Self Portrait-First Attempt with lighting
Feb 10, 2013

I was doing some self portraits learning lighting yesterday in my make shift studio and wanted some feedback on what everyone thought about my lighting attempt.

The main light ( SB-700 w/umbrella)was placed at 45 deg to the cameras right. A reflector was placed 45 deg to the cameras left. A hair light ( A Bescor LED light I usually use for my video ) was placed behind me off to the cameras left. The background I used is a portable Savage kit I just got my B & H.

The camera used is a Nikon D7000 with a 50mm 1.8g. Iso 100, 125th at 5.6.

This is really my first attempt at doing portraits and am planning on doing a lot more in the future as I learn lighting and posing.

I did some pp, softening my skin and adjusting the highlights and shadows a tad in Photoshop.
