I haven't posted in a while!
My cousin's son has been playing the violin now for a while and recently was accepted into the junior symphony as 2nd chair violin. The local paper did a story on him and wanted a picture so they asked if I would stop by after work and shoot a few at their house. Here are a few from that shoot. I still have a lot of learning about lighting, posing, etc, but it was a fun experience. I realize I could have benefited from a hair light, an actual background, and remembering my reflector would have been handy too!
Anyway, they are happy.... but I'd like to hear what you all think I did well and what I could improve on.
Lighting for these was SB800 in a LTP softbox as key and a SB900 through an umbrella for fill.
D700 and a 70-200 VRII or 50f/1.4 afd.
1) I really should try an extraction of this to get it on a better background.
