Great photo plc001. Your daughter is stunning and I really like the job you did with this photo. The lighting is terrific, especially on the hair. Did you use any off camera lighting or is this with built in flash? Also, what post processing was involved?

For a beginner this looks very professional.

Thanks! I used the SB600 with a white bounce diffuser plus the light from the window coming from the left. Cropped and skewed, I guess I did not have the camera level. So much to think about it!!!!

I have a SB-600 also. Still getting to know it. What diffuser did you use? Does it mount right on the speedlight? Where did you get it?The soft light and the highlights in the hair on this photo is what grabbed my attention.

Hi Dave,

This probably should be moved to studio/portrait photography, but truthfully I like the spirit of your post, trying to get our members to think past the equipment a little and focus on something in front of the camera

I'd appreciate it if we could keep it on-topic, which is to say, only pictures taken with D40, D40x, D50, or D60. Thanks.

lol,

I almost asked the same thing. It does not preview but it post the image if you just type the url, but I think the () are giving you a hard time.

If you're trying to use straight HTML, replace the angled brackets ‹ and › with square ones [ and ]. See if that works.

Hi William,

You need to be Silver level member or higher to place a picture in your post. Basic members can link to externally hosted pics, but it will show in your post as a link, not as a photo.

Eyes like that can afford to be posted a little larger.

What is the photographic definition of a portrait? I have thousands of images of the family, but which would be considered portraits?

Can a portrait have two people, etc? Thanks.

Portraits can be studio or setting posed images of people like you see all the time...or they can be casual, natural and spontaneous...like you see more often!

Post what you have...the humorous image I posted at the beginning was to loosen up any misconceptions people may have as to what a portrait is or is not.

We want to see "people" shots where the person is clearly the main subject.

Looking forward to more images!

Here is one for you...
She used to come into my place of business and run around wildly. I had to tease her with the camera.
Had to reduce the quality a bit to get the file size down to where it would allow me to upload here...

There should be a subset of this thread for "portraits of

Here's my best portrait shot to date. I was trying out my new SB-600 speedlight for the first time and was very happy with the results even though I really don't know what I'm doing yet. I just put it on the hotshoe and started clicking away. I bounced the flash off the wall to camera left and up a little. I'm just very happy with the quality this gave me compared to the straight on built-in flash; no harsh shadows. It took a little experimenting with shutter speed in aperture priority along with the new flash to get a somewhat descent exposure. Look forward to more practice sessions.

Constructive criticism is always welcome. I'm getting several requests from co-workers for personal and family portraits as well as birthday parties. I want to get good fast.

Excellent shot, good color and light balance.....guess my only critique is the painted eyebrows,lol (perhaps they're tatooed?)

LOL. Yea, they're tattooed. That's pretty common among the asian women I work with. I don't like it at all but it's the norm for them. My camera can't change that but I was very pleased with the color and quality of light on this. I'm very eager to get more experience with my SB-600.

On another forum a lot of us posted photos we took of ourselves using a mirror.

The letters are not backwards because I flipped it in NX2. The shot was wide open at f/2.8 and a fairly slow shutter speed.

Sassy the wonder cat, taking a chill between tearing up wrapping paper and chasing ribbon. Since i missed the Xmas post contest, I figured I'd post this candid shot here......nursing a torn rotater cuff in my right shoulder, and it's taking a toll on my shooting, (and my patience...),Cortisone shot did wonders though!

Great colors and well exposed. I'd be curious to see your home-made diffuser. Post a photo of it if you have time. I've been thinking about buying a diffuser for my SB-600.

Thanks for the comments, as I've played with various designs on this theme, I find that you can bounce a lot of the light up and out by just bending the diffuser forward or back, or making slightly different shapes...Again, a poor man's low tech solution, but quite effective and easy to make..... here's the link to the original post- Greg

I'll have to try the mirror shot later tonight. for now, here is a portrait, though not a person. It's my dog Kaija! (i previously posted this in the Pets forum down below, but I like this one a lot.) I'll have to chose which portrait of of my daughter to post a little later! Seeing what can be done with bounced flash, I need to get an SB-600...

We don't get enough snow for it to be worthwhile - this is the first for some years. In some areas they're even running out of road grit.

A Canadian cyber-pal of mine sent me some pictures of snowdrifts up Saskatchewan way - which put our recent flurry in perspective!

Yeah, my daughter goes to school in Maine, and we live in Connecticut...we've had over 3.5 feet of snow this Winter so far......and much of it still on the ground. Today it's quite warm and windy though so I'm hoping it will MELT! The older I get, the more I hate it,.....except for the photographic value...lol

Thanks Greg.

Flash bounced on the ceiling. They really grow so fast, you're right. I was showing pictures of my son to a colleague last week and I realized how much he had grown in the last few months...

I convinced my daughter to sit still for a few seconds (tough to do). I would have liked a less-distracting background, but beggars can't be choosers...

Portrait of my daughter and her dog, Oreo:



Taken with my D50, 50mm and off camera SB-800 with poverty wizard camera left, reflector camera right and window behind her to the right. I still need more work with my flashes and reflectors to get the light more even, but I really like the overall picture.

Thanks.

Nice pose, and overall feel of the photo. I don't think the lighting is too bad. The natural light from the window ads a nice intimate touch to the shot. One question I had is about the background. It seems a little busy. If you opened up to 2.8 or higher (not sure if it would end up throwing the dog out of focus if you went that far) it might help reduce that.

Thanks for the comments! The background was our fireplace at Christmas. I did keep it at around f/4.5 to keep the dog as much in focus as possible! I would love to retake with a backdrop to reduce the clutter.

Thanks again for the comments, I really appreciate it.

#66. "RE: Post your Portraits! - Tet in Des Moines"
In response to Reply # 0


Des Moines, US
          

I posted a portrait earlier in this thread of my Laotion friend Deng but wanted to add a link to this shot since it relates to what I've been learning about shooting in manual mode on my D60, using my SB-600 and using a bounce card that I discovered while browsing one of the Nikonian forums. The link is to the photo on my flickr page. The composition is what I like about the photo, a shot of Vietnamese women during a dance during a Tet celebration. But the noise was a big problem. I think I have a fairly good handle one what I did wrong with this but welcome constructive criticism. I'm trying to learn.

Hi, John...

You did a good job with that photo! After reading the difficulties you were having, all I can say is welcome to the club. We are all there at one time or another and that is part of photography... meeting those challenges and sometimes they can drive you crazy!

I like the image. Flash photography is difficult so be proud you got that one and, hopefully, more keepers.

thanks for posting,

dave

Thanks for commenting Dave. I'm trying not to be too discouraged since I have such little experience using a speedlight, or any type of strobe for that matter beyond the built-in flash.

I'm just wondering if I should be getting more experience first with just the basic D60 without trying to learn how to use a speedlight to boot. Maybe I should have spent more time seeing what I could do in manual mode with just the available light and then perhaps experimenting with the built-in flash, and finally trying out the SB-600.

I guess I'm kind of answering my own question. I know I need to get more experience in general before diving into a speedlight. But I guess I'm a little curious to hear from others on how they graduated to more advanced lighting techniques.

Thanks again Dave.

Here's one I took as an example for a Strobist lighting workshop I ran for the University of York Photography society.

Taken on my D50 with the 55-200 lens. One SB600 going though a shoot-through umbrella camera right and a SB-24 with a CTO gel on it to light the background.



Cheers,

Cute pic with the black background, I guess I'm just a little sorry that you've cut off the top of his head a bit....those few missing hairs add to his character....and complete the portrait.....I see a lot of people wanting to fill the frame, but filling it just a tad too much to the point of cutting out part of the subject.

I know it's over-exposed, but I played around with it and I prefer it like this. I'm calling it high-key lighting.



Why does nobody ever warn you when the cake's coming? I had seconds to get the camera ready, ended up a good stop under, and had to rip the bejaysus out of it in Capture NX!

As we can post pictures of cats in this...

...I was very lucky to get a nice sum of money from my mother-in-law for my birthday. She instructed me to actually buy something, not just stick it in the bank. I needed no second invitation, so got a Gitzo tripod. Now, my cat just loves boxes and simply couldn't wait to wriggle into the one the tripod came in! I tried cropping it a bit, but I think you lose a bit of perspective of just how narrow and long the box is.

Taken with a D40X and an SB600, 18-200mm at 18mm, ISO200.
