The lighting looks just right.. esp considering your not using studio strobes but the nice thing even with that temp setup is that your able to see how the light is falling on the models which is always handy. The models look fab and the detail composition is spot on too.

Cheers

Harj

Thank you Harj, there are pros and cons of using constant light but I prefer my strobes, makes the stress and pain more bearable

Thank you Mark for your feedback,

The lightning in the room was very challenging, on the ceiling I had tungsten lights that I can't turn it off and a big window hitting winter blue light from the left side and in combination with a dim light from the video lamps was a dangerous combination that could make a nightmare to adjust WB in RAW and mess the skin tones. That's why I decided to use 2 left, 2 right lamps and one hitting the background to faded or block the other light sources.

Thank you for your advice.

LOL.....!!! Steven,

That is a great portrait picture, for the next time you should remove the dry grass and brush his fur before shooting your camera.

Let us know the results please.

Good suggestion Marcelo, but since you have all the experience shooting models, I would prefer that you go first and show me how to brush the fur. I will take photos of you doing it for a future educational tool. I bet everyone on the forum would enjoy those shots. I will even buy your ticket into Busch gardens for that!

Thank you for your courtesy, make sure you use the right settings and flash to shoot the action.

Busch Gardens....???? I thought you just used the bathroom mirror..

Marcelo, I was thinking of these shots of yours hand Harj's while in the library this morning (the library with the porcelain seating) looking through my wives latest Vanity Fare/fair?

Some of the shots have wonderful settings, some have wonderful models, some of the models look downright "scary" but ALL have wonderful photographs.

As an aside though "I couldn't tell you what they were selling."

No, I did like the Loius Vuiton for their African scenery and models carrying their product.

My point is that I didn't see were yours or Harj's photos would appear remiss on those pages.

Amazing shots Marcello.
I can not see what could be better on them.
For me this is really studio quality!!!

The marketing this magazine use sometimes is a little confuse, you just see a picture of models with tons of make up and accessories with the brand name, but you don't know if they are selling the fragrance line, clothes or make up... a sophisticated version of glamour marketing.

I supose this method works but only if you care enough to look it up. Me, I just look at the pretty pictures.
