    I love the Olympus 45mm lens! Sharp when stopped down 5.6-8.0.

    Lit by an Einstein monolight with 22" gridded silver ePhoto beauty dish, camera right

    Thanks Arnie!

    It's amazing how the Einstein gridded dish and the Olympus E-PL2 creates this almost illustration-like photos =)

    Hmm, not a lot of comments and critiques. Good or bad? Interesting or not interesting?

    Excellent work! This is impressive, especially coming from an E-PL2.

    Looks great. And shows how you don't need a humongous dslr and truckload of lights to get great fashion shots

    Thanks guys!

    I just updated the photos on the first two posts with a more grittier, grungier, split-toned version. What do you think?

    Hope you don't mind I just wanted to see if I could throw a bit more light and detail onto the clothes.

    Ironically, the original image was a little closer to that, but I felt that it would be to evenly lit and too warm for the scene that I'm trying to portray, so I used graduated filters to darken all around the model, as well as use split-toning to change the tone

    Actually I like both Joe's original version and lubov's edit.

    lubov's edit makes the model's skin tones shinier to me (especially the face), which results in a slightly more artsy/fashiony look, while Joe's original version is more realistic and gritty.

    Both are good - entirely up to the intended usage of the pics.

    As for the poses:
    - my favorite is the crouching one. Gives it an energy, as if the model is about to leap or charge out at you (that or he's cornered)
    - the one after the crouch where the model is climbing and looking back at the camera is not doing it for me, unfortunately. Looks like he wants to escape the photo shoot ("I've had enough!") :rofl:
