Still trying to decide if I should by an 85mm. My 70-200 just seems so heavy to be using for portraits indoors in a small studio. It also was having a harder time then I thought focusing, even on my D4, but that's another story. Plenty to learn....
I think I may put up a small track light at the back wall to light up a green screen more consistently.
Here's my new website that I designed this weekend, and below are a few of the pics from yesterday.
Great images Steve and congratulations and the best of luck in your new studio... These images are fantastic! I am just starting to re-invent myself and studio from California to Chicago and could use any insight you could offer. I've been mostly medium format/film light commercial, usually on site. Evolution to Digital has been a challenge (and expense) that I didn't totally expect! I also want to expand into portraiture while maintaining the light commercial and architectural aspects. Any insight on mono-lights, constant light, modifiers, and backgrounds would be greatly appreciate... If you have the time! Thanks and much success and prosperity in your new studio! BTW... Did you do your own web sight? What program did you use? Thanks Don

I like the way you posed them...both of your models are beautiful. I just have a problem with the #2 photo? Is it my monitor or your photo? -- It has green unwanted lines around your subject...otherwise, your posing and lighting are good.
I thought the exposure on the first image wasn't bad but the white balance just needed to be set correctly - the re-worked version didn't work for me at all, it just seems to have created a whole bunch of different issues but it's tougher working from Jpeg than RAW as you say.
