A studio portrait photo from last Tuesday evening at North Cheshire Photographic Society.
There's a larger version of this photo here if you are interested. It also looks better on a white background.
The NCPS has a studio portrait session once a year and Geoff Robinson, who really knows his lighting, organises it and sets everything up for us.
The lighting this year was quite different from last year when Geoff used twin lights and a reflector. The photo on this link is what I got last year with the same camera but a 50mm lens.
This years lighting was very different, with just a single smallish softbox and one reflector, so I found that I needed to do more in post processing than last year. I found the stronger shadows difficult and I had to spend more time balancing the areas of light and shadow across the photo.
