    Thanks for the tutorial!
    C’est l’fun! Vous êtes Québécois!

  • Richard says:

    Very good. It would be interesting to know what ISO, aperture, and speed you used for the photos. Thanks.

  • Jean-Francois O'Kane says:

    Dear Richard,
    As a rule of thumb I do not give specific satas on a pic. The setup that you will do will differ in poer-distance or camera type. The most important feature is to know how to do it and to expose not to burn your highlights.
    This particular set was done at 400ISO-1/40th-f5.0.

  • Richard says:

    Thanks. I can understand why you would use a tripod…:)

    She’s smokin’! Nice looking models ALWAYS help… 😉

  • Jeff says:

    I agree that a good looking model helps but I want to see a real 50+ year old executive that needs REAL soft light filled in all around.
    I think I would like to have a little reality here in that most “executives” getting shots are older and need different lighting needs.

    But that said young or old I would have brought a softbox in and cross lit the subject wrapping the light around her.

  • says:

    Very nice tutorial. Thank you.

  • Nick says:

    There are several things that you forgot to mention in your tutorial. One is why your using a lens hood. And two you need to talk about the amount of power your supplying to any artificial light source.
    And lastly I would have gotten an additional model who wasn’t fair skinned so that more types of people are covered in your tutorial.
