My first tinker with off camera strobism and high key (gulp!)

Pleased with catch lights and no glasses reflections. A bit crude in the B&W curves I know but learnt loads doing this brief shoot. Now I "know" the difference between broad and short lighting and how look at a face before lighting

Interesting shot, highly effective.
Best regards, John

thanks John, the image was needed for some business promotion and works fine in a smaller scale - too harsh at 1600 pixel square to my eyes

Used a K10D at 1/125 and ISO100 with 58mm Voigtlander on f4. Mix of ambient light from big south facing window and an old AF280T set on Auto Green to bounce off the far ceiling above the window. Subject was towards one corner of the room (on their right shoulder) so I hung some silvered windscreen reflectors on the wall to lift the shadow side as I didn't want a flat, front lit high key effect

I'd be really pleased with a result like this
