so I bought some lights....
Lens: Tamrom 90 macro Camera: K30 
Posted By: Cee Cee, 07-02-2014, 08:42 AM

you know, the cheap softbox kits available on ebay, so I wanted to check them out but nobody would model for me, enter "Bruce" he'll do anything for an ear rub

the lighting really looked quite bright to the eye but I was a little supprised by the figures, nothing adventurous with the positioning, just flood from 45' on each side & overhead.
not sure about the white balance, these were on AWB, when I set it to 5500K as the lights claim to be, the pics looked a little yellow to me.
these are straight out of the camera no post at all, just resized.

@ f2.8 1/125 ISO400


100% crop from the above shot, ( love that Tamron Lens )


@ f4 1/90 ISO400


even Bruce got sick of me and "Jimi" had to step in as he so often does when I'm testing things photographic, he does a good job of keeping still but he always blinks !

@ f5.6 1/60 ISO400
