Default My first attempt in a studio

A few from Saturday at 'Model Studios' in Bury. These were just lit
with a single softbox and that chair couldnt have been easy to look
glamorous in but she certainly made it look that way.

A few skin highlights i know but i'm really chuffed with all the shots i got...

These are straight out of the camera, just re-sized

Nice work Rob. I do not know much about studio shooting or lighting for that matter. Heck, I don't even know much about flash. In saying this, the only thing that bothers me are the cut off limbs on some. However, that first looks really good to me

Me neither...

Everything I know about fashion and studio work was learned while renting my dog out for a camera brochure.

But Robs problem is that he knows about as much as we do. Looking at fashion sites, they use "soft" lighting, keep down the contrast, even if the image is sharp. Use lighting to hide flaws in features, and regard the kind of reflections we see as the kiss of death.

I prefer the last two images simply because the lighting is better.

If I was doing this kind of work I would spend a lot of time looking at fashion shoots, such as can be found here:
