Thats amazing work there =D Reminds me a bit of Dave Hill's stuff being so surreal and all. Your subjects look rather powerful and all in the two portraits.

They're all great, but the last one is pure magic! I'm also interested to hear how did you do the light, flash etc.

I think I just fell in love with a lens.

Yeah, I know it's the skill of the photographer, but let's keep things in perspective.

SPECTACULAR!!!

I'm guessing that on the last one, she didn't kick the ball. Someone slowly tossed it AT her, and she kicked as it approached.

Either that or Photoshop.

Thanks Gene. I believe I used 5 lights there, 1 on the left, 2 at the back (you can even see my lightstands at the back, i left them there for a little raw touch), 2 somewhere on the right, all at different heights and settings.

Thanks buddy. I'm a fan of his work, although I don't like applying too much PP on my work. I do very selective PP and Dave Hill's work has a LOT of HDR and PP

Thanks buddy! I did some very selective lighting to accent/highlight certain things I wanted to highlight.

Thanks Ira. You can do killer portraits with ANY lens, trust me.

She did kick that ball, no PP on that ball there. She's a helluva football player

How did the ball freeze but her leg didn't!?

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

These shots were ALL outstanding, but obviously, that last one blew our socks off. You explained the set-up, but what time of day was it?

I'm looking at that little area of sky where there appears to still be sun.

because the leg is faster than the ball :ugh: (if not, how could she kick it? )

These are great! I normally don't like athletic portraits (for example, a guy in a clean football uniform in a three-point stance), but these are wonderful.
