    Excellent image. I love the full range of tones presented and how the light gently wraps around the model's features. Great job separating the hair from the background.
    Do it for the love and the money will follow. Do it for the money and you'll never love it.

    Took this with my D80, Nikkor 50mm at f8, two speed lights SB-800 & 600.

    You have to stand for something, otherwise you will fall for anything.
    Despite the high cost of living, itís still very popular.
    Light travels faster then sound, that is why some people appear bright until they open their mouth.

    This is simply stunning. The lighting is spot on perfect...your model almost looks like she's made of glass. Nice post work!

    Thank you. For separating the hair from the background, we did a 3 light rim light here. 1 sb900 on each side and another one with snoot directly above the model and pointing downwards towards her hair.

    Hey Curt, both speedlights are on the right of your model?

    Curt, I love your portrait . . . really tells a story and nice use of flash.

    Ranie, your portraits are just awesome! You have obviously mastered the use of light. The rim light you used, was it continuous or strobe?

    Thank you, I used two speed lights, SB 600 on the left side pointing at the subject, the other (SB 800) on the right side bounced of a white wall.

    I came across this group of "weekend warriors" who spend their time and money re-enacting WWII battles.
