The only problem with this technique is trying to get a sharp photo involves a LOT of trial and error :P The BW shot is a photo of me so i had to get my flat mate to do the lighting in that one. Im keen to hear what you all think / any suggestions for improvement or a simpler method to get the same effect on a budget.
    Your 2nd shot reminds me a lot of the window light SPs I tried yesterday. You might want to try them, but you probably won't have as much time to shine the flashlight without blowing out the pic.

    Mr.Shutterbug, both shots are very good considering the light source. Ive been experimenting with a lot of my stillife shots using a small torch. Your second shot has excellent lighting, especially on your hair. Good exposure time. All round great shot.

    Hi Sharon

    The 50mm/F1.8 is a mighty fine lens, I'm seriously considering starting with it when I get around to buying a dSLR.
    Sorry you couldn't find the Bob Dylan pic, I have a small print copy of it, so I'll try taking a macro shot of it and post it here for you.

    PS: Mr Shutterbug, I like both portraits, although I think the B/W SP is the better photo both from a lighting/exposure and composition point of view. I agree with both Tori and Bynx's comments. I've tried side-lighting from a window for some still lifes in the late afternoon, I wasn't that successful so need much more practice, but it could be an interesting option for portraiture.

    cheers,

    Benjamin

    Some portraits from this weekend. The B&W ones were taken just after sunset. The color ones were taken in bright light in the middle of the day. Not really a good situation for portraits but I figured I'd get some practice using fill flash. I'm still trying to figure out the balance between the flash exposure and the ambient light exposure. Any C&C is appreciated.

    Lukas--I really like the second BW. Obviously she's lovely, but that one really shows off her beauty with it's relaxed and natural feeling. The pose, facial expression, exposure, and BW conversion all work great together.

    Hi Benjamin, that would be wonderful if you could eventually post a shot of the Dylan pic. I really look fwd to it. And I agree, the 50mm 1.8 (1.4 would be better! lol) would be a cracker of a lens to begin with when you buy your dSLR. Which dSLR body are you leaning towards?

    Lukas, personally I like #1 the best, seems the most natural and love the way she is not looking at the camera, but would have preferred her arms not to be folded. Perhaps she could have put them behind her and leaned back against the railing (or something like that, lol)? Not good at critique, know what I like when I see it, but have a hard time explaining why most of the time.

    Jason I love that one of your li'l guy. Adorable!
