I had the privelege to meet up with my Godfathers son today before they fly back to India and took my E1 +14-54 with me to see if I could test out how good it would be in my hands for doing portraits.



2. used my Sunpak 383 with this shot


3. An indoor by the window shot



The amount of detail in the RAW file is superb - well in my opinion anyway :blah: but I've a lot to learn with doing portraits - need to build that communication thingy up.

Cheers

:O :?

HarjTT,

I like them all. Nice to see the sunpak 383 to be a very versatile flash.

Hi Donna, Tom, Riley

Hey thanks for the comments which are much appreciated. I was suprised how well the 383 works with the E1, much better than with my FZ10. However, I think I'll be getting the FL50 at some stage just to make things easier when having to use a flash.

Need to practice a lot more - esp cropping the shot in close and working the light better. I think i should have used a white card or something else as a reflector for no2 & 3 just to lighten up the rightside of the face a wee bit and get rid of the shadows.

Cheers

HarjTT

Great white ballance and lighting. A very well done shot both technically and creatively! Very impressed. I like the 3rd traditional one the most.

harjTT,

All three are nice shots, but number three is the very best of the lot - IMO.
