    Default Thunder Gray Seamless shoot

    Sorry I have not posted here for awhile, getting ready for my scheduled c-section next week.... aaahhhh...

    Anyways, I took several photos of my DHs friends on my Thunder Gray seamless paper with my speedlight. CC always welcome.

    Settings for all: f3.5, SS 1/160, ISO 250

    I think you def need some plexi or something to prevent the standing wrinkles. Lighting seems a bit weird, there's a strange bit above first ones shoulder and same about the second (who looks like a hotty btw ) and also behind his knees. I see it in your siggy too.

    Jealous of all your subjects Love the thunder gray. Good luck with your cs and can't wait for your newborn pics

    I love the thunder gray, just looks uneven in spots like LJ said. I would love to have that background color to show off lots of fun little kid colors. Your subjects look good!!

    I applied edge burn and was using a speedlight was not shooting thru my umbrella, that's probably why lighting was uneven. I thought it added a bit of texture to the seamless paper. hehe..

    I think it's awesome there's no glare on the first guy's glasses. I'm wishing the crop wasn't so close to his sleeve on the left (his right). But the lighting looks good directly on the guys and I think the focus is good (although my eyes are telling me that the first guy's face is a little soft. when I bring my face closer to my monitor, he seems okay. I think I might just be too tired).

    #1 seems to be a bit soft to me too. Don't take my word for it though. I don't know what I am talking about!
    #2 I like this one. I don't think the wrinkles look that bad and I'm okay with the uneven gray, I think it adds texture too. It doesn't bother me.

    Gotta love your DS doing the "manly" pose too! He's a doll!

    I actually like the uneven lighting - like you said, it adds a bit of 'texture' to the shot, especially w/ the edge burn.

    #1 is my favorite - the crinkled paper on the floor in #2 is a tad distracting.

    You might try adding some additional texture to them both ... it might really deepen the look and disguise the wrinkles some in #2.

    Good luck next week! I can't believe you're already getting ready for that ... seems like you JUST announced your pg.

    Best,
