Studio, Portrait, Still Life, Lighting Equipment and Technique Continuous and Strobe Lighting. (The Sun is considered continuous!) Great ideas are really ten a penny! Technique in setting up the subject is, of course, essential. However, the ability to bring out form, texture, tonality and color is where the skill in lighting provides all the keys to engraving one's ideas on the delivered picture.

Wonderful shot Paul. I'm not much for portraiture, but this image is something special. The lighting is almost perfect, and the expressions on the faces are priceless.

The only complaint I would have is the slight burnout on the nose.

Great image, the two of them compete with each other on who has the best expression, which makes it a very engaging picture.
