Taken on the promanade at the western end of Fuengirola the weekend before last and today ran it thru lightroom, i'm still going thru an "angle phase" i guess, the sunlight was a bit harsh and the lens was 70/300mm VR

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

This is another one of Justin, taken Friday.

The other was taken last night. In the spirit of this thread, the shot was a triple exposure (a quintuple exposure, actually). I used three spots and a soft box. I shot at 30mm in bulb mode for 67 seconds at F/11. I first exposed the background with two spots for three seconds to allow the upright image to be psuedo-see through. Next I shot the upright figure with a single strobe flash and a snooted spot set at half power with a black scrim to create a shadow on the lower-most part of the exposure (to prevent overlapping with the foreground figure). Then I exposed the bowing figure with a triple strobe flash at full power through a soft box so it would solidify and wash out any background images that might otherwise be seen through it.
The spot and softbox used on the model were set high and to camera left, not quite 90 degrees from the image plane, to create a Rembrandt lighting effect.

Comments are always appreciated.

Very nice effects indeed Afrazier, i like both of them and the previous shot of justin.
This is another of the "girl on the promenade" set, this it needed some cloning as you can see from the original where there is an unwanted head and a bit of shoulder interfering with the angle i wanted... may be it was better with the girl running from left to right, who knows lol!
regards,
Gary

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Thanks Gary. Much appreciated.

With your shot here, can you tell me what your purpose for the skewed perspective is? Obviously it is deliberate. You said that you were trying to achieve that perspective. But was there a specific purpose for it?

Alledgedly to give it a sense of depth because i was high up, although my aperture should have been 4-5, i think it was 8 or higher, the angle is better on the girl below and another i thought originally triangle then box lol...
Next week i'll have calmed down and back to "square on",
regards,
Gary
