Nathalie and I wanted to do something with a theme, and Harley Quinn seemed like a good fit :) Spending some time in PS for these, but a good exercise!

I saw this super cool music video / short film by Carpenter Brut / Seth Ickerman called Turbo Killer and wanted to do something with that feeling. Maybe not as cool but still something, hope you like it :)

The octabox didn't come with a grid no. I don't find that the grid affects the light too much when you are this close with relatively large reflectors, but they do help keeping light not hitting into the camera. Not a major problem anyway with modern coatings, but it doesn't hurt to use them :)

Thx Peter! This is from another session but it was very similar setup for the light. Octabox from above/front, with silver reflector below. Rimlight with softboxes from each side back and a light towards the background with a gel (red). The background is mid-gray originally. All flashes are Youngnuo YN-560-series and no-name modifiers.. nothing fancy but I find that it works very well for me.

First out of 2017! Ok, almost the first month have passed, but sometimes editing and posting takes time.. Second time working with Alicja, hope you like them! Also, I found the FA100 F2.8 Macro to work very well as a portrait lens. On with the focus limiter for safety, then its fast AF, sharp, good focal length for portrait work. A bit on the heavy side perhaps, and while not slow not super fast either.

You are right, the street shots and autumn shots are both from Lund. They are geotagged and should be visible to you in flickr, so probably that exact street could be found :)

First time in the studio with Caroline (we did one outside before). A fun theme to work with mixed light now at Christmas, flash plus Christmas lights :) Been a while since I shot with the good old K-01 but it needs to be used from time to time :) Lets see if you can spot the Pentax camera in the third picture (right answer in the tag on flickr). Merry Xmas!

Well, I started out with the DA70 as my first main portrait lens, and a good general short telephoto. The FA77 adds just a little bit more character, shorter DoF.. Since I got the FA100 Macro I've tried it a few times for portraiture and it works very well for that. Focusing speed with Phase Detect is very fast, and the focusing limited doesn't make it faster, but avoids it going into the macro range, if it should start to hunt (rare). For some reason it is very slow to focus in live view. From what I can tell from a few sessions, image quality and focal length is fine for portraiture, but it is much larger and heavier than the DA70 or FA77.

It is actually pretty funny story, I got my FA100 Macro for free with another lens, it was supposed to be broken, but I haven't found anything wrong with it six months later... :) Perhaps a bit soft at wider apertures and macro range, but really nothing out of the ordinary.
