    Default 1st attempt with lighting setup

    My fil works for Lifetouch part tme and brought his setup in for me to play with. It's pretty darn cool - 2 shoot-thru umbrellas (white lightning 800) and a hair light and then a sensor thing that goes on my camera to set off the lights. Is it obvious I'm clueless about lighting??? Anyway - it was fun to mess with although I had VERY unwilling subjects. Would love some cc on everything.

    Oh, and I think I finally figured out sharpen for web, so woud love any comments on that as well!

    Brylee refused to sit on the setup unless she could wear her brother's hat...

    The lighting looks great!! The images look oversharpened though.. try fading it a bit..

    I agree with over sharpening, but I know nothing about studio setups, so can't comment there. I'm seeing some funky shadows, but since I don't really know what's acceptable, or how to fix it...I have no advice or suggestions.

    I love the pic of your dd!! SO funny! I think they look a tad oversharpened too. and the shadows arent bothering me. Im not digging the way the brown background is meeting the floor tho. Maybe you could get a piece of trim and set it down there next time to cover the seam.

    Yeah - these looked REALLY sharp on my laptop when I posted, but not as much here at work. So weird. Anyway - thanks for the feedback on that, getting closer!

    And as for the floor - I have trim, but was in such a rush to get this done, I completely forgot until I uploaded them and finally noticed - ha. Maybe next time....

    I hate shooting my kids!

    I think the colour & light looks good, agree about the sharpening. Mind you, I am not the person to ask about studio type lighting, I am really struggling.
