p.1 #1 · A rarely allowed shot


My wife got me an umbrella swivel and shoot through umbrella for an early gift.
Here is a rarely allowed picture of her.

She looks great. She must be proud to have supported your photography here - in more ways than one. Congratulations to you both.

Nice shot. Where was the light placed - from the shadows it looks like it was quite low? Try getting the light higher, this is often a more flattering lighting angle, as long as you still get light into the eyes

I was attempting butterfly lighting however one trigger was giving me trouble.
Turned out the batteries needed replacing.

Since my wife had just got home from work she didn't have a lot of patience for me to keep going.

This was the best one with only a single flash firing. This flash was actually about 6 ft high but set on low power and about 5-6 feet away

Or maybe that was the lower flash firing? I see what you mean by shadows.

Hi,
Quick Comments:

Light too low.

Put the light off axis to camera.

put the flash closer to her face next time. Remember, the closer the flash, and the larger the source, the softer the light will be.

Nice shot. My wife also supports me in this endeavor. Go to the lumber yard, and grab a 3/4 inch 4X8 sheet of Styrofoam foil coated insulation. Paint it white on one side and black or leave silver, on the other. Place it on the other side of the shot, the white side will help fill in shadows. Some people call them V flats. The good thing is, you can cut it to whatever size you want, like 3 by 4 or something.

definitely the lower flash firing. this is called monster lighting, when the shadows are pushing up. Just do as the
others said, get the light up higher, and you'll be in much better shape.
