Ambra up close

A quick snap of Ambra using a light setup for Elouise (if I've misspelt that, I'm sure someone will correct me).

Strobist: SB-26 into silver umbrella, close to subject, camera right. SB-600 with blue gel camera left behind subject, Vivitar 285 HV camera right on floor behind subject with red gel.

    Very nice lighting there, and nice shadows on the girl's face.
    The background looks a little busy IMO. Perhaps an 85/1.2 would have helped here. ;-)

    Or possibly just more space so I could have shot longer :P
    Thanks John. This was just after the bank-robber shot and thus I'd had "my" shot so was assisting the other members of my group and thought I'd take a couple while at it.

    Nice light graduation, maybe a rim on her right shoulder to bounce her out of the dark b'ground??

    Great lighting, bokeh, model, clarity. What more can I say. Well done Dave!! : ))

    Yeah that would have been nice, alas, all my flashes were in use and we didn't have another GI or optical trigger for one of the other group members flashes.
    Thanks Adam.
    Thanks Gareth :)
