Just two umbrellas
09-JAN-2012

Just two umbrellas

with a 580ex in each. ETTL mode on the flashes. No hair light (made background too light). There is a four tube C50 fluorescent light in the ceiling that acts like a hair light. Image given a "soft blur" with Harald Heim's FocalBlade plug-in. Frame added with Marcia's Frame Action plug-in. I notice that while using my 17-55 lens for this portrait I shot it at a rather wide angle. His nose might have been less prominent with a longer focal length - more towards the 55mm side.

Sweet boy! Looking so regal (for a split second, right....) The background and fabric are perfect for his coloring! Really nice.

I just can't get enough of him. He's absolutely precious!

Stunning portrait of Ricky! You do this lighting perfectly and the background is perfect!

Very pretty portrait. Love the framing too. Is this the backdrop like Janet had? It's a nice color backdrop.

Nose or not, a very nice portrait! I love your framing as well.
