Francesca Vintage Pin-up Style

This one is a first for me - I was trying to go for a Vintage Pin-up style look.

Lighting (all Lencarta) was Octo-box (key light) and strip box (fill) camera left, two lights on the background and a strip box to model right for a little key light.

Chess in check shirt

@Lencarta A quick edit from this evening's shoot with Francesca. I lit Chess with a large Lencarta  Folding Octa Softbox just out of shot to the left.

I really like the eye contact and soft lighting in this shot. The Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II continues to impress with its sharpness, colour and rendering.

BMX jump in Mono

Pity I'd forgotten my flash gun - would have underexposed the background. Ended up over exposing to give some detail in the subject and then converting to mono using Silver Efex.

The fly....

The full shot and a 100% crop of a fly on a branch taken with the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L MKII.

This lens is ridiculously sharp!

Sarah Jemimah - quick snap!

Wide open on the 85L to give very slender dof, processed using Silver Efex.
