    5DMKII + 85mm f/1.8. 1/200 @ f/4.0, ISO 100. 430EX +umbrella. MUA: Mika.

    Second of three shoots I shot on Saturday using the same one-strobe set-up.

    I don't often photograph guys, so I often forget how tall they are. I had to get Jay to crouch down and lean against a wall so I could get a decent angle and even then i was on my tippy-toes. I usually carry a little stepping stool, but i forgot and unfortunately 5" heels aren't practical photographer's shoes. :P

      5" heels work for my wife, the better half of our team. Nice shot.

      Love the lighting here Lisa. And some may say why crop the head but I like it. It fits it nicely.

      Very nice Lisa. Do you ever use ND filters so that you can shoot with a shallow DOF and still use the lights?

      lol @ the description!!

      That 85mm 1.8 gives great bokeh. Nice portrait.

      great shot.
      I totally sympathize, I'm 5'3" at best and find I have to do the tippy toe thing too! I too have a little step stool, for those occasions :-)

      Great job! (I can't imagine myself shooting when in heels so you're heroine))).
