This morning I went out to practice a little portrait work. Everybody needs practice you know! Jantina and Elliot came along to give me a hand. Jantina played model, and Elliot played VAL.
VAL means Voice Activated Lightstand. Elliot did good, real good!
Everything in today’s post has been through Lightroom 3 already. Maximum edit time on each of the images was about 30 seconds each. I’ll probably do more work tonight and select some more images. And there are 2 completely un-retouched images presented here. I won’t tell you which ones they are. That wouldn’t be any fun. Leaving you guessing…… 🙂
So there you go! I think these portraits came across nicely and without much to do. I shot with both the Canon 40D and the 5D Mark II. What’s presented in this post is all from the 5D Mark II. All shot with the 24-70mm f/2.8 L series lens. Most images were created with the 580EX II Canon Speedlite with a Lastolite EZY Box. 2 images were shot with natural light. All images were shot on full manual as well.
In total, we shot under 2 hours and popped through 5 different locations. All within a 5 block radius!
