My Versions of Kelly

While Larry and Steve immediately set to work placing strobes and figuring out lighting patterns, Shirley and I liked the natural light that was hitting Kelly in this alley behind Yaga's.  I thought this shot was taken in ambient light only but I can see some catchlights in her eyes when zoomed in closer, so I am not sure if that is only from reflected light or if a flash actually fired....sorry about not having all the information, it got a little confusing with one pretty model and four avid photographers. 
I have not had internet access on my main computer all week so thought I would use a flash drive and my laptop to post some images but I forgot to look up my exposure settings.  I was using my 50mm 1.8 and probably around f5.6 to get the brick in focus too, but will have to check that and post it later.
update:  No, I had already switched from my 50mm to the 24-70 and this was shot at 6.3 and 1/50th, ISO 200.


  1. Well done Cindi! Very pleasing portrait nicely exposed!


  2. Nice comfortable pose; fits well with her wardrobe and the background environment.

    In a perfect world it might work to include her whole left foot in the crop.

    Nicely done!

    PS: This might also work well as a black and white.

  3. It must be the large jpg in the post, because all of Kelly is there in the full image. Even the right brick trim of the window opening is there...maybe I should reduce the size of the jpg that first shows in the daily post, but you can click on it to see the full version too. I did try some of these in black and white but for me her white t shirt stood out way too much against the brick and her face became secondary. However, another image worked well in monotone and it is scheduled to be posted in a couple of days.
