Studio, Portrait, Still Life, Lighting Equipment and Technique Continuous and Strobe Lighting. (The Sun is considered continuous!) Great ideas are really ten a penny! Technique in setting up the subject is, of course, essential. However, the ability to bring out form, texture, tonality and color is where the skill in lighting provides all the keys to engraving one's ideas on the delivered picture.

...and a voice says, "Don't get me started"!

Well, this sight does give the feeling of severe cold. It's pretty harsh having the girl work in the cold. I do like the picture of her posing for the camera even more! It's much more revealing about our ideas and motivations as photographers, mostly men and the needs of the model and the audience that likes our work.

I appreciate this. Hope she had a good hot drink afterwards!

Asher

Thanks. She was actually not shot outside. The behind the scenes shot was made to make the portrait one believable =) So she was shot in my home and then the flash and stands was shot in the studio too, and later placed in a photo from the outside. Strange idea but fun to do. And warm all the time =).

Thanks to Jerome for reminding us! The technique here is masterful and totally invisible! I enjoy this especially as it is something that is demanding and far better than I routinely deliver!

Its a hard life being a model subjecting yourself to such cold conditions. Both shots are really good!

The model is beautiful...the digital work to an untrained eye can be deceiving ...well executed!!
