into umbrellas, strobes set to 1/2 power each making the the background three stops brighter than subject for a high key.
1/125 at f/11, ISO 200, Nikon AF 180mm f/2.8
One Photogenic strobe with medium soft box placed about 60 degrees camera left and set to 1/8 power for a low key portrait.
1/125 at f/16, ISO 200, Nikon AF 180mm f/2.8
Two Photogenic strobes, main light with (1/8 power) a snoot to focus the light on the camera, another strobe (1/16 power) with a green gel on barn doors to light the background. A flag was also used to keep the green off of the camera.
Comments and criticism welcome.
Love the DoF on the last one. The green is just like BUTTAH!!
All in all, some really great shots. Just a few nit-picks.
The depth of field with my 180 f/2.8 (equiv of 270mm) is insane, even on a crop body, I cant imagine what it is like on a full frame body. Since it will not AF on my D5000, the only way to truly get critical focus at f/4 and bigger is the use live view, zoom in and adjust it, all while on a tripod of course, lol.
