Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Portrait with Spectacles (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Nikon
Location: Home Studio
Date: Jan 7, 2008
Aperture: F4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/30
Galleries: Portraiture, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Jan 8, 2008

My very first attempt at a real portrait. Used two off camera flash units (a SB-800 and SB-600 set left and right) with silver umbrellas controlled by my on-camera flash in Commander Mode.

Converted from RAW to TIFF in Nikon NX.
PSE6 to crop, make minor adjustments and convert to BW, Resize, Add Border, Save for Web.

I know there are a couple of minor glare spots and some shadow showing but I did not have time to have my very patient wife do another sitting before submittal time. Hope you don't pounce on them to bad.

Very nice. The light was a little bright. I've never seen teeth gleam like that before!
