dmacmillan-I set up the lighting for the long shot, but when I moved in tighter I didn't move the main light with me. In hind sight I should have and I appreciate the advice. This is why I post in the forums. Thanks for the posing tip as well. Your post is made in a very helpful way and I appreciate you and others that have responded for taking the time.
elliotkramer-You bring up a very interesting point which I think is worthy of it's own discussion so I'll be starting a thread shortly asking for other opinions too.
Personally I don't mind the artificial light. I'm not trying to fool anyone or simulate the sun. It's obvious that strobes were used and I'm ok with that. More times than not the available light isn't optimum and using strobes will give me much better odds of coming home with images of a well lit subject.
Regarding Lisa's natural lighting.....I love her work and if I could get the same results I would sell my strobes tomorrow. But it's just not practical, for me at least, to think I'm going to achieve Lisa-Like quality (I'm not even sure she's really a human)
Please look for my thread http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1239786 seeking different opinions on strobe vs. natural light. It will be interesting to see what others think.
Lisa-I already know what your preference is, but I'm hoping you join the discussion.
