    Re: Black and White Portraits

    I shot this one with just one speed light on the left hand side, f8 50mm nikkor lens. To create that shadow.

    Light travels faster then sound, that is why some people appear bright until they open their mouth.

    Awesome capture of emotions there. Nice bokeh too. What lens did you use here if I may ask?

    I used the 70-300mm f4.5-5 VR, shot at 70mm focal length. I absolutely love this lens . . . read someplace that this was one of Nikon's best-kept secrets.

    I agree. The 70-300 VR is a bang for the buck lens. Nice shot.

    I totally agree. Actually can't remember the last time I pulled out my old "push-pull" 80-200/2.8.

    Thanks Curt. Still learning here.
    Nice shot by the way. Nice reflections on the glass. Was your speedlight inside a softbox?
