No Diffuser

This and the following two pictures were taken as a partial answer to a question by William Thorsby of the Canondigitalphoto yahoo group regarding the merits and exposures with the Gary Fong Lightsphere. Not having a human model available, I enlisted the aid of Ricky. This shot has the 580ex pointed directly at Ricky with the exposure compensation of the unit at +2/3. Click on "next" to see the results with the Lightsphere in place. The picture after that shows the results with a Lumiquest Softbox in place. All pictures were taken in raw mode and had the color adjusted to 5250K. It's interesting to note that even though all were adjusted to 5250K, this image, which had no diffuser on it is decidedly cooler in tone. (I didn't adjust the tint on any of them.)
