Thanks. The image is a bit softer than I would have liked but it was taken at the max end of the 50-500. Took some backed off a bit but I liked this one best because his gaze was directly at me. Grateful for the opportunity though.

Near Gleason, Wisconsin.

- Hwy 51 north
- Hwy 17 north
- Right on County J
- Right on Estonian Church Road

If you do an internet search on "Estonian Church Gleason Wisconsin" you should find more info.

I shot this image at 6:45 a.m. but wish I would have arrived earlier (the sky is blown out a bit - I should have bracketed the image). In the morning, if you let the sun get too high the sun will shine towards the front of the church and cast some awful looking shadows onto the church. I was lucky, there was a bit of cloud cover preventing the sun from casting shadows. If I had to do it over again I would either arrive earlier or arrive an hour before sunset....

Hope this helps...

I prefer the Black and White versions. Agree with the others that there needs to be a definitive subject, the sky is a little blown out and the foreground looks over-processed. The image has potential just needs a few tweaks - :)

Thanks for the comment - appreciated. Great catch on the brown spot - you're right and I'll clean that up - very helpful.

The set up -

I set up a couple of background stands at minimum height (approx. 2 feet). Threw a black piece of cloth I had lying around onto the background stand. Put a 2.5 by 4 foot mirror on the floor. Shot the image with the K20D and the D-FA 100mm on tripod at same level (maybe slightly higher) than the subject. For lighting I initially used one flash head strobe (sunpak 383), at camera left and bounced toward the ceiling at full power, no diffuser. This lit things up nicely on the top of the subjects but I wanted a little more pop and light coming from the front, so I added a 2nd Sunpak flash diffused with a white shoot-thru umbrella positioned behind the camera, slightly right (just over my right shoulder). The 2nd strobe improved the lighting greatly IMO. Hope this helps and feel free to ask more questions if I wasn't clear....

Thanks for the helpful reply DK77 - I appreciate it much. That's the 2nd suggestion to darken the reflection - I haven't had the chance yet but I'm definitely going to give that a try to see the difference.

I have to admit though, the comments regarding bits of the background being visible? - I just don't see it. My monitor is calibrated and I've checked the images out on a 2nd monitor. I don't see anything but a black background. Could you please point those parts out? I'd like to fix them up. Maybe my 'ol eyes aren't as good as they used to be....... :)

Thanks again much for your helpful tips.....

The other day I was a bit bored and decided to try some shots that are outside of my regular style of shooting. Set up a black cloth, threw down a mirror on the floor and set up a couple of strobes....

Maybe it's because these are different from the typical shots I like to take, but I'm having a difficult time deciding what I think about them..... Kinda like 'em, kinda think they are just so-so, not really sure......

What do you think? Helpful constructive criticism is always appreciated and helps me improve - :)
