THE GREAT PORTRAIT SERIES-0002 SETUP


This is the setup photo from little Jim's shot..
Yes, this is my living room....
I used a piece of white fabric stretced to my DIY backround holder, for the backround.
Three lights were used.
1) Canon 550EX behind the white fabric, mounted on a small tripod.
Manual mode, 1/4 power.
I wanted to blow out the fabric, so i can have a clear white backround, and smooth backlight.Like an enormous softbox.


2) Canon 580EX mounted on a tripod, to the camera's left, reflected of the white ceiling, so i can have uniform light on the whole subject.
Manual mode, 1/2 power.

3) Canon 580EX II, mounted on a tripod to the camera's right, shot through a white 32" umbrella.
Since little Jim was playing with his head, i placed this flash for fill in his face, so i don't get shadows under his little eyes.
Manual mode, 1/4 power.

The power for the three strobes came from three sets of the MAXA POWEREX rechargable batteries (see previous post). I have to report that i was shooting for about 45' (160 photos) and the power was the same, without waiting for the strobes to load.At least i didn't feel it.Nothing bothered me.

Camera: Canon Eos 5D, manual mode, AWB, 1/160, f:9, shooting on RAW at ISO 200
Lens: Canon 70-200mm L, f:2.8

The strobes were triggered with the Canon ST-E2 transmitter.

Post Process:Photoshop CS3 (Camera RAW) including Levels, Curves, Cloning the fabric to match with the foreground, Blur, and the final B/W conversion.

Have a great weekend..

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.gertantis.ru]legal buy viagra online[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
