My first commercial shoot
Posted By: alohadave, 11-11-2008, 11:19 AM

I got a gig from a friend of mine to do several photoshoots for an ad campaign that his company is running. We had the first shoot on Saturday, and of the shots I took, they picked this one (It's a postcard campaign).

Not only was it my first shoot, it was my first real time using off camera flash to help control the light.

Is the attention intentionally directed to the sky? I could have imagined to see a little more of his and her right hands....

The lighting is good indeed!

They are putting though bubbles above their heads on the post card, so I had to leave enough room at the top of the frame to fit them.

Damn Brit

Looks like you got the lighting right Dave, if I might make one criticism it is that the figures are too centred, I think it would be better if they were more to the left.
