    We shot this at night, after dark. The subject, an author, wanted an early morning, sunlit, casual, friendly and inviting look.

    I literally had about 3 mins to shoot this as she was checking out of a resort and before she got in a cab for the airport. So, the plan went bye-bye and I grabbed what I could in the time available. One light and a prayer...

    Please feel free to critique any and all of my photos so I can get get better.

    These were shot with a D300, then heavily post processed. All were first converted to B&W then colorized with Corel Painter, along with other assorted tricks and mischief with PS and Topaz
    Main camera left 8" Fresnel (strobe), fill (in the wrong place due to space) even further camera left 8' octabox, hair/kickers 2- 5' strip boxes high camera right and directly behind subject


    fill flash from speedlight on flipflash bracket


    4" Phillips Fresnel Hotlights for main and kick, fill is D800 set to auto fill with yellow topped Fong tupperware contraption to convert to tungsten (or close)


    Same as above

    @ David Labota above.

    Wow! That is an amazing image from a compact camera. No blown highlights in the windows, nice tonal gradation, I seriously thought this was medium format film when I first saw it..
