Self portrait

Not the best model I know. But you work with what you got :)

 

I finally found some time to take a similar shot of my wife and baby for our Christmas card. finally got it done. Full results can be seen here

 

Strobist info:

2 70ws strobes, fired at background to blow it out and provide a bit of backlighting (background done in post, wish i could do it naturally).

 

A sb-25 and 24 with better bounce cards to the left and right at 1/4 and 1/8 respectively.

 

white low ceiling provided the hairlight.

 

Some extra sharpening done in post.
