Nice one - like your use of lighting in these shots. No.3 is my fave.

Beautiful! Silly question; how do you get the black background? The black really makes the subjects "pop"!

What is the lighting technique? Flash+fast shutter?

G'day Jeff

Well done - you've cracked it this time
#1 is my favourite

I'm guessing that you have used -1EV or -2EV & direct / over the subject lighting to achieve the background ... ?


Regards, Phil

csa, xHassan, PatrickRankin, and Phil:

The subjects were already in a shady area under some big pine trees and the natural sun light was shining right on the subjects coming from in between the trees.
Images were taken at afternoon (about 1 p.m.), the sunlight coming from a 100 degree angle,
f 5.6 @ 1/250 sec. A bit of PP done for more darkness.

@Phil> you absolutely right on negative EV-1.

Jeff
