NHL, I just saw this post. I agree with Lomita Mike, #2 is a killer shot. This model deserves a medal just for being so dang HOT! And count my vote for natural light as well, at least on these types of shoots. Nicely done!

Thank you everyone...

Victoria is a beautiful model indeed, it's just too bad that I don't have anymore natural light images to share:




->> Will have to plan on shooting some more then!

Hi NHL

I've gotta also say, I love the 2nd photo - her pose and the use of natural light is stunning.

While I admit studio lights can produce amazing effects, always in the back is a (small) voice saying: "It's studio... it's studio". Whereas for some reason when a capture is made in natural light, I seem to be able to focus just on the subject, composition, and lighting with more interest.

Also, the window adds good interest and additional 'focal point' to the photo.

What did you mean when you wrote:
"Too bad my 85mm can't take the glare @ f/1.4: "?

Exif seems stripped - so was this photo taken with another lens as there would be too much flare / loss of contrast with your lens? (Is that the Sigma 85mm f1.4 you're referring to?)

Cheers!

Paul

Hi Paul

The 2nd image was processed from RAW hence the absence of the EXIF.
The lens used was my 85mm f/1.4 G (Minolta's 'G' lenses are equivalent to the Canon 'L' which is now carried over to the Zeiss line), but you can see 'greenish' elongated rectangular glares on the model left side' from the bright window reflection.

It's most visible on her black shirt, and fast lenses are notorious for this at wide open. A lens hood would have help, but I did not recall to put it on...
