Hi,
I love when you show photo like "what is going on behind the camera" so that we can see and learn something from this "backstage photos".......

#1 photo is sooooooooooooo good.... Like the light which is directly to her forehead and specialy when is at the edge just to be overexpossed...:-)

Like this motion photo... #3. What a perfect moment...Do you have one shot at right moment or you shoot continious (like 5 shoots) and choose the best one....

Thanks for #2 photo
Zak

Hey frank

i really like photo 1, fantastic look and feel to it. And also appreciate phto 2 for giving a little glimpse into your lighting setup.

My goal at the mo is to produce images half as good as your then move fwd from there. So any help with ur new website or posts will be greatly appreciated.



cheers frank
KEN

Great shots as always Frank. Thanks for the behind the scenes. What are you lighting the backdrop with? (I assume it's a snooted strobe.) Also, do you use a flash meter for each setup or are you working off your camera's LCD/histogram?

Hi,
I depends on what I want with the light.
When I use the lights as in photo 1 I will eyeball the fill in's and background lights, the main light is measured with a Sekonic L358 because I want the main/key light to be perfect.

When I do portraits I measure every light.

The backgrounds are often lit by a normal strobe with a grid and barndoors.

I find picture 4 amazing. You have Marie with a black shirt, black sweater on a black background but the lighting you use gives each piece of clothing detail. There is no melting away in pure black. Very well done. The only thing I would fix is the lint on the sweather.

Really nice shots, very pretty girl. She reminds me of one of our Australian actors, Libby Tanner only a younger version, what do you think

Proficient and lovley Frank. Lighting is cool, I like what you did with her closeup, has kind of a mystery to it. Your model is loveley and natural. I think the one of her in the black top is a bit weak. The rest of them I wold say are 10s. Great job. I wanted to point out how nice the background light works to separate the model from backdrop. I totally dig what you did with the eye lights. Brings out those killer eyes. Frank Great job.
