  • agent j loves nyc PRO 6y

    Love the lighting. It's like a magazine shoot the way the background looks almost like a backdrop. Is that a wide angle lens? It looks fine here but I'd like to see a regular angle one with less distortion. Maybe 50mm? I don't really know my lenses...

    Nicely done, really like the silhouettes in the background

    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)
  • Wendy Darling 6y

    I love it!!! seriously! Love!

  • greenie11* 6y

    it looks as if christine and the background were shot seperately, because they both are captured perfectly!!!! so my opinion; very well done david :) really

    Pex, this is great.....really nice balance of ambient from the setting sun and strobe. Actually, now that Im looking at it again, its really cool how well her top goes with the sky. Even though I'm guilty of doing this a lot, I think a crop to put her off center would be the only suggestion I could offer.

    Super lighting, I'd say you nailed it!
  • Katrina Lui PRO 6y

    Now I really want to learn more about lighting. This is perfectly exposed! I love the colors of the sky in the background.
  • Kevin Lau PRO 6y

    I think you have outdone yourself on your first attempt! beautifully executed! If you can afford another strobe, you can add rim light to separate her from the background.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • Kayode Okeyode PRO 6y

    Very nice exposure against the New York sunset
  • Anthony Espinoza 6y

    I'v looked at all three of these shots and feel torn between the "2nd" and this cover of Vogue you have here the backdrop gives a mellow and smooth visual, You and bellasqueeza really make me want to learn proper lighting in a big, bad way nice work here Mr.P
