    This was shot on a white seamless with two Elinchrome bouncing blowing out the seamless. The model is lit with another Elinchrome w/ a 22" beautydish, camera left and another Elinchrome with an octagon as fill, camera right.

    Lighting gears belonged to my friends in their studio.

    Seconded on the lighting. Like the infinite white approach, too.

    Does that matter? Surely they would all give the same result in that situation, where it is the quality of the studio lighting that determines the success of the image?

    Great model, great picture, great lighting! :smile:

    Overall nice shot but your key light could have been a little lower or a small under eye bounce board to help with under eye puffiness

    You're right! I adjusted in Photoshop so it's not as noticeable. Thanks for the heads up! Let me know what you think now!

    yes better, but you can control that with lighting and leave yourself less Photoshop work to do

    It's actually a very easy fix to lighten the eye bag on Photoshop, but you're right though. Better to have it done right during the shoot whenever possible

    One image no big deal but the main advantage to doing it in lighting is if you have to deliver multiple images you will have less retouching time involved.

    Good lighting is the difference between good and great

    and this is a great shot!

    C'mon, that's a fair question on a camera forum. Regardless of your point (100% true, BTW), we all like a little affirmation on our brand choice(s). The post takes on somewhat different meaning if it was an E-P1 versus, say, a GX-1, and a 40-150 or a Leica m4/3 fixed lens, right?

    Not trying to swat the nest, but I wouldn't discourage people from asking stuff like that.
