I'm one of the youth leaders at our church working with the 14-18 year olds so for a change we decided to give them a studio evening, so I dragged my setup into the church and in an hour took as many shots as possible. This was pretty crazy as there was not real chance to pose them so went for the "every time I say change, strike a new pose" method!!

They had a good time so that's what counts, and I was worn out LOL.

Taken with Canon 5D with 24-105mm f4 L IS, 2 Elinchrom D-Lite 2 with soft boxes for main lighting and 2 microblitz mini-lights to illuminate the paper roll.

Not that it matters, but I shoot tethered using Breeze Systems DSLR Remote Pro to get instant views of the work, this is more for those watching than for me as I didn't have much time to check apart from confirming exposure.

Thanks for looking, and comments, critiques appreciated.

Mark1616,

All cool shots and very well done, I'm sure the kids will be thrilled when they get the prints. You did some like these at the youth center before, the kids must really look forward to you showing up with camera in hand.

Very nice work! And it looks like everyone enjoyed themselves. You can't ask for more than that.

Thanks guys.

The last ones I did were to raise money and it was adults and youth, these were just for a fun evening for them (well the ones who like to have a laugh in front of the camera).

Yep, they really enjoyed themselves and they like what they have seen.

Nice poses and shots, on a critical viewpoint lighting or exposure

seems excessive at least on my lcd monitor with a graduation of tones

missing..could be just my monitor though..on a cathode tube monitor

Thanks Musket, I think you are right and it's a combination of things. I was saying to JohnG in another thread that I've been working on my new laptop and not sorted things properly. Also I couldn't control this environment as much as I would have liked due to time so taking #4 as an example, they had gone too far back and were picking up additional lighting from the two lights set to blow out the background.

The monitor issue I hope to sort soon (well think it is) and as for the lighting, I think I will nail their feet to the floor LOL :lol:

Nice series Mark. My suggestion would be to spot heal skin blemishes.

I like your set-up. It works very well and you have the ability to produce a very professional product.

Thanks Kevin,

Yes you are right, I was too lazy to sort out all the spotty youth as they were nagging me to get them on the site for viewing! Although when they want prints I will fix them a little.

How are things going with you? Oh, in case you didn't sport it in other areas my 1D mkIII arrived today!! :-):G

Now I'm jealous! My 20d is pushed to the limits but still put'n 'em out. Glad to hear of your new baby! Now there'll be no catching up to you.

Cheers friend!

LOL, well, you know what it's like, I would love some new glass now LOL. Hoping to take it out this afternoon for a play but we will see if I get a chance. It's soooooo nice though, don't go and play with one unless you want to spend the money
