Portrait in Fur. Florida

Extremely complex lighting.


Well... actually.




Natural light with a little help from some white cardboard.


But--- I coulda lit it! I coulda. I coulda used about eleventyeight profoters and some speedythingies... man - I coulda kicked some serious FLASH stuff. I coulda had every house feelin' the pain of dimmed lights, man.


I coulda.


Just forgot where my sync thingy was...


Dang it.

    I'm favouriting this almost exclusively for the commentary Don.

    Photos nice too though.

    Gorgeous. Flash? What's that?

    Great shot. I am a proponent of the KISS principal with lighting and this shot shows why.
  • Steve Gray 4y

    Can't fail using (faux) fur to frame the face.

    beautiful lady
  • Andy Poupart 4y

    Yeah, this would have been sooo much better with more cowbell flash.

    Don, You nicely blended the face, maintained the texture of the fur, hair and the vinyl/ leather coat.

    Great shot Don. I love women in fur. :-)
  • James Lee 4y

    Dang. If you had used a sychronawhatchacallit, then I could try to emulate this. But cardboard? Where am I going to find cardboard???
