Please do not embed images in posts unless you took them yourself, as photos are copyright of the original photographer, and they may not appreciate them being posted in forums.

If you want others to see the images, please post a link to the page you found them on instead.

Thanks.

No problem. A lot of people think that if a photo is on the internet, it's OK to use it. But, that's not the case (as all photos are copyright of the original photographer unless they assign it to someone else, copyright notice or not). The main difference is if they registered the photos with the copyright office. If so, they can sue for both actual and punitive damages for unauthorized use of images. If not, they may have a difficult time getting punitive damages.

There are provisions in copyright law for Fair Use of images. But, there are many gray areas.

So, we ask that members do not post any images that they did not take themselves. That way, we're not put into a position of making judgment calls about what's fair use and what's not; or put into a position where we're receiving take down notices from upset photographers.

Bottom line. If you didn't take the photos, please do not embed them in posts here. Post a link to the page you found them on instead.

Thanks.

The second shot exif excerpt:
Camera: Canon
Camera Model: Canon EOS 1000D
Focal Length: 55
Shutter Speed: 1/80
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 100
I would say NOT candle light.

Dark clothing, dark b/g. Set exposure on subject's face, and possibly use negative exposure comp. To get the 'pro look' of deep orange skin tones, set your WB for daylight or cooler.

The first photo was an even faster shutter speed and smaller aperture.

My initial reaction was that north window light was used but that doesn't stand up under closer examination. The shadow line from the scarf in the 1st photo is relatively hard and there are two distinct light sources shown in the eyes. Only one distinct reflection shows in the pupils in the second photo but I think the main light was far enough to the left front to not show in the pupils.

The pictures appear to have been taken inside a fairly dark room, with light from a window. Using WB set to cloudy, will give warmer tone to the photos. Negative exposure compensation, is -EV. Your camera's manual will tell you how to set it. It may not be needed with that lighting, though.
