My Mug

Testing my lighting setup before my client arrived for headshots.

Strobist info:

1x 550EX @ 1/4, about chest hight, through a DIY grid, full CTO camera right, and feathered to fall off the left side of the face to the rear.

580EXII @ 1/32nd, flagged camera right, no gel. Fired via radio triggers.


Edit: After this image was featured on, I've had untold traffic on my stream. Thanks to all those folks that have fav'd this pic and many others in my stream.

Also, I've been asked by a lot of visitors about the post work that went into creating this photo but I'm afraid there isn't much to tell on that front. All that was done after capture was a ever so slight levels/curves adjustment and a HighPass sharpen at about a .2 or .3 setting.........thats all there was. I hope this helps some.

All the best to you all, and thanks very much for your interest.


Special thanks to DH ( for featuring my photo.
