Here's a rather impromptu portrait of Brooke, my precocious granddaughter. She loves posing for her grampy.
I used my SU-800 to control my SB 900 in a softbox to camera left, an SB 700 shooting into an umbrella to camera right, and a snooted SB 600 behind and above Brooke to camera left. I also used a silver reflector to fill in the shadow areas under her chin and nose. D7000 was set to manual, all flashes were set to TTL. ISO 200, f7.1 at 1/125th. I was using my 85mm f1.8 AF-D. I am so rusty I forgot to check my aperture and shutter speed. Sometimes you just get lucky!
I think I was a bit off with the direction of the snoot as too much light spilled onto her nose area, casting a bit of shadow on her right eye. Ah well, this was a training session. I had fun doing it and I am getting more comfortable setting up and shooting with my small studio.
I did a bit of PP with PS 5 and Portrait Pro Studio. I am not adept at PP, but I gave it a shot.
