I purchased my first studio light yesterday which is the SystemPro CoolLight 3-in-1 Octagonal Softbox. But of course I had to buy the stand and bulbs, but I also wanted to get something for my Speedlight. I picked up a small stand, a clamp for a hot shoe flash as well as a 45" shoot through umbrella. So now I'm set with something for indoors as well as a portable setup for outdoors.
Anyhow, Shari was nice enough to let me shoot her for a few before I had break down the studio and put her dining room back to normal. I shot her with an 85mm f/1.4D on my Nikon D300S on a tripod. My camera settings were ISO 200, 1/60th of a second at f/4.
I used Lightroom 3 for post processing which included adjusting the clarity and luminance, whitening/sharpening the eyes and softening her skin. I think I also added just a little vignette to finish the set. So there you have it :)
