Thanks guys, yes in #1 we had good fun trying to get it!! Just wish I had a wider background than 3m.

24Peter, always good to hear from someone who shoots a lot of studio work, how would you suggest I improve, are there any good books or sites giving details of different lighting setups, poses etc?

Mark,

Thanks for sharing your work. It really help's folks like me to see what others do with the camera so I may learn from it. Keep up the good work. I love what you did here.

Bob

Nice,
but use a graycard to set your whitebalance, now the skintones vary per shot.
Working on location is always difficult especially with these kind of settings, you can't freak arround with interesting lights


Greetings,
Frank

Good point, I just left it in auto and that was it. As I don't currently have one is there a preset (sunny or cloudy) that would do the trick???

Thanks.

That would depend on the color temp of your stobes/lights. Use a grey card like Frank suggested or set up your lights at home and experiment with the different presets to get the feel that you want. Some people will set their WB to sunny to get a little warmer color when using flash (as an example).

If you get a grey back drop you can use color gels to change its color with your back light.

Here this site has some pretty good tips.
