    I have been blabbing advice to newnan3 today, and thought I would share a couple of images from a project I am working on. I have known this model for a while now and we embarked on a personal long term project to shoot a single model yet gain as many different unique themes and looks in each set.

    Here are just a few from May/June:

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/200s f/5.6 - SB-800 fired 1/16 power into a 60cm softbox.

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 400 1/200s f/4 - SB-800 bare flash bounced of ceiling at 1/2 power.

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/1600s f/2.8 - Reflector kicking a bit of fill back up

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/125s f/4 - No modifer

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/1000s f/4 - Reflector kicking a bit of fill into face

    D700 - ISO 400 1/250s f/5.6 - SB-800 grided at 1/16 power (I think)

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/60s f/4 - SB-800 bounced into a 70cm Trigrip Reflector at 1/16 power

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/60s f/4 - SB-800 bounced into a 70cm Trigrip Reflector at 1/16 power

    [​IMG]
    D700 - ISO 200 1/250s f/13 - SB-800 bareflash on stand (This shoot has convinced me to get a ND8 filter, this would have been gorgeous at F4)

    From the first set, I really like 2 and 6. They really grabbed me.

    From the second set, the last image is just wonderful. Spot on.

    Keep it up.

    Thanks...yep the last image we nailed it I think - that shot alone was worth destroying a one off designer dress lol.

    Interesting you picked 2 and 6 also, both very much my favorites of the project. Shot 2, was a test shot, it was taken in a dingy stairwell from above (obviously) and before that we had a single flash on a stand. I had no idea where to put the stand so I pointed it straight up. Marysia wasnt even ready, and that shot was near enough straight out of the camera.

    The final image that we are using has been softened a bit, but its amazing that you can pull out a shot from nothing :)

    You can find my reasons and justifications for this project here - http://www.cm-photos.co.uk/blog/the-fashion-project/

    Looking more closely, on the second set, I like image 4 too. Almost as much as the last one.
