Hi, just a little posting of a portrait I captured some days before christmas.
In the photo are my brother in-law and his girlfriend.

I tried to make a little home made-studio with a sheet behind the subjects, an external flash (Pentax 540FGZ) at their right side, handheld by an "assistant" and with a large softbox on it.
On-camera I had my other flash, Sigma530St.
The background was modestly lighted with a working-lamp of some kind
The lens was of course my most trusted lens, FA43mm f/1.9 Ltd.

Here`s the picture on Flickr:

And here`s the set on flickr:

Cheers and merry christmas with a happy new year to the lot of you

the lighting on this one at least seems a little on the bright side.....which in turn is causing some harsh shadows there....have you tried reducing levels a bit in PS?
