The Pose, Part II
I thought I'd post two shots with the same pose, just different models. I didn't realize how much I liked this sort of pose until I saw that I had posed several models in the same thing. Hm.
In my mind, carefully crafted asymetric is better than symetrical. When I took sculpture class in High School, the teacher had us spend a bunch of time gluing strips of colored paper together to make a asymetrical but balanced structure. I didn't really like what came out, but I did take the lesson to heart in life.
So, here she's looking straight at the camera. But you've got the sun coming from one side and the flash coming from the other. I really love how I made her face look.
So, this was the 144PC on my TX's hotshoe and a 383 Super on full blast with no modifiers oposite the sun, optically triggered. This is also a demonstration of sync speed. See With the G7 I can shoot fast enough to blow out the sun at 1/500th, sometimes even faster. But with my TX, I have a maximum sync speed of 1/60th, so I'd need much more power to do the same thing.
The dress is an interesting story. She brought several and I insisted that she wear the most outlandish of the the three. Especially given that she had prefaced it with a "Well, I don't know if this dress is going to work".
