Re: helo all, check this picture

Good suggestions everyone.

L33t, I love that sexy girl...the lighting setup is what you call butterfly lighting. More info can be foud HERE. The Ghetto Studio is another cheeper way to do it with just one light.

Here are some very helpfull refrences that I think every photographer that uses stobes should use.

Portrait Lighting Cheat Sheet Card

Reflector Card Cheat Sheet

Light Falloff Cheat Sheet Card

There is alot of great info at www.diyphotography.net/. Check it out when you get a chance.

Hope it helps,
-Keven

Re: helo all, check this picture

kill those incandecents, and move your boxes. You may as well pull a car in there and just turn of the headlights and use them instead of the strobes. Move them around, raise them up, try from the side, experiment. maybe tickle your subjects a little to get them to smile, unless either theyre really pissed off or your going for the "Im a badass pissed off refugee moustache sporting 6 toed m'fer look that is so popular today. You may even try hosing him down in that white sheer getup so it sort of becomes like a wet tshirt kind of shoot, show some nip, a little pressed ham, ya know, mix it up. Otherwise what your doing look fantastic for a passport photo.

Jeez. Can I ask what the intent of these photos will be? I think that could help with the specific advice you'll likely get.
